    EOW 117 Napoleonic Naval Battle--- combined CHOW/EOW

    117 Napoleonic Naval Battle CHOW crossover


    Brief:

    Marine Battle in the time of the Napoleonic wars,
    required elements

    Battle,
    Ships
    Ocean

    possible reference Materials include: Hornblower novels (Forrester_ Captain and Commander or all the novels of Patrick O Brian.

    The ships should be researched. and any one who makes the flag on the mast fly the wrong way will be summarily eliminated from polling.

    Fantasy elements are acceptable as long as the time period is clear. Your entry can be combined with your CHOW entry, in that if you can include the character as part of the scene that will be fine. you All Chow and Eow rules still Apply.

    B]TWO WEEK EOW/CHOW[/B]

    For the next two weeks we're running a cross over with CHOW, featuring a brave naval hero in an epic sea battle.

    You have three options with this contest:

    a) Do a more illustrative piece and combine chow & eow and meet the requirements for both contests in one image (a battle on a quarter deck, for example)

    b) do two illustrations seperately, one with a naval battle, and one just with the hero,
    CHOW link here http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...d.php?t=166407

    or c) only do one of the two - you don't really need to do both, but it'll be more fun!

    DUE August31st 2009 yes you get 2 weeks

    and we're off again!

    ladies and gentlemen of EOW, this is an exciting opportunity to do some research and work out imagined scenes in an historical time period. the point is to make something with in these parameters, not to stretch the boundaries until they no longer are recognizable. When I say that one of the requirements it to follow the brief..I mean it.

    Excellent!

    Just EOW for me though. Too many ships to paint, no time for heroes.

    Ehhh... which way is the wrong way for flags to point then?

    What about an angelic navy? kept with the ships and outfits of the time period but made to look "holy" and maybe sailing a top the edge of a rolling storm front? Or battling a demonic presence a top a hurricane. whould that be acceptable?

    nope
    read the brief. "ocean"

    I think you aren't getting the point. research and time period. don't make it more complicated than it is.
    that is a very cool idea, but not for this challenge. you should do it as aporfolio piece could be very dramatic

    This could fit in nicely as a study for an oil painting I am supposed to be doing.

    Nice cross-over.

    This seems intimidating and intriguing at the same time. On a side note, there's this really great documentary of Napoleon from PBS I saw recently. Doesn't have many naval scenes, but could help the creative juices to flow. I'll see what I can come up with.

    First off this is a post in attempts to be helpful. And I hope it isn't taken in bad form, as I've really just started posting in the last week. In fact if it is, please feel free to delete this post.

    But,the wind filling the sails does not necessarily make a ships flags fly forward. In fact the flag is as likely to be flying straight back, sideways, or even just hang there depending on the actual direction of the wind being caught in the sails, and the amount of drag being place on the flag through forward momentum.

    As a means of showing I'm not completely full of it, and hopefully help with inspiration for any and all who work something up, here's a quick youtube link.

    Again, not trying to be a jerk, and I'm really excited to see what people come up with.

    actually you are correct in all aspects except straight back.unless the ship is in stays and the sails are flapping about dangerpously.

    Hmmm, interesting. Good to know. Only ever seeing sailboats from a distance, I've most likely misjudged the flags as being straight back, when they were actually to one side or the other.
