I have to agree with the guy below me. Great piece of art. Well done with nice coloring and blending. Keep it up.

I picture him be all like: man, I wish I bought that GPS.
no but seriously, Great pice of art man.

Reminds me of something I saw in Europe

Why do English pubs always feature these drab paintings? Not to say your is that drab but it does pose a nice transition from the darkness/lightness theme.

Like in a "Sea of hopelessness - there exists a small glimmer of light" sorta theme. It's sort of a means to encourage old salts to tell their tall tales.

Was your grandfather an expert fisherman? Was this based on an actual expierence?

It's a bit small, even if I click it. Mind re-uploading a larger version so that I may see the details? Cause I'm sure you worked hard on this.

My grandfather wasn't ever an expert fisherman, but he's always enjoyed reading books about sailing and exploration, and he's done quite a lot of traveling himself.

Anyhow, I didn't use any reference for this, but it seems like there are quite a few paintings of ships at sea with this kind of setup, so it was the first thing that came to mind. I'm not sure if it's because of the theme itself, or just because this kind of effect is pretty easy to do.

As for the size, unfortunately that's the full image. I didn't have much time to do this. (only about 3 hours)

Thanks for the review.
