I've looked over the art in this forum and it just excellent. there is some wonderful talent you are all to be commended.
My artistry is with words not images and I've been working on novel for some time now. It's coming along nicely, but would it would be great help to have concept art.
I can't offer payment at this time, but if the thing hits you'd have a pretty nice in.
Other than that I can only offer a story that might inspire some wonderful art.
I guess as an example I would offer the ships of the story: Myst Clippers. The world is permeated by "Myst" a volitile and caustic lowlying gas. Myst clippers-trade ships that travel between outposts of civilization- have a specialized foil coming off the sides of the ship to make them float above the myst and traditional sails power the ship forward along with engines(Much like sailing ships circa 1900) To power the ship Ions are skimmed off the myst to replenish the energy cells. the skimmers leave a bluish trail much like the bioluminescent jelly fish do today.
imagine such a ship sailing through the night. Or sailing to esape a firestorm of ignited myst with waves of liquid fire.
