The Formidable

By JanBoruta

Giftart for ~Gekster :icongekster: (commander Farrell), she was the second person to catch my 10,000th pageview ages ago. She wanted to see her ship - a sloop of war, the Formidable, sailing through a storm.


This wasn't an easy piece, it took me about 10 hours to draw. And I'm not happy with it anyway. Sorry for the crappy lightning :P HB and 4B pencils.

Maybe you'll like it :D

I love the ship drawings! But as to the Formidable, of course the lighting is crappy, it's a storm! However, it would be a brave (or foolish) captain to carry all that sail in a storm. I'd only carry a double reefed main sail and storm jib on my boat. A large three master like this might carry topsails only, with some stailsails. The effect is nice, though, so lets pretend the storm came up suddenly and they haven't roused the watch yet. ^_^

Fabulous! It's got such life and energy, I can practically hear the thunder and the ship working against the storm!

rysunek zajebisty, ale realizm leży... żaden statek nie popłynie pod pełnymi żaglami w taką pogode ;)

No bez przesady, ja uważam że NAPRAWDĘ wiele rzeczy mi tutaj nie wyszło tak, jakbym chciał... Mam ten dyskomfort :/ No ale jak mam pożyczyć "kawałek talentu" to chyba część mi zostanie? :D
