There's no such thing as "nothing left to draw" If you can down 10 pints and draw, you're doing alright by my standards

Fantastic Work!!

the few tweaks you've made in the 2nd edition are definitely worth it - well done!


Cheers

Lovely work.
I agree the diver's lines probably need tweaking to follow the hull curvature and perhaps darker shade of white too.

Nice work! the divers lines are a pattern on the hull so she is more recognisable?

I personally would go for a more subdued (pink) colour for the white lines. Why? because the lines are probably less then half a foot wide, so less then a pixel, so from our viewpoint they would look half white, half red, so pink. This would also increase the further towards the keel they are due to the roundness of the hull, near the keel they would look a lot narrower then the ones near the waterline. Maybe worth experimenting?

Also, you can update the topic title by editing the title of the first post ;)

Divers' lines are basically just to help divers identify underwater parts of the ship easily in poor visibility - they're painted on the hull at regular spacings / depths to help divers find the thing they're looking for on a bigger ship, I think.

Anyway, having tried a few times to get them right I think they might be just beyond my abilities to portray correctly :lol:
