La Rochelle by RadoJavor La Rochelle by RadoJavor
Finally i can start to post my newer works. I have some 5 pictures and wil lpost them in next 2 months hopefully.
This is a painting for the new project of the Creative Assembly.

The name of the game is Empire: total war. As I love to paint old ships I really enjoyed working on those pictures. This is only first one, the rest is waiting to be published.
The Image captures early mornig mood in huge french harbour La Rochelle, year 1715. The big ship on the left is the grandious Le Louis Quinze, most beatifull and biggest ship of its age.
I did try to make the ship as real as possible, reference was the model in naval museum in Paris. The general mood of the picture is maybe similar to some old oils from the 18.th century, that was my small goal.

The whole pic was done in about 30-40 hours. Original size is something like 2600pix so it was somehow hard to finish.

Im hoping that you will like this picture and i'll be happy to see any comments.

I have had dreams where I look out the window in some variant of a post apocalyptic water world environment and this is what I see. Vast arrays of ships from every era parked neatly next to skyscrapers surging from the water.

Been to La Rochelle a few times - it's an awesome town and this really does justice to how it must have looked when magnificent ships like that used to come into harbour! Lovely job!
