Original watercolor sketch concept [link]

Had this one in my head for a while. Im still exploring style options for my rendering techniques this was the outcome.
Ill post the process very soon check back.
Located on the edge of the western continent on the ruins of an ancient vessel, was once a mere tribe that grew into an expanding nation of humans. The Empire continued to perfect its aerial armored force by building increasingly better floating warships from any ancient technology they could research. The Empire soon conquered each of its neighboring nationís one by one. Few nations could resist the Empire's advanced technology. The Empire's rise to power would eventually lead to its own downfall. A Basic hunger for power corrupted the foundations upon which the Empire was built. ..

This is wonderful, truly. I love how it builds an atmosphere and the care for details. Would you allow me to include it in my Android project? it's an open-ended RPG I'm developing. Thanks in either case, and keep up the good work :)

Hey, it's you.... xD The details are awesome, and creates the atmosphere of a sort of ignorance. It makes it feel as if the people are being played, while the leaders are kind of hiding in their ivory tower laughing at all the unfortunate...

There's something very surreal about the architecture. It looks ancient and vaguely futuristic at the same time.
