I've been busy with some other assignments lately so it took me a while to move forward with this one. Anyway, I've blocked in the main shapes and took the time to quickmask the most important ones (like the ship, the sea beggars, the mountains and the foreground). I also used some quick textures here and there, but I still need to tweak, render and highlight those. I also worked a bit on the color palette which I have to say I'm pretty fond of right now. I feel it really has that ominous mood I was aiming for.
