Steering the ship of state by PeteAmachree Steering the ship of state by PeteAmachree
I've recently been watching Empire of the Seas on the BBC. A fantastic series about the history of the British navy, from Tudor times to the present day. This image was inspired by the episode that focused on the 18th century, and Britain's many wars with France and Spain.

So here we have Admiral George Anson outlining his grand strategy with senior naval commanders at navy HQ in Greenwich.

Incredible lighting! I love the sense of scale in this, it's very intimidating.:D Nice use of warm colors too, it adds to the tense atmosphere.

I'm curious, what size and resolution do you paint these on?

Lighting's brilliant. Love the bookshelves in the background. Like the paintings up at the top left.

What a fantastic image, there is almost a steampunk feeling to it, even if that is not at all what you were going for... I imagine drawing that big globe was not easy! It looks amazing though! In the show did they really have a big globe all lit up like that??? Craziness :icongwahplz:

I like the loose painterly touches. Composition is a bit too centered for my taste. I enjoy the warm lighting but it could use some complementary shadow tones, more purple for example. Great quality work tho.
