Vignettes 221C

I decided to enter the JRCIII anyway.
Obviously I was inspired by SlyOwl and Legonardo their entries  :pir-grin:
I just decided to make the merchant ship a little bit bigger  :pir-devil:

A pirate cutter sneaked up on the east indiaman and pirates attempt to board the ship.
The merchant ship was based on the Black pearl for a great part, it actually features a full interior (hold included) but I intend to redo a great part of the ship so until then no interior pictures  :jollyroger:

That water bassin wasn't exactly my best Idea really  :pirate_sad2: .

The water from top gets somewhat weird but this photo is fantastic Posted Image:

Nice battle scene Posted Image

A ship is floating in the harbour now,

The wind is hovering o'er the mountain's brow;

There is a path on the sea's azure floor,

No keel has ever ploughed that path before

(Percy Bysshe Shelley)

When I saw the rear of the smaller ship I was like:

The medieval bow really finished the rear of the ship !

The custom hull looks spectacular. I love how you mixed the hull with Greenhair's frigate technique.  :pir-wub:
I can't wait to see the interior!
