Drawing referenced from a model ship built by my father.
The "Santisima Madre" (translation: Most Holy Mother) was a Spanish galleon in the late 1600's... other than it going down in a storm, there's very little information on it. The ship's figurehead is of an eagle and the ship is decorated with many other eagles as well as images of Mary and cherubs. Heavily armed.
Like most of my art... this picture was heavily inspired by tattoo culture... though I wanted something that felt a bit more "traditional" than my usual stuff.
