I LOVE SHIPS!!!!!! I wanted to join the navy when I was younger (then I learned we didn't use battleships v.v) Great pic I love the ornate look of the ships it just kind of adds to...well the bad assery of it
I'm just in awe!! Staggering detail yet great clarity of design. You balance all that noodly structure with great freshness and gesture. If I tried a scene like this it would become way to stiff. I'm beyond impressed!
Thanks! The water wasn´t that difficult but it turned out to look a bit shallow. Maybe I should have made higher and more translucent waves. Also the middle ship could have been pushed back a bit via less saturation/contrast.
I am trying to imagine how you would make the waves more 'translucent'. It's difficult for me to even fathom. I can imagine trying it, but it seems SO HARD to imply 'translucency' in water without going all the way and showing what's in the water. I should study more OTL
It's really helpful to see you talk about your pieces this way. You have no idea how much I appreciate it.
