That's a lot of detail! I can almost hear the cannons thundering, the sound of shattering timber and tearing of sails.

I have a very large tattoo of a map across my waist extending out to the sides. I am looking for a very specific ship. Im going to find the small part of this story on my laptop and send it to you. I want to have this drawn and tattoed on the remaining sides on me. Perhaps you know of this ship. :blowkiss:

Hehehe showing off again eh? Bravo! This is a fantastic work, i can't decide whether it reminds me more of an exceptional modern artist or the works of a c18th etcher...

In any case, truly Brilliant!

We really don't get enough good maritime art as it were on this site.

I was lucky enough to see the Lord Nelson display at the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich a few months ago. I loved the Battle of Trafalgar reconstruction. ^_^
