:pir-oh:
Awesome, it seems that the merchant ship has weather gauge  :pir-oh3:
What a spectacular battle, I love that first picture with the lighting. Ever since I saw SlyOwl's entry I've been considering making such battle scene too, Now I am completely convinced,
A ship just looks so cool when engaged in battle.
Putting the ships under an angle really adds to the lively aspect like there really is wind. It most have been a lot of work to get the water-scape right  :pir_wacko:

wow amazing ships. I kind of fall in love with this kind of action scenes. They seem so much more difficult to build that 'just' a ship (not saying that building a ship is easy).
It looks so much alive, like it is a snapshot of a real battle. The heel of the ship looks real, like it truly is caused by the wind. The smoke and fire. the white wash around the ships.

I hope to see more of the brick built hull of the pirate ship! It's a very dynamic scene, well done! I especially like the technique used for the fire coming from the cannon of the pirate sloop.

I love this! What a great capture of a moment in time. Everything from the high seas, to the cannon blasts, to the burning wound on the larboard side of the brig looks great; like it’s still in motion. I really like that neat little sloop and the man-overboard, stage center, with his arms inverted as to hold on to drift wood. I rarely comment on scenes or vignettes, but this one really impressed me. It took a few times through your 360 video to notice, the slops mast is going by the board. What were they thinking engaging a man-of-war like that, silly pirates? Thanks for sharing!
