Airships Process by AlexRuizArt Airships Process by AlexRuizArt
Here's a look at my process on this one, with some closeups added. Basically, I started out black and white, until I was satisfied with the composition, perspective, and values. Once you have those nailed, your colors are much more likely to turn out good.
Hope this helps some of you guys:)

Thank you so much for this! You know? i've always wondered how did you do stuff in the first part... Do you use pictures, or reference of them? Or you begin making lines with no sence, and find shapes?
I've always wanted to do something like this, but i really don't have any idea about how to start

very nice. i like how you did the close ups on smaller details that we might miss by viewing the pic. it's amazing how well detailed this picture is. and i like how you don't do just details to have details. they serve a purpose and do not overcome the entire piece.

This so will come in handy!
I've been trying to practice backgrounds but I just can't x( I never know where to place the variou selements of it or where to center the picture.. I should start by using reference pics and then adding fantasy elements or something.. I dunno.. if you could give me some tips on how you started yourself it would be great!
Anyway, your work is overwhelming and inspiring. I shall watch you
