Latest Update: Work In Progress: scene test with all large pieces (

The idea is a bunch of races journeying on this sail-less boat which is strapped to the back of an (of course) sentient whale. They hit shallower water (maybe fleeing from something) and are tug boated by other animals to an ape jungle city.

Towards the left there is a throne type deal with what is presumed to be the ape king. I plan on experimenting with the angle (not a problem since it will be in 3D) and having a lot of interesting creatures in the crowd and on the boat.

working out the basic whale shape from the concept and relative scale that the attached ship will be. Plan on making the whate have some character since now he's pretty plain and standard.

kind of behind but should have a lot of time this week and weekend to work more on it. messing with ocean and fractal shaders since i wanted to get a feel for the environment. going to change the ugly mess on the whale's back and sculpt him further
