I've always thought the Type 22s to be homely at best, but this is a delightful rendering. A little bit further from the classical standard, but it's consistently-executed and I have trouble finding much fault. Every detail change is justifiable to me.

Obviously, it is an excellent drawing, and a worthy addition to the archive. My only criticism is that I think the SPS-43 and SPN-6 (?) are a little heavy-handed in their rendering. The SPS-43 especially is an old, crappy drawing, which I feel comfortable saying since it's mine :) Compare to the LSO...

I can't help but shake the feeling that the hull details overwhelm the hull plating to the point it loses a sense of cohesiveness. The resulting effect is more a collection of black pixels sailing in tight formation. Maybe explore some darker shades of gray for at least some of these details?

Beautiful and well-done, although I fear introducing an honest-to-god gradient may burst a blood vessel ;)

It was actually quite hard to score these. 1 to 10 is a wide range and its hard to judge where something falls within that spread. ... So perhaps future contests could have say 1 to 5 as ratings instead? Its just hard to have fine granularity that everyone can be consistent on. I completely agree -...

Obviously an armor belt can't have portholes through it. So what do we see aft, just aft of the aftmost main battery turret? Is that the outer plating of a bulge, not an external armor belt?
