HMS Royal George by RadoJavor HMS Royal George by RadoJavor
Again my favourite theme. Artwork for the game Total war:Empire. This one was my biggest and most complicated painting, so I hope It was worth the time spend I have finished this piece some year ago, but cant post it because the marketing policy.
It shows the Battle of Quiberon Bay near coast of France. The ship on the right is HMS Royal George, pride of the british navy with almost 900 souls on the board.The battle fas fought in late november so the weather was very bad. Ship on the left is french La Superbe, and this ship ended very bad at the end.
I painted the ships as they were, based on many historical resourcess: paintings, engravings and models. And of course a bit of my imagination. No other references were used.
As I said this was my biggest work till now. Original res is 3000x1500, it takes me about one month to finish. Done in Photoshop CS3 from the start. I'll be happy to see your commnets and critics.

Please dont use the picture, because its property of creative
assembly. If its something really serious just write me note.

HMS Royal George by *Radojavor is an intricate piece of beauty, which captures the bigness of a canon fight. The attention to detail is absolutely breathtakingly amazing. ( Suggested by Annachuu and Featured by cosmosue )

Hey, thought that you might like to know that this image has indeed been ripped of and reclaimed as being done "better" by someone else. Go to  rerezzed hms royal george by Thomasscharless  and you'll see what I mean. This guy has also stolen other artists work and claimed it as his own. Go after him!!

Absoloutely phenomenal- you can feel the power just radiating off these ships, this painting. Can't you here the thundering guns? The splintering wood? absoloutely wonderful!
MensjeDeZeemeermin Featured By Owner Jun 9, 2015
Incredibly powerful, a tremendous depiction of naval warfare in the days of wood and flying iron.  So many things done so right here, the black smoke, the confusion, the carnage and havoc.  I always have the same problem with your work, and it seems ungrateful to cavil--but all your ships are very lightly laden, you can see their lower hulls out of the water, when the hulls would lie lower, with the burden of the ammunition, ordnance, and men on board.  But it's just a tremendous painting.  By way of poor thanks, here's a movie I think you'd truly enjoy watching.  The battle takes place off Korea, but they got it right in the film, too:…

The world has seen very few admirals of the quality of Hawke, or Yi Sun-Sin.
