The Airship Battle by SpikedMcGrath The Airship Battle by SpikedMcGrath
An epic airship battle unfolds high above the world. Under heavy fire the crew of the HMS Monsoon unleash a broadside on all Port side guns while patchers hurry to repair the damaged balloon. In the background the once mighty HMS Tempest begins it's final descent as her crew scramble for the lifeballoons.

With all of that smog it looks like that blimp in the middle will crash among shrouded hills. You could say it was carried *puts on sun spectacles* on wings of fire. :)

This is absolutely amazing! I'm in the middle of the Nanowrimo and my story largely takes part on airships. This is almost exactly how I'm picturing the epic fight scene in my mind so it's more than a little stunning to see it drawn out. Thank you for adding to my inspiration. I mean the detail! the one guy falling overboard that no one even realizes just yet. Wow. Just wow.

I have seen a lot of airships over the years & these are by far the best I have yet encountered. It's as if you have reached into my subconscious & pulled out these ships. For that I am forever great full. They are soooo cool! MORE MORE MORE I can not get enough ships in this style!!!
