Finally finished. The painting I have poured the most time into hands down. For some reason it has taken all summer, in some part because of all the details and in some part due to me not feeling well. My guess it that it lies between 100 och 150 hours of work behind it. Made completely in Photoshop using an Intuos 4.
Anyway. It is supposed to depict a pirate xebec soon to be fired upon by a large French man-o-war. Time period is first half of the 18th century.
The painting is the cover image for a supplement for the Swedish RPG En Garde! III.
With a good crew and fair wind, the Xebec would be far more yar than the lumbering Man-O-War. Might manage to slip away while the Frenchie is trying to follow the tack. Or, things go bad and it is blown to pieces. Love the sunset colors and details!
That is BEAUTIFUL.... Time well spent....this looks like a photo, the details in this is absolutely breathtaking! The sun setting on the ocean is absolutely gorgeous. This whole piece looks positively alive. Bravo....BRAAAAAVO!
