Sea Chart

3 posts in this topic

Started sketching and drawing again, when I was cleaning out the workshop I found an old atlas from the 30's. I used a combo of 2 old printouts of the Caribbean and the map of Cuba in the atlas to make this. It is on heavy paper and I used India ink on the old nib tip pens to ink it.....

Bad pic, I had to use the phone...

OK, got the camera to work:

Wow, pretty good. I've been tryin' to put together a chart book made of maps of the pirate's hunting Grounds. Several of the Caribbean, one or two in Madagascar Waters, and a few others. Little tip though, if you've ever seen maps from that era, they never showed the exact coastline since they weren't as accurate as modern charts. That's why I work from pictures of period maps in my collection of pirate books. And the Ship is a nice touch too.

This is for me and goofing off, I wasnt trying to be period correct on it. That comes later after I get used to nib pens again!! Thanks for the compliments!
