Lions of the sea by Scebiqu Lions of the sea by Scebiqu
long time no update.

I loved to draw ships and naval battles when I was a kid, so this is somewhat a "revamp" of a collection of older works no longer existing.

I borrowed the title from the great pirate metal band Running Wild. Ahoy.

Love the back end of the ship, such great metal work and the way it towers up, with the side balanced by the turrets.

I'm just in awe!! Staggering detail yet great clarity of design. You balance all that noodly structure with great freshness and gesture. If I tried a scene like this it would become way to stiff. I'm beyond impressed!

Why didn't i see this earlier? Aw man, this is really exciting. I'm really drawn to the water, though that may be because I imagine it is difficult to paint. Looks great!

Thanks! The water wasn´t that difficult but it turned out to look a bit shallow.
Maybe I should have made higher and more translucent waves. Also the middle ship could have been pushed back a bit via less saturation/contrast.

I am trying to imagine how you would make the waves more 'translucent'. It's difficult for me to even fathom. I can imagine trying it, but it seems SO HARD to imply 'translucency' in water without going all the way and showing what's in the water. I should study more OTL

It's really helpful to see you talk about your pieces this way. You have no idea how much I appreciate it.
