A quick setup and slow render (2-3 hours, forgot to take note) in Vue7. Basically just scaled the water up and then down in the Y-axis, slapped a water material on it and selected a fitting atmosphere.
This is an interpretation of the "calm" logbook entry. Should probably make some adjustments on the sails to make them sag due to the missing wind.

Looking forward to seeing entries in this thread - "happy sailing" everyone

Hi everybody,

i am watching this forum for a long time, but never had the time to take part. With this challenge i want try to find some hours, because i like sailing ships.
I want to try a rendering with iray.
So this will be fun i think.
Here is my first setup. I choosed the light yellow color to show my idea of the first log entry.
A little hint...i will not need a water shader. So more time working on the ship.


Cheers
Andreas

CHRiTTeR: Nice start, hard to give feedback with such a small render, but I understand. If volumetrics are giving you long render times maybe try using particles or faking them in a composite mixed with a depth pass.

Andi2008: Welcome! Good start, your image has a very desert like feel to it, which goes well with the chosen theme. Looking forward to seeing some materials.

runejw: Looking good! The sky itself has a more dusk feeling to me but, sunsets can have such a large variation in color in a short period of time. Here's a couple reference images for you

Notice how the water isn't reflecting the orange in the sky very much. It's much more of a deeper blue. At the same time the sun has a very strong reflection. You may have to overbrighten the sun to get that kind of a reflection.
