Show Your Artwork Thread!
A thread for all Artists on RAT to show their artwork. All artwork must be historical in nature, although it does not have to pertain to Ancient Rome and all historical eras will be allowed.

For the sake of simplicity, we will presume anything prior to 1900 is "historical."

No inappropriate content or content promoting illegal activities please. It will be deleted and moderator action will be taken.
I guess I am not clear on this thread... Any type of artwork? Or must it be concerning Rome? JUst curious... I am a Historical Maritime artist but have no works of ancient type...

I bolded the original post.

Staying on topic, here's an old drawing of mine, of a map of europe. Did this entirely by hand, I copied it but I did not trace it.

Now I can almost do it from memory but I am out of practice.

Around the middle of the fourth century, legionaries were issued a new style of armor combining the lorica segmentata with the muscled cuirass. Expansion of this style of armor with additional pieces eventually gave rise to the full plate c. AD 500, illustrated in such documentaries as Excalibur (1981). This illustration shows a typical legionary of c. 400.

I ride the winds of fate
Prepared to go where my heart belongs,
Back to the past again.

Here are a few of my works. "Fare Thee Well" and "Farewell" are two deep relief carvings that I was commissioned to do for the 50th Anniversary of the Launching of the S. S. Edmunds Fitzgerald. This is the largest shipwreck in the Great Lakes. At the time of her sinking she was the largest ship on the lakes.

"Fare Thee Well" commemorates the Maiden Voyage in June of 1958

"Farewell" depicts the final night before she went down in one of the worst storms on Lake Superior on November 10, 1975.

There you will find some of the recent projects.

Friends Good Will "Chekagua Bound" is a privately owned Sloop that was commandeered by British Navy at Fort Mackinac at the Straights of Mackinaw between Lake Michigan and Lake Ontario in the War of 1812. Word never made it to Fort Detroit, Fort Mackinac and Fort Dearborn (In Chicago) On the maps of the War of 1812 Chicago is spelled "Chekagua" Form the American Indians original name meaning "Onion" or "Garlic".

The British confiscated the vessel, cargo, and crew, renaming her Little Belt. She was armed, taken into service, and fought with the Royal Navy until September of 1813, when she was recaptured by United States Commodore Oliver Perry at the Battle of Lake Erie. Within an hour after the great guns fell silent, Commodore Perry mentioned her in his now famous dispatch, "We have met the enemy and they are ours: Two Ships, two brigs, one schooner and one sloop." That sloop was Friends Good Will.

This Piece was unveiled at the Michigan Maritime Museum in South Haven, Michigan. 2013 is the Bicentennial year for the Battle of Lake Erie.

A small "Quick Carving" of a Fireplace Billows.

I am currently working on Sword handle parts in various types of wood, bone and Faux Ivory. I have a company that I am currently working with that may reproduce these pieces for Suppliers. I am a Master Woodcarver and can be commissioned for just about anything. My customers are treated with the utmost respect and are totally involved with the projects I create for them.

Most of my works are Museum Pieces and are unveiled in Museums across the Great Lakes in the United States and Canada. I have been highly rewarded for my works. They appear in Museums, Books, Magazines, Television Documentaries, TV News Casts, etc.

The Sword parts I am working on presently, will be featured in an up coming Carving Magazine. Hope you like my work... If you need anything... feel free to contact me.

I have been seriously thinking about carving a deep relief carving of something 1St Century A.D. Roman... just haven't decided what... YET.
Some awesome stuff patrick!
I love what you've done, Patrick! It's incredible doing water carving wood, so realistic. And the ropes of the boats, is it real rope, or wood also? I love those tiny details.

I like the idea of this thread, I can post here my "romano-fantasy" artwork (pictures from a time where I wasn't shocked by Hollywood movies :razz: ).

Here's the first one, "Casus Belli". It's supposed to be the Dacian Wars, the episode where Dacians could get to the roman fort crossing the frozen Danube. Forget about the girl, of course, she's the part of that "fantasy". But I still dream of telling a realistic story with her (differently dressed, of course).
