my first matte painting in a while (except the space art). it also looks a lot like a matte painting i did a while back and which also had a similar name :P

im kind of happy with it although im not sure about the airship design

That's an amazing work! The aerial perspective is stunning and I really like the "wicker" texture on the airships.

I enjoy the simple design of the airships. It's a nice change from the way they are usually depicted as massive and complicated. You're designs also remind me of a sort of... I guess I could say almost steampunk era style, or the designs of balloons people had during the early attempts of flight.

The village is interestingly large and I will admit tha the lack of variety in the buildings is strange (but this is a very small complaint). I also find it fascinating that you chose tje location of the village to be next to a waterfall. This I find to be one of the coolest parts of the painting.

Finally the muted colors of the overall piece is very calming. It gives it and effective vintage or aged and worn-out feel to the village, which adds a lot of character and potential story.

I know I pretty much just did a critique in a regular comment but I'm not good at doing a formal critique so I'm sorry if it's bothersome. Thank You.

Man, you really do have such a special way of interpreting a landscape, or a spacescape, or anything that really matters!!! Thank you for this!

I've never tried mattepainting, but if I was working on this piece I would have used some urban photography to build up detail in the city. The urban part of this painting is quite bland and unformed, there are no wires, towers, or lights. It's got no signs of life.
The airships I at first hated for their simplicity I now really like, the way the shading on their bellies contrasts with the warm, airy background... it adds a very subtle and appreciable depth. And while we're talking about depth, the largest airship is difficult to estimate the scale of, and I think it's due to the way the water and the buildings beneath it have been drawn, if it floated above open water it might be clearer for the audience to 'place' it in the scene.
As for the colours... well the orange roof keeps drawing my eye - but it's not really interesting. So you've got a focal point and you've captured my attention, but not in a way that matters. If the brightest colours (even just a few tiny specks of bright green, like lights on a plane) were on the airships, the picture as a whole would be much more appealing.

I'm not premium so I can't critique it. But I can criticize it.

yeah, thank you for criticizing it :) i agree and i had problems finding images which resembled the kind of architecture i was going for. i also noticed the other things you're saying, like the scale problem and the lack on signs of life, but i thought it had been lying around for too long so i didn't fix it :P
