Shenkuu Airship Concepts by shoomlah Shenkuu Airship Concepts by shoomlah
Concept sketches for the Shenkuu airship, the final version of which was featured in one of the most recent Neopets plots. Lots of references to Chinese junks, fishing ships... It was a fun project to research.

I dislike Neopets, but I absolutely love this design. I have an idea for a fanfic that puts the characters of my favourite show (hetalia) in a steampunk airship pirates setting (I'm weird in that way) And I'd like to use this as a reference for Asian (pirate) aircrafts.

Great design, very Oriental. I love the look of the brush strokes and how decisive your lines are in pen.

That was your design? Talk about an awesome airship. I nearly passed out when I recognized its Oriental desgin, I've been wanting an Shenkuu for years.

Keep up the fabulous art.

I read an interview of yours on Nothing But Neopets and I was like WOAH! I know her DArt account! I also think I voted for a Kyrii you once had in the BC on your wormtongue account on Neopets, but that seems like eons ago. Great work! The Shenkuu mini plot was quite intreaguing. Did you draw the comics?

Really nice! I like the balance on the first one, with the jouses on it. The second one also reminds me of those fish...lion fish they're called, I think. Nice concept design, thanks for sharing :)

Great work. The designs look like polar opposites of each other (almost like you flipped one backwards), and yet they're both great. I'd have difficulty choosing just one without borrowing elements from the other. :)

I really loved that ship in the plot. But then, I also really like the new world.

You did a great job designing it, by the way.

the top one looks good, the only thing that catches my attention and screams unreality is the tail-sail... why would it be billowing out backwards if the other sails are billowing forwards?

The bottom one reminds me of a seadragon
