Art of Wards: Sky Ships

For a couple years now I've been experimenting with designs that capture the feel of sailing ships.  The giant sails constitute so much of the profile of a ship or sailboat.  The other day during a video presentation I was doodling with a pencil and yellow highlighter, sketching the basic forms of these drawings.  I finished them later with French Gray Prismacolor markers and Micron 01 pen, then removed the highlighter yellow color in Photoshop.  The result is Sky Ships, capturing some essence of sail ships... and Ginkgo apparently.
