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.

More like a scene from Pirates of The Caribbean: Curse of The Black Pearl.

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!!

Your artworks were a lot of what made Total War: Empire worthwhile for me.

I'd pay money for this. I'd get a frame for it and it would be hanging on the wall of my bedroom, this is incredible.
