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.

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.

Now this is what I call artistic talent. Still holds up well after 13 years.

This looks like that one scene in Pirates of the Caribbean where they have one ship and think that they will defeat their enemy but their enemy comes with thousands of ships.(Curse of The Black Pearl

I always wondered who it was that made those cool 18th century style paintings from the game. You should give permission to have these paintings in an art museum somewhere!

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.
