I've been tinkering with this painting on and off for something like a year. For whatever reason I just never had the motivation to see it through, but I always liked the idea so I finally just finished 'er up. Still not entirely happy with it, I was just never able to resolve some of the problems I should've addressed early on, but oh well, can't win em all.

Large parts of it are definitely matte painted if anyone is curious, and for the ship I started with a low res 3D model in Sketchup and did a lot of painting and texturing on it.

Hope you like it!

I'd dare say the San Jacinto and that cutter rising in the background have seen better days. Brilliant work all round mate.

So cool! I love the depth you get with the out of focus water drops. Neato!
May I use parts of the picture for a collage? I really like what you did with the water and it would fit in perfectly.
How did you make the water so realistic?!

Imagine if this is what is really happening in the Bermuda Triangle?

Hey there, just watched your review of the Cintiq 24HD at YouTube, thanks for that. I wonder if the 'touch' version is worth the extra money, what do you think?
Mostly though, I came by here to compliment you on the drawing! Pretty awesome stuff!

Jip, I certainly do like it. The ship looks slightly blocky, but still great
