    well, i like it.
    i think you did a great job. its kind of hard to read the wires.. i would beef their thickness up a bit, but other than that its a pretty solid piece IMO.
    although... you do loose "cool points" for having a DA account...

    its the FF section mate, you see more asspats than critiques here, simply because the pieces are generally beyond the stage of needing in depth critique.

    as for the image itself, i really dig it (well, i have to admit i have a soft spot for anything steampunk). i agree with the observation made that the wires connecting the balloon are a little lost against the bg, but other than that you've done well to ground the piece in space, and the textures are lovely

    another critique: steampunk rocks... and you have captured an awesome atmosphere. You going to make prints?

    Looking for other Denver area artists!

    meh
    it just kinda irked me because it wasn't even a decent asspat either.
    "nice, keep posting" seems kinda rude to me.

    I think this is pretty gorgeous, I agree that the atmosphere works well. I really like how well you captured the lighting, very subtle and convincing.

    "A drawing is not necessarily academic because it is thorough, but only because it is dead. Neither is a drawing necessarily academic because it is done in what is called a conventional style, any more than it is good because it is done in an unconventional style. The test is whether it has life and conveys genuine feeling."- Harold Speed

    It's beautiful enough, but I don't read it as a pirate ship. It seems too...elegant. It seems a pirate ship would rapidly become rather dinged up.


    Unless, of course, there's some story reason for the above I don't know about.
