IDW #125: Pirate Dirigible
Topic: Pirate Dirigible
Background: Yarr! The title of this weeks' topic is pretty self-explenatory I think. There's no restrictions in terms of time-frame or Fantasty/Sci-fi for this one, either.
A couple of things you might want to think about though is how the pirate's ship is kept in the air and how it actually attacks other airships/castles -punching balloons only means their precious cargo ends up in a big crater on the ground after all. Also, you might want to give your dirigible some personality to fit that of its captain!
For those that are not sure what a dirigible is: Dirigible - Wikipedia
1. Design and draw Pirate Dirigible!
2. That's it... now draw!
Deadline: Saturday, April 24

The "Czarnian", also known as Shadow of Doom to ground people float the skies of the old lands extorting larger cities for huge ransoms. Refusal to pay leads to a bombardment of the city lasting for days or weeks from safe height. When the citydeffence is taken out an enourmous fortress/aka anchor are lowered filled with pirates to search the ruined city for gold, supplies and to murder survivors. Behind the ship a long rag made out of a thousand defeated cities flags hang to witness of the Czarnians ruthlessness.
The upper "ballon" part also works as a launching pad for smaller gliders and ballons to encounter similiar pirate armadas or the Emperial Airship Patrol.
Gona try and add an armada of smaller vessels to give it some scale, its supposed to be huge (notice the ordinary sized cannon windows besides the three large ones). Some perspective issues to sort out aswell.

Ragnj: Great entry! Dig your style and creativity - very playful. I would increase the size of the top element (I assume it's where the gas is, to make the ship fly). The size is too close to the bottom part (the ship). But you probably are already aware of this. Cool piece in any case.

the shell of the collossal ubermantium beetle, lightweight and cannon proof, combined with the supertough swim bladder of the enormous gourdwhal makes an impressive combination, pirate ingenuity at its finest, furnace engines provide the heat and propulsion and fuelled by anything that will burn, wood, coal, people......
