Another work for Napoleon total war. HMS Victory in fierce duel with french Bucentaure at begining of the Trafalgar battle.
The biggest and most important battle between Britain and Napoleon empire. Sadly the Admiral Nelson fell on this ship.
The ship is currently sitting in dry dock in navy museum in Portsmouth and Im seeing her quiet often:) Looks amazing, also to think she was launched in 1765. She is the oldest naval ship still in commission.

Not the oldest floating though. That would be the U.S.S. Constitution.

This is a really excellent piece of art. I am composing a piece at the moment which is inspired by sea battles. Would it be possible to use this artwork to go along with the piece on my soundcloud? If so, how would I go about crediting you.

Would you like to see a Battle of Trafalgar movie? If so who do you think would direct it? Please don't let it be Michael Bay, the last thing that battle needs is Linkin Park, American heroes and an alien attack during the battle.

You may already be aware of this, but DA user Blueshadow-the-pony (blueshadow-the-pony.deviantart… is claiming and selling this painting as their own. I submitted a report to DA, but you may wish to submit one of your own as well.

She was indeed launched in May of 1765, but as was the practice, that was just a stripped hull.  She had her masts, rigging, guns and sails added later in the year, was commissioned, then came back for  refit early in the next year.  This is normal because the ships kept getting bigger, and the Masts and sails weren't always the best combination for the design.

Despite being in drydock, the HMS Victory is perfectly ready and able to take to sea.  She's need to flush out her crew, provision up and take on powder and shot, but otherwise, she is sea worthy.    Not bad for a lady 257 years old. ^_*
