SKY PIRATES by moonxels SKY PIRATES by moonxels
here's my latest
new and faster technique this time.

those are the sky pirates from the emerald forest
their prey is in sight ;a big cruise ship near the huge waterfall of the forest...

EDIT:fixed the lighting and the perspective a bit.

Friggin' sweet perspective. And the gorgeous landscape just highlights it all. And is it me, or did you base the pirate ship on WWII U-boats? It's a great design choice.

It's an anime where the first episode starts out with actual sky pirates; the main character was adopted as a young age and trained to rob other ships until he eventually found a rare treasure and was forced to evacuate the ship during a raid with it.

I can't get over how insanely good this looks. The colors, the textures, the angles, the intensity and atmosphere of the moment... The design of both ships, and the surreal contrast between them, artifical, rough and cold in color, and the daunting backdrop of a massive, green, natural expanse. Incredible work.

Glad it did Moonchild, you're welcome. It's true and well deserved. Can't imagine the effort that goes into each one of these Illustrations.

well there could be a story for sure:
the big ship is full of tourists that visit the huge waterfall and the pirates are there to take their money!
