Edge of the Night by MikeDoscher Edge of the Night by MikeDoscher

A Commonwealth gunboat and an Austro-Hungarian patrol craft play a dangerous game of chicken at the edge of the Venusian atmosphere. Another illustration for Spacecraft of the First World War.

I think I'll probably tend to keep the painting somewhat loose and atmospheric like this, and let the drawings carry more of the interesting technical detail in the future.

I can hear those firestacks roaring, maybe the suffocated hiss of a boiler buried under all that armor

Definitely looking forward to more interesting technical details. I very much enjoy the profusion of smokestacks here- it's excessive in all the right ways. Cracking stuff as usual!

Great work and cool design. And now I see the bunny too, maybe it can transform into a mecha bunny when in a pinch. =D

Darn it, the Download link is broken so I can't see the details. Curse you, dA!

Er- never mind. I got it to work. And I'm glad I did.
