Okay, I've been getting up my courage to draw this for a while, so here it is: one of the most beautiful liners ever, Norddeutscher Lloyd's SS Bremen of 1928. She captured the Blue Riband from the RMS Mauretania on her maiden west and eastbound voyages from Bremerhaven to New York and back at average speeds of 27.83 knots and 27.91 knots, respectively.

Only thing is you forgot her name on the bow. Other than that, wunderbar! Are you planning other versions of her?

Thanks! I'll add her name soon. I knew I would forget something small.
I think I'll do a version with her heightened funnels (they added 5 meters since smoke was disturbing the lounging passengers on the upper decks).

Any plans to do her sister Europa / Liberte?

SS Bremen after her funnels were heightened by 5 meters.

SS Europa. Note the changes to the forward superstructure.

Tsd, just a suggestion. since you've depicted Bremen with both original and heightened funnels, what about adding, between parenthesis, the year the drawing depicts the ship?
Like: "Germany, SS Bremen (19XX)"

Excellent subject, and well executed. Well done sir!
Two remarks though
One is the flag, which is totally wrong. The German flag you have is the post war one. The pre-war (before the Nazi regime) was a black white and red flag.
Second concerns the ship itself. Your rudder is based upon an inaccurate image and it also affects the propellers which you had drawn.
