@Hood: Thanks so much!They take a little while. Titanic took about 5-6 weeks while other smaller liners are usually about 2-3 weeks each. Most of it is spent researching and photo-gathering though since blueprints can be quite hard to come by!
@BB1987 You are very kind
@emperor_andreas Thankyou mate and it is very nice to feel welcome!
@Colosseum I started off in MS Paint and slowly upgraded the 'tasks' I would complete. To give you an example, a 2012 profile of Titanic started as all-pixel:
Then I experimented with shading the drawing using photoshop:
Now I just do everything in photoshop! If I can make some suggestions, use a brush with 100% hardness and a pixel size of 1 or 2 for the edge outlines.
