  1. A Period Ship's Manifest

    Hello, everyone! So after much research and looking over this forum, I have been unable to find an example of a complete period manifest, circa 1720. Everything I try to pursue ends up being a list of names but what I am searching for is an accurate account of what cargo a ship of the period might have on board. Both for goods of business and crew rations [apologies if the latter is called something different]. I am writing about multiple types of vessels; a royal navy 6th rate frigate with a complement of 149 and equipped in a warlike fashion, an English sugar merchant sloop with a compliment of 80, a pirate brig with a complement of 163, and a pirate sloop-of-war with a complement of 127. The manifests don't need to be as specific as I have listed but close would be phenomenal. Of course any books or references are greatly appreciated, even to just give me a nudge in the right direction.
  2. The Hunt

    From the album Pirate Art

    I had a request from my biggest fan at the time to do a chase scene of a pirate pursuing a merchantman, this is what I came up with.
  3. A Merchant captain

    From the album Realistic pirate art

    He is a merchant captain with tricorn hat, two waistcoats (well just a little error... but he can have two for cold weather or something), neck cloth, breeches, fine socks and shoes. While he is a gentleman he has his own hair or a small form of wig. He has a light gentleman gear so he is not wearing the justacorps coat or a huge feathered hat. He is holding a telescope based on late 17th century and early 18th century telescopes like http://collections.r...ects/43703.html , http://collections.r...ects/43727.html and http://collections.r...ects/43735.html
