Nautilus by AlbertoArribas Nautilus by AlbertoArribas
20,000 Leagues under the Sea is the name of the book written by Julio Verne. The submarine named Nautilus, run by Captain Nemo, navigates carefully between the shadows and sharp rocks of the deep abyss. There, without realizing that death hovers over them in the form of giant tentacles, the fearsome giant squid is about to attack our adventurers.

This illustration was published in the online magazine Imaginarios [link]

I remember in the Book, Captain Nemo mentioned to have based it's design partially on a cigar with a few changes, but it ended up looking more like a Sea Monster of some sort.

I see you also remembered the Spear Point it has on the front to fend off monsters, and attack ships.

I don't know, maybe I'm just spoiled by the Disney verison, but this verison of the Nautilus looks more like a B-17 than a sub. Otherwise, it's a great piece.

Hahaha, great! I cant hide my subconscious influences :D I wanted to design a new concept for Nautilus and I like what you said about B-17 :D.

That's fine. It looks good, just different. It was the front end that reminded me of a B-17- the bomber's plexi-glass nose.
