A very lovely ship. So, what does his pirate flag look like?

I have yet to design his proper flag. I'm thinking of possibly holding a competition for fun, to see what people can come up with. =)

I'd imagine it would be more happy than traditional pirate flags would look like. He doesn't seem to be the type to mercilessly slaughter for fun and profit.

God, this is a lot of work. It's wonderful that you post everything here on dA so we can see what you're up to, as a lot of us are also getting into animation. For your sake, I hope this is for a background and you don't have to make the ship move! XD

This is a BEAUTIFUL ship. I absolutely love shipping from this period and I love your design. I especially like how the French 'Fleur-de-Lise' flag is emblazoned on the side of the sails. Gives a lot more character to the ship than if the whole sail was a flag or white. (It also lends to Louis's unconventional nature)

I come forth once more bearing historical reference..well sorta. There are some Osprey books that you might want to look into on this subject. Not exactly the period I recall you planning on, but probably better than nothing. Also don't know how easily one can get a hold of these where you are, but for historical reference, they are the best go-to publishers. Ah, if only you were doing Napoleonic, I could just throw my Dad at you, he has lectured on the ships of that era.

Oh they are. Especially for military/naval reference, which is their main focus. I really like some of their books about ancients because they also include some of the non-military aspects for the sake of better understanding. Also doesn't hurt that one of my favorite artists (Angus McBride) did a number of their books.

Frankly, there ain't nobody out there who knows anything about drawing sailing ships. Well, that's an exaggeration (since I do!) but old sailing ships are preposterously complicated machines. Sailing is one of those subjects that people think they understand intuitively because it looks simple, but ... they don't. The good thing is, since nobody knows anything about old sailing ships, you can get away with a lot. I can tell you this from experience. I can also tell you from experience that if you do decide to get even halfway knowledgeable about them, it's going to eventually make you cringe at most paintings of ships and every ship in a movie for you, ever, except maybe in Master and Commander. If you need references, by the way, I'd suggest trying to lay hands on a stack of WoodenBoat magazines. It wouldn't cover a ship from this era, but they're chock full of gorgeous photos and references galore. Another very good reference tool would be models -- the good wooden kinds you see in museums, not the ones you get at hobby lobby for your mantel -- it just so happens that you can find PDF manuals of some of those models for free online. (Google "rattlesnake ship model manual" and one should pop up first thing for you).

Good lord! That was a frighteningly detailed manual! Thanks very much for the feedback. I love and loathe ships all at the same time, their construction, shapes, and all that rigging baffle me! I'll definitely keep all your suggestions in mind when I revise this more in future.

kiolia Featured By Owner Nov 30, 2012
Glad it was helpful! The construction and rigging actually start to make sense when you get a chance to dig into them a little. At first, though, it all looks like a big blooie because there are so many pieces or "systems" packed in with each other. Square-rigged ships were extremely high-tech for their time!

Are you certain that the word you weren't looking for is "Hippogriff" for the figure-head? The Hippocampus is a portion of the brain.

This is a great job. But I think the perspective on the back part of the ship is a little wierd. It looks a little bit forced/twisted to take that position. I guess you wanted to show certain details and twisted the ships back-end.

besides the fleur-de-lis you'd think it's HRE from afar.

must be the shadows on the blue.
