Spaceship-Cathedral Hybrid, eh? Part of me wants to ask how exactly that works, but the part of me that's pragmatic and reasonable tells me that isn't the point xD

I like this, I probably would've chosen different colors, but that's just an opinion. I like the idea of anachronism in the future. Which, now that I think about it, is pretty much the definition of Steampunk. So I guess while this doesn't exactly look like Steampunk, I think it's cool for the same reason people think Steampunk is cool.

Cathedrals are the ultimate reminder of something nobody does anymore; not many people build cool churches anymore that I know of; most of the new churches I see being built anymore these days are converted warehouses or something along those lines. The place of worship isn't really the point I suppose, but I really love it when places of worship are built to reflect their importance to the lives of those who frequent them.

Cathedrals are becoming a thing of the past; and for that reason every time I see an old, abandoned Cathedral in some city, decaying, with fire damage that nobody's bothered to repair, it makes me sad. And every time I see a modern cathedral, built with grandeur, to reflect the history of Cathedral building, stuff reminiscent of the stuff of legends, Cathedrals like this one, I'm overjoyed because I know there's still people out there who appreciate these things for their artistic value.

Actually now that I think of it, I should start doing something with those abandoned ones... Go take pictures of the things or draw them. There's so many of them it's ridiculous; and someone ought to capture them somehow before they collapse or get demolished entirely.

ah yes,the cathedrals;
this one Is made similar to a cathedral in my city.
the colors are pretty much the same,but the shape is a bit different from the original.
and as far as space ships are concerned I simply adjusted the shape of it to look somewhat aerodynamic.

and yes,cathedrals unfortunately aren't built the way that they used to be,
churches nowdays are built from cheap materials and very quick,which obviously results in poor aesthetic properties.
although I am in one hand happy about that because I'm definitely not a fan of what has religion turned out to be today-the corrupted,hypocritical firm.
so I am glad that they at least suffer from their churches looking like shyte.
