Imperial Gravity Defiers by sketchboook Imperial Gravity Defiers by sketchboook
Well... another shiny example of my steampunk obsession:-)
Fleet of British Imperial Gravity Defiers flying over desert city somewhere in Arabia. Huge and well-armed Gravity defiers are the latest and most devilish tools of oppresion in the Imperial Arsenal.

Imperial Gravity Defiers by *sketchboook

On the one hand it looks funny, on the other one it looks scary. Nevertheless it is a very well painted scene. Make sure to check out the rest of his gallery as well. It is full of inspirational speedpainting. ( Featured by TobiasRoetsch )

These things couldn't be scarier if they had slinky shaped legs with claw feet and brass cog cannons...

Darn those imperialists, always gotta be keepin' a bro-man down!

Not oppression my good man, we are merely giving them civilization while keeping them in line. Nothing oppressive about that.

Very cool, I love the design. one question, what are those little red lights?

spreading of civilization or opression sometimes can be the same thing:-)

i have no idea what are these red lights.. some mechanical "eye" things...?

This is so very true.

I thought they were muzzle flashes, but they looked to small and localized. Any way, I really like it.

Just imagine if the Imperialist British Empire in the 1700-1800s had space flight. We'd be saying
    "The Suns never set on the British Empire."
