The was a group project in my illustration class. Each group picked a movie that my teacher wrote on a piece of paper out of a hat. Each member of the group had to do one panel of production art and be graded as a group. He was grading on of course the illustration, but also consistency among the group.
the movie we drew from the hat was The Maltese Falcon (humphrey bogart murder mystery if you don't know what it is). My panel was a shot that we all felt should have been in the film but wasn't (we were allowed to do stuff like that).
we had someone in our group who half-assed it and sabotaged our grade, so overall we got a B+. so frustrating.
that is a great painting........ shame you guys only got a B+.
The mood of the piece is good, and I like that you created the sort of on-location esatablishing shot that is rare in 40's studio pictures. Something is odd about the perspective,though.

thanks, michaelmeina. it is a shame... but that's what you get when you do group projects and are forced to work with people who don't give a sh*t.
elwell: thanks... that's exactly why we put that shot in, and i'm glad i got the mood about right (we were keeping it all kinda dark and creepy. noir meets sleepy hollow). you're right about the perspective, but i can't figure out why. i've reworked bits and pieces to try and fix it, but i guess not *shrug*. i've gotten that comment from a few other people, too. i probably won't rework it any more, but i'll try harder to keep on track with my perspective next time.

looks nice, only perspective looks off. Maybe you should lower the back half of the ship.
"FAIL, FAIL AGAIN, FAIL BETTER"
It's the front of the ship that's off the most. Especially the left side. The hull tapers out and widens toward the top, but the text is leaning inwards. The bow lights are also unevenly placed. Count the bars on the railing, and you'll see the starboard light is placed under the 3rd bar, and the port light is placed under the 12th bar. There are other things too, but if you start looking you'll notice. The rest of the piece looks great, but since the focus is on the front of the ship, I would say that's why the perspective problems become so evident.
