    I have nothing really profound or insightful to add, but it is a very nice piece.

    Beautiful scene. Big sky and tall smoke plume, makes everything else look small.

    Thanks for sharing that.

    I second that! One can almost feel the crisp cold air in that scene.

    Well done! I like how it is somewhat impressionistic, in that there is just enough detail to tell the story and let my mind fill in the rest.

    These would be great to decorate a crew lounge with. If only I had a crew lounge...

    What kind of time does it take you to do something like that?

    Well, it's hard to say. As it is divided into lots of different phases; the design phase, roughing it out and actually painting it.
    A rough estimate is 40 hours...

    A lot of patience involved to spend the time, and get such nice results.
