caravel ship

Done for some dude, printing 1 x 1.5m

I don't always get commissioned for product painting illustration, but when I do, I tell my self, "Be glad for it, this doesn't come too often".

Kitsch as it might be, it was opportunity to paint something different, try to enjoy it, and who knows, maybe it could look decent after all

you can find me also on...

historical? if so what timeframe and what references used ?

Skvor's avatar

vaguely the era of Americas discovery? Christopher Columbus's ship and some artistic license. But totally unrealistic considering the research I do these days

Pls considering doing one purely historical with your today skills and research. Very few on this quality are here on dA. This is exactly the item my group ArsMilitaria | DeviantArt seeks to feature. Meanwhile, pls submit this to our group.

Do the same with other Ive favorited or commented. I'll check your gallery more thoroughly these days and request for others .

"Maybe decent"? It's utterly awesome, worthy of the old masters of seascape painting! Idealized maybe, but no kitsch at all.

I would hang it in my living room and show it to visitors, let me tell you that.

Really good, very painterly. Seriously nice work.

As an aside, taking me a bit of time responding to your interesting email, as there's been lots of stuff to take care of with the game, but I'll get on it.

Love it! I like the mix of the painterly, suggestive clouds with the nicely rendered ship. Great job!

What flag is shown here?
Looks amazing, as always, friend ☺
Skvor's avatar
heh, I don't know. Its not based on any strict historical source. I just came across something similar while looking for references. Some random flag on random ship was it and it had more details. The white fields looked kinda better than just orange (which had to be there for colour accent ) :)

oh, and thank you
