"Of Ships and the Sea"
Added on: Mon May 07 2001
Page: 1 2 4 5 6 

I wanted to make all the stays and shrouds in the right place and position therefore I took the blueprints into serious consideration. I used renderable splines with black textures.

Finally I made the small details on the model, for example: the rivets on the rudder, cannons, lids
upon the gunports, anchor cables and catheads, and so on....

There are three different ships in the final picture, the other two were made by modifying the Vasa ship model. The ships in the background are more damaged with torn sails and broken masts, and the bigger ship on the left side has one more cannon row and a new bonaventure mast and some differences on the head side. (It has now 106 cannon.)

I always tried to decrease the face number, but unfortunately my effort was useless :) , and the face number grown up to 300.000. It doesn't look too much, but in the final picture there are 4 frigates.

Some pictures of the models rendered with Brazil, the brand new global illumination renderer.
