A timeless naval chase

I have a big soft spot for triremes, more so than for other historical ships. This microscale scene by Micah Beideman, despite its questionable historical and engineering implications, delivers on many levels. Both the ships are done well, with a good solution for the sails, and the trireme’s oars look quite convincing. While simple, the overall scene is very immersive, with the clouds adding a lot to the effect.

    In all fairness, war galleys were used alongside sailing ships for quite a substantial period.
