A third sampling of behind-the-scenes naval illustrations!
Our earlier selections of Jeff Bevan's naval artwork (you can
see these previously unpublished pieces here and here)
explained how the Commando staff would ask Jeff to put his
expertise in naval matters to good use, providing artwork for other
artists to reference when illustrating sea-faring Commando
This third exclusive collection of pieces - never before shown
to the public - showcases some more of Jeff's detailed and
A detailed illustration of a British Steam Coaster of the early part of the 20th Century, complete with figures for scale, and a cutaway diagram of the layout of the craft's interior.
Two clearly labelled views from the front and side - again with stick figures for scale - plus a partial third view from the rear, giving all the detail an artist would need.
Side and top views of a German Destroyer - although the various parts of the vessel are unlabelled, there is still a great deal of detail in this ink drawing.
These final two pencil drawings are part of the same page of artwork - this section showing a Trawler's Navigation Bridge and equipment.
The second section of the Trawler artwork - the interior of the Wheelhouse, with an added diagram detailing instructions on the telegraph.
