this is epic and creative, your attention to details like rust and sea water colors is inspiring alone, but your imagination and how it's grounded in a sense of reality just makes all of your work amazing to me. I love your grand scenes.
I've seen the original painting among others last weekend at the Aethercircus and have to say, that these images on deviantart, although they look already amazing, don't live up to the fantastic details they really have.
Beautiful work! If I could have afforded it, I would have bought one (most probably this one, as the "Sea soldier" is one of my favourites).
