This has been a favorite among my deviantart friends and personally is one of my favorite subjects. This is my second rendition of the IJN Yamato battleship. Hopefully, I have captured the power and dynamics of this battleship. Also I think about the dedications of the engineering and shipyard workforce that built this mighty ship. I have been working on this project for several weeks. I never could get the BG I wanted. Finally, I decided on the blue/green/grey tones for final presentation. Also, check out my 1st Yamato work.
The IJN Yamato, named after the ancient Japanese Yamato Province, was the lead ship of the Yamato class of battleships that served with the Imperial Japanese Navy during World War II. She and her sister ship, Musashi, were the heaviest and most powerfully armed battleships ever constructed, displacing 72,800 tonnes at full load and armed with nine 46 cm (18.1 inch) main guns. Neither ship survived the war.
