Clash of Flagships by VentusAerus Clash of Flagships by VentusAerus
What's happening:
The battle cruiser Manticore has suffered a sneak attack from the appropriately-named cruiser Ambuscade. As the Manticore jockeys for a better position, Ambuscade readies her main guns. The commander of the Manticore knows his main guns aren't aligned. As a desperate tactic, he orders his subcannons to fire on the Ambuscade, hoping that the ship will tilt off-balance and the shot will miss. The fate of the island in the background rests on the commander's gambit.

I just wanted to provide a detailed scene of a ship fight, like the ones that could be found on Arcadia.

There's plenty more explodey ship-battling goodness in Clash of Flagships II, which is somewhere back in my gallery. :D

Glad you're so absorbed in it.

:nod: Very nice detail. I enjoy a sketchy drawing now and then. Your perception is good, why not try some still life? I think you could do some wonders with some practice in that category :)

Holy shit, dude! Man, now I feel totally inadaquate when I look back at my drawings. :P

Really, that is incredible. I love the detail. I suck at doing massive pictures, which are why mine are usually so small. But this is incredible. Well, it also hurts that I suck at drawing machines. :P

Thsoe drum-like objects are called capstans. A basic part of ANY ship, really: they are essential to the anchors. The anchor chains wind around the capstans when a motor runs, enabling the ship to raise and lower her anchors. KNautical KNow-how. :D

S'alright.
True, it is kind of obvious, but to err is human.
Besides, not many have that KNautical KNow-how that I possess. : D

Holyshiznit. Again, I'm am completely wowed by the amount of detail here. The fact that I can see every bolt, bit of metal, every teeny tiny detail in both ships has got me sitting here staring at the screen with my mouth open.
Just, wow.

Well, the ships aren't the real focus, actually.
I spent FAR more time on the scenery and the clouds, rather than the ships. I wanted to make the viewer seem as if they were on a small boat watching the fight, and could look at the sky islands and the clouds as well.
Still. It rules.
