Nope. And it isn't Shipbucket, where did you get it?

Can't remember where I found it,on the net somewhere.I was looking at my battleships folder and come across it, must have had it for months.Whoever drew it saved it as a JPEG.As I have plans to do Agamenmon I thought it right to ask instead of getting half way through and finding its another members WIP.

That was me a from a couple of years on my second attempt at a shipbucket style. It was all hand drawn with MS paint.
I decided to redo it from scratch, but I got busy. Here is my second attempt at it.

Honestly, I think your'e better off starting from scratch rather than trying to improve that drawing, since you're going to be doing that anyway, and you might as well start with a better reference. Wikipedia actually has a very good one:

In my defense, the resource drawing that I was using, it wasnt that good, but it was my second attempt at a shipbucket style and it was the first large ship that I drew.
I agree with the Klag, start over thats why I did it.

Fascinating, Early Colosseum, in fact probably the earliest, and it still looks better than a lot of what gets posted now (by others ;) ) But yes, better to begin afresh; but be careful when using the Andrew Arthur drawing as its very easy to simply scale it down and loose your own creativity; that's one reason why some folk don't use these drawings. And good luck with this project, its good to see these old ships getting done. :)
