A massive 18th century warship crashes though the waves of a stormy sea as lightning flickers all around it.
The HMS Victory is an English ship of the line that was launched in 1765. It is still a commissioned vessel today and is the oldest navel vessel in the world still in service. The Victory was Lord Nelson's flag ship at the battle of Trafalgar.
Here, I have depicted this famous warship fighting not a human enemy, but a natural one: a massive tempest at sea. Really, I wanted to create an image with a rough stormy sea. The idea of adding the ship came later as I felt there need to be some substantial subject for the viewer to focus on.
About how I create my artwork:
Rather than traditional forms of art such as painting or photography, I use a computer to create my images., It's called 3D Rendering and works like so: I make a scene by sculpting and arranging digital models in a virtual 3D space., After stipulating lighting and atmospheric effects, I have the computer create a simulated environment from which I take a virtual snap shot of the scene. Then, using image editing software and something more akin to traditional painting techniques (via a Wacom tablet), I go over the work adjusting colors, adding brushwork, painting in details, etc. to produce the final image. Software I use includes: Sculptris ZBrush, Blender3d, Vue, Daz Studio, and GIMP.
Thanks for looking!
