HMS Royal George by RadoJavor HMS Royal George by RadoJavor
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.

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. ( Suggested by Annachuu and Featured by cosmosue )

amazing work sir... but i came across this other art work for a metal band that i listen to and their cover for their album is very similar to your piece.  www.jamiekoala.com/Delta-Voyag… .. Jamie Koala did the work for the band and its pretty identical,  Im just hoping she would at least give you credit for inspiration if she did in fact refer to your work.. I apologize in advance if I may have violated any posting rules of the site but im a firm believer of giving credit to where credit is due..... and this may all be for another as well... but again , great art work!

1 month to complete? Wow, that is a serious commitment. I guess that explains how phenomenal this painting is.

I'd be proud to hang that on my wall.
