Help with a junk ship
Gah so this is just a total mess. I don't understand ships at all. I'm pretty sure at least 100% of this is wrong especially the back half. Hard critique with guidelines and stuff would do me wonders. Also if anyone can explain things further or refer a book with details on rigging, I implore you. D:

You should keep in minds that Oriental ships rarely have that sort of European front (in fact the whole design is quite different). Another thing to consider is that most ships will guide their hull shape by one set of curving lines, at least externally, so the way it levels out at the back shouldn't really happen. Use more reference, there's lots of it-
Also, I would recommend finding a more interesting angle/perspective before you get too far into the rendering.

Here is also a link to a highly detailed model kit of a junk that may provide good reference- http://www.modelexpo-online.com/cgi-...TRAN85=N&GENP=
Also, personally I would sketch the ship repeatedly on paper before going digital.

Thanks guys for the advice. Though I want to get all the specifics down pat before I even attempt angles.

Resketched the whole thing. I don't think I fully get the "one set of curving lines" concept. D:

Nice, looks a lot more natural now.
