Trafalgar by RadoJavor Trafalgar by RadoJavor
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.

Being an ex-sailor myself and having a fondness for all things naughticle I found this picture particularly moving. You have captured the sheer menacing atmosphere of a naval battle perfectly. Well Done and thanks heartily for your efforts!

She may be the oldest still in commission, but the Constitution is still sea-worthy. Not to nitpick or anything, both are great examples of the Age of Sail.

a lot of spanish new sailor recruits also died in this battle, they fought with courage even when they were enough trained, they fought even when many imperial french ships take sials towards cadiz, spain letting the allied spanish fleet alone, as well many brittish and french sailors died here, not only nelson

Again, wow!!! Totally awe-inspiring. And again, unusually for a battle picture, the emphasis is not just on making the ships look lovely - looking at this picture, you can feel the full bloody thunder of war, the horror, the destruction, the loss of life. Brilliant, brilliant work!

He may have fallen, but it was the most honourable death he could have had I think, dying at sea on the eve of his greatest victory. This is a wonderful painting.

AMAZING.STUNNING.BREATH-TAKING.INCREDIBLE.LOST-FOR-WORDS. The mood of this is incredibly captured. This looks incredibly real, so real, like it was happening right in front of you. An amazing piece of art, and a very well captured scene of the Battle of Trafalgar.

Oh my god… this battle is awesome. True, we Spanish got our arses kicked, thanks to the coward Villeneuve. He got his fleet captured by the Brits, luckily.

Again, wonderful work. You earned a deviantwatch ;) and a llama! :D
