I see some good work here. I like the perspective of this one. My only crits go on this:

- sky to blurred for me
- not sure about the purple in the near of the ship
- what does this oil rig do in the background? the shot looks like on the open sea

If you got time a bit more details on the foreground water will fit better I guess.

Keep it up.

Thanks for the comments

I agree the rig is a bit shabby but it is in open sea's. I added it as an afterthought.
Sky needs work yeah, but i'm actually a 3D guy there, so i had to do this over a few lunchtimes.

Trying to convince them that i can do this stuff as well so i can secretely do stuff for my folio at work. :lol:

cheers

Looking cool! Can I tell you what would look good? The ships shadow is black and the light is coming from the moon, the foreground should be taken up mostly by the ships cast shadow with only some glistening reflections on the wave tops. This would add to the mood and draw you in to the paininting as well as intergrating the sea and the boat. In the shade of the darkest bits of sea, it should be at least as dark as the shade of the boat. The moons position on the right gives you a perfect oportunity to add its reflection in the water and its ambient glow could 'frame' the ship. I will post what I mean if you want.

The paintover expresses some points but the shadow at night wouldn't be that bold, pretty much everything is in shadow. And the highlights would be less apparent on a intense foamy water then a reflective glass like surface. The foam would break it up more.

I think some subtle shadow and specular highlights would be a great addition. To be realistic though the colors seem too vibrant for real world photgraphy.

also if you do this the composition is a little on the right side. Changing the oil rig to the left may help it. The colours are a bit bright Riktor is right. this sounds like we are going the hack on what is a great piece. Looks great, just mood tweaks.
