BTNAirshipRemake

Submitted by AbstractCreativity
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
I was inspired by the NE Airship model here at THW, so I decided to make an airship icon. :] Not supposed to fit with the airship model.

Not the best icon ever made, bit I thought I'd upload it anywas as it could be useful.

100% freehand, made with Corel Painter Essentials

**UPDATE**

Rather than improving the lacking bits of the icon, I remade the entire thing. ...Well, and then I pasted over the clouds from the old version, as I was really satisfied with them.
Now you see the entire ship, and it has received more detail and shading/highlights.
(Notice the winged fish on the sail :D)

UPDATE 2: Higher contrast on clouds and sail.

    If you don't have time, update it when you're back from Riga.

    Hehe ty... :) It's supposed to look a bit cartoonish ^^

    It's a tad hard to see exactly what it is, so here's the full pic for a closer look:
    + Here's an area of usage, and proof it works in-game as well:

    When looking on it like an icon not a wip, it looks like a ship with some white bags on the left corner of it. (Of ship, not picture) Maybe you could make clouds look more realistic and put some over the ship in the left bottom corner?

    This would take away the cartoonish feeling it has. I don't think there's much to be changed on it, maybe give the clouds a better shape, if people think it doens't look good now.
