So after looking over Jordan previous advice I have come up with some different concepts. 3 hours later - please let this be alright.
I redid this with the mind set that this is my style - it cannot be interpreted from anyone else. I looked at real ships, their keels, their masts and rigging to create this new set. I'm sure there is many things I could do if given the time but I wont be able to do two more images in time for Thursday's submission if I spend any more time on this. So that being said the only tweaking I might do is colour balance and hue/saturation, sizing it, and adding a little more tone definition before the final submit.
