Entirely done in UltraFractal 5.04. Yet another illustration for a book "Pirates 2" from the Russian Sci-Fi series "Ethnogenez"

I am reminded by the shear violence and beauty of the sea, the stoic nature of those's whose living depends on it and the bravery of those who strive to rescue in dire moments. Thank you

Where's the Flying Dutchman?
Other than that, good job on the ship and the stormy water.
You bested me on the water.
btw, the reason i asked the question is because the Cape is actually where the Dutchman is said to haunt during storms like this one.

I've made many ghost ships, however I avoid to make directly the "Flying Dutchman" considering it too trivial. In another work a deviant recognized a ghost ship from Chile - the "Caleuche" and this is how I like it, people to have freedom for imaginative interpretation. This exactly work is an illustration for a book and there are other ships there. "Cape of Good Hope" is known best for the extremely bad weather and so it is in the book, and in my work.

Oh well that's cool.
I'll have to look for the one with the "Caleuche".
Your ships are good from looking at the Black Pearl.

Probably this one - [link]. However I didn't have a purpose to make "Caleuche", some deviant thought it is in a comment.

Ju looked a it, does look like a ghost ship, but I think the Caleuche was described as a different type of ship according to eyewitnesses, but anyways, GOOD JOB, I love it!

Just want to repeat, I do not pretended to make Caleuche or whatever concrete ship. Somebody in the comments told it looks like. When I make a concrete ship, usually I say it in the comment.
