Meh, each is free to have their own take on a particular concept, be it anthropomorphised ships (see Kancolle, Aoiki Hagane no Arpeggio, all the threads we mentionned so far, etc.), post-Capella history (see Inferno, Derelict, Blue Planet, etc.), or whatever else you fancy.
And besides if it's something that inspires you to practice your art skills, all the better. You can't improve if you don't practice, and if you have to practice, better it be on something that you like. I for one would encourage you to keep going.
