    Default Ships from Joan Blaeu's Atlas Major

    While working on my first major map ( http://www.cartographersguild.com/sh...nkissed-World) ), I discovered that my university's library has a rather large volume with selections from 17th century Dutch cartographer Joan Blaeu. As I had already decided I wanted to populate my oceans with ship engravings, I knew I had to have these, and made a number of high resolution scans, which I then converted into gray scale brushes for GIMP. I have uploaded them as high-quality .jpgs so that they can easily be converted back into brushes either for GIMP or for Photoshop. As far as copyright goes, I double checked the front of the book, but didn't see anything, and since the atlas was published in 1662, it is certainly part of the public domain. You can pick and choose between the ships, or download a zip of the whole bundle (Many thanks to maackey for collecting the files in zip)
    Enjoy,
