I'm getting a little more confident at doing speedpaints of ships by suggesting, rather than overtly depicting. It's the best one can do without some pretty solid understanding of the workings of sails and rigging, wind and wave: An amalgamation of photo references thrown together with a slight nod towards the general colour palette from the film, Master and Commander. Done for a friend.
Just posting something to acknowledge my lack of updates recently, and to say I'll be making a double effort to post regularly again soon enough. Got some sketchbook scanning to do. My thanks to those who expressed dismay at my laziness. I appreciate the kick up the butt. :)
