A commission for a friend who is currently serving in the US Navy.
Not my first time doing military hardware, but this one provided a lot more challenges and lessons learned along the way.
Chosen concept with basic idea
Messing with potential wave height
Quick test with colour and waves
greyscale with a more realistic wave height
Backdrop added and light effects (rain) put in
For some reason I did the detail stage late on....
Added more waves and rain with a contrast in to make it look like a heavy storm.
