The Pequod

I had a ton of fun designing and painting this one (you could probably tell haha).
This is my take on Ahab's ill-fated whaling ship, the Pequod, and I did the best that I could to be faithful to the book's description. I'll post process sketches as soon as I can get a hold of a scanner. Meanwhile, enjoy :)



*Edit: And some of Ahab's harpoons

I love the caricature of the design!
I'd like to see a character on board for scale purposes though.

just a thought.

@Ken- Thanks man! Really appreciate it coming from you :) Had a ton of fun painting this. Mind you, I used to build model ships when I was younger

@Logan- Ya.. Totally forgot that, but I'll keep it in mind for the next design

@Melissa, Gabby, Isaac, Tooninator- Thanks you guys!! :)

@Christian- Lately I've had some inspiration that motivated me to crank out some work ;)
