Default Queen Mary's Revenge - 07-07-2010, 10:45 AM

This a matte painting I am working on. The source file is from Topsail Sound, which is on the coast of North Carolina.

Topsail Island got it's name from the pirate days. Ships, including Blackbeard's 'The Queen Mary's Revenge,' would slip into the shallow waters and run their ships aground to clean off the barnacles. Other times they would just go back into the shallow waters to hide from authorities.

When the ships were back in the sound and inlet all you could see was the top sail. Hence the name, 'Topsail Island.'

This work is just a representation of that time period - from the point of view looking down the sound.

I am trying to get this as photo real as possible. Any critques in that direction would be greatly appreciated. That being said, I know the moon is huge. I was really trying to make the moon a big over the top just for the feel.

The original source photo is below.
