Re: Gourock

A little different for you, but no less excellent. Love the broad compositional sweep.

Re: Gourock

An amazing technical feat if you consider all the tiny masts done so well. Much to look at here! Looks great.

In actual fact, the smaller they are, the easier they become. A horizontal line, and you have a hull. A shorter one on top, you have the upper works. A dot for the Bridge. A squat vertical, you have the funnel. Masts usually 2 thin vertical lines, but you can have more.6
I played with this using mainly silhouettes and minimum detail. No sea, just foam crests. I also wanted Wall to Wall Ships.!
