another Bigmouth work-in-progress (WIP)

This is a WIP for one of the six illustrations for my uni project on the story 'The Blazing World' written by Margaret Cavendish in 1666.

From page 41:
"The Fish-men were to carry the Fire-stones in cases of Diamonds (for the Diamonds in the Blazing World are in splendor so far beyond the Diamonds of this World, as Peble-stones are to the best of this Worlds Diamonds) and to uncase or uncover those Fire-stones no sooner but when they were just under the Enemies Ships, or close at their sides, and then to wet them, and set their Ships on fire..."
