Really? If I remember well, I haven't even thought about the mood of the picture. I just drew the piece of steel and some clouds behind it. It's strange, isn't it?

You only draw ships that were existed or newer weres too which only existed in the design stage?

For the present I draw only formerly existed ships. I think it's more interesting, and somebody some day can use them as illustrations for their books or articles about naval history. Also, I usually use plastic models which help me to draw. And not a single model manufacturer produces models of ships that never built. So it will be difficult for me to draw such ships.

But if you have some sort of idea, please tell me.

I see.
Well that is not always true as there are models of the A-150 aka Super Yamato or the British N3/G3 designs. But you are right there are few of those. I could provide with drawings and you could use your imagination and the experience you gathered.

But what I have in mind now is a battleship Franco wanted for the Spanish Armada. Essentially a repeat of the Italian Littorio's but with removed secondary triple turrets and twin 120mm Spanish AA guns instead of the Italian singel 90mm ones. I've made a line drawing of it as how it could looked like in my opinion:
