I was looking at the image for the Savannah and noticed that it was too deep in the hull compared to her length, so using her booklet of plans that is posted online, I redid the artwork.

Please feel free to give feedback and suggestions for improvement.

Quite nice, although I cannot quite follow the way you shaded her.....
The ship also seems to be not in the right spot on the template :P

I'm not quite sure what you're referring to here. I used the sheer plan for the hull for the shading...

The contrast for the white shading doesn't really pop, but is subtle.

Yep, was about four pixels low. Here is that corrected.

With shading, see shipbucket style guide on the main page. But generally we do not use light shade underwater and we draw as the light come frome above-front and not directly from the front.

See also how we other shad shiphull

I think I see what you did. It looks like you took and shaded everything but the hull that was about four feet from the maximum width - which is a close match to the shading on the original drawing.

From what I remember, the hull shape on NS Savannah is broadly similar to the hull shape on American Racer

What I did here was I followed the idea that everything that is more vertical than horizontal is not shaded while areas that are more horizontal than vertical, are shaded (ie the delineation is made at 45°; a combination of 30° and 60° is also used in some drawings). I can try and hack out some of what I think the shading curves would be if you'd like.

As for placement, again I'd direct you to the above drawing of American Racer, and remember that on the full height templates the ship's waterline, not keel is on the marked line. If the ship's draft would result in the hull being cut off, the template can be extended down to account for this.
