Great artwork! Ties in to the scenes currently running through my head. 
looks beautiful. Which Total WAr game was it done for?

I have to correct you: if there is a Venetian galley, the town's name is RAGUSA, not Dubrovnik, which is the Serbo-Croatian name after the 1947 annexation.

The current name was officially adopted in 1918 after the fall of the Austria-Hungary, but was in use from the Middle Ages. It is also referred to as Dubrovnik in the first official document of the treaty with the Ban Kulin, the Ban of Bosnia in 1189. The name Dubrovnik was used by Slavonic speakers who also presented the majority in the city. Aristocrats were using Latin and the Dubrovnik dialect of the Romance Dalmatian language as official languages and they also named town (and republic) Ragusa.

There's an amazing Croatian shoegaze band called EMBASSY 516 from Dubrovnik. It's worth checking out...
