Beat to Quarters by artofjokinen Beat to Quarters by artofjokinen
Hi guys!

It's been a good while since I've posted anything. Life has really been hectic during the past 6 months. To mention just a few things that have happened are that we purchased a house with my girlfriend, we got a dog and I moved to work for Ubisoft. So a lot has been going on and not that much time to devote to personal work.

So here's a personal project that I've been working on and off for a while. I always loved these great ships from the age of sail as a kid and often tried to draw them with miserable results. So a while ago I decided to give one a try again and see if I've learned anything in the past 15 years. I'll let you be the judge. These can be really difficult to paint well as the shapes are incredibly complex and the amount of detail can be exhausting. This picture represents a sixth rate frigate serving in the royal navy.

I will post a tutorial of the process later.

Hope you enjoy the painting!

-Juhani

I love the age of sail too! I love the books, histories, etc.  I love the art, and yours is very, very good.  I'm not sure if I have the skill necessary, but, with your permission, I will test my skills.

Really amazing work with the movement of the waves

Would you mind if I use also this one for a home made project please.

With a friend we are creating an adventure for our groups of players based on the card game system called Pathfinder Adventure Card game (from Paizo Publishing). And we are searching for illustrations for our cards (characters, landscape, spells, weapons, etc..)
This adventure is gonna be play by our players and then share with the community of players and that's all. It's of course a nonprofit project, just the pleasure to do it and share our fan work.


thank you in advance for your answer (positive or negative)

Sure, as longs as the project is non profit it's fine.

Glad you liked the image!

First of all, congratulations with your new house, your new job and your dog ( I presume your girlfriend was already in the picture ;)). I  don't know what your ships looked like 15 years ago, bu this is fantastic. I like the little details like the man in the crow's nest. Your other art is awesome too. Keep up the good work :).
