Yorktown by RadoJavor Yorktown by RadoJavor
My latest work for the game Empire. Its just my artistic vision of the Yorktown siege at the end of the Indipedence war. The picture is a little bit patriotic which is not a bad thing, especially on the thanksgiving weekend:)
I used a more colours as usually, the picture shall be somehow optimistic, from American point of view at least . I would like to see your opinion about it. The characters were still a pain to do for me, but its gettin better I hope.
The whole thing was done in some 30-40 hours, just photoshop and intuos tablet.

Wow! I always admired the art in the loading screen for Empire Total War. I'm glad I finally found the creator on deviantart!

It is a early form of a mortar(they say it is a howitzer ingame, i just thinks it looks more like a mortar) that instead of firing straight forward it fired in a step arc, lobbing shells of obstacles, had less range than the usual cannons(long barrel).

Awesome! Shows a pretty good image of what Yorktown might've looked like to the Patriots PoV!
