Spent entirely too much time on this World of Warships artwork mess.  Now to actually play the game.
DD-505 by PaperArtillery
Fletcher-class DD-505 (fictional), Task Group 16.22, steams northeast at three-quarters in rough seas, 3. May 1943 as part of picket operations leading up to the US counterinvasion of Alaska's southern islands.

Camouflage used on the ship (above the red anti-fouling coating) adheres to US Navy color specifications as of 1943, but is not necessarily historical nor based on any other ship's camouflage pattern that I have seen.  Detail goes as far as draft and waterline markings (bow, stern, and below No. 2 turret), though they may not be visible as anything other than faint white lines, depending on zoom.  The signal flags flying from the halyard aft of the bridge state Whiskey Yankee 5 (sea state/wave height is strength 5, or "rough") and Delta, indicating that the ship is maneuvering with difficulty and to keep distant.

Done as "fanart" or a sort for World of Warships (currently in closed Beta testing).  Mixed media (all digital), about 4 hours plus some editing over the last month or so.
i'm in love with a ghost
just residue of feelings and movements
in that place where i used to walk.

sometimes flickers in the light
incandescent and leaving a stain when
i close my eyes
seem like some demented morse code for
remember, or hope.

the smoke from this lantern i light
just seems to be something in my eye,
making an ocean settle at
the bottom of my vision,
and a wreck one or both of us
scuttled, saying to the deep hell

with this ship,

full of things that
could have should have
gone right,

instead of the sideways like we sometimes
decide to be to escape, looking
through this mirror
on a years-long
delay through a haze of sepia

glowing like embers underneath
until the water rushes in

to be fair.
