ya i know but i am adding elements one by one and getting less time to work. And what do you mean by "entrance is boring"?, meaning there should be something like PKD's paintover?

The wall itself is boring. Flying bridges look like an interesting idea. By the way, I think the idea and the general approach is interesting, and there is a mood in it, I just pick the parts which are most important I see.

thanks but i think only the ships need to be more textured. thank you all.

Hey man,

The piece is really coming along, nice work so far.

As far as the ships go, the planking would follow the curve of the ship, not travel straight as you show now. Medieval ships did not carry cannons, so there would be no gunports.

I know your going for a fantasy look, but it might help to make the sails on the ships square. I would maybe imagine that if the ships were docked, they would just furl the sails. The triangular sails you see sometimes face front to back between the mast, and are not attached to yards facing forwards.

I would make the base texture an unpainted wood, and then add color around the top of the hull. The stern would also have lots of decoration on it. They could also have large colourful banners on the tops of the mast.

render of ships

made two ships. comments please.

Hey man,

Here is a quick paint up that shows the major rigging. It would help to make the shrouds thicker, and the ratlines thinner. Also, try adding a few stays, and moving your crows nest down to the middle of the mast.

I think it might look better if you added a bit of color. When the sails are furled, they would be tied up to the yard, not lowered down. The stern (back) of the ship would also be squared off.

well here's final image.

its the final image with color-correction n glow in photoshop but still not accepted. is something more to be done?

Old 11 November 2012   #29
Hey man,

There's a lot more you could do with the image. It just a matter of how much time you want to invest in it.

Do you have any links to images that your using as reference or inspiration?

Old 11 November 2012   #30

i dont have reference because i was just making what i had in mind, but a reference is and that's lord of the rings. actually something like the scene from fellowship of the ring when the fellowship are on the boats and on river and going through argonath(the two giant statues) but i dont want the statues because it would look like i copied the scene.
