The Compass Rose
The Compass Rose. A Flower-Class corvette. My entry for the "Get Some Perspective!" Contest.
About this creation
Yeah, this is my entry...

The Compass Rose. (Kudos for anybody that can tell me the book where I got that name!)She's even at an angle.

The smoke-stacks, and her bridge are smaller then they should be, to give the "Forced-perspective effect...




The front is the only side she looks good on... As you can see I never finished her stern...




A uppy close picture of her bow.


And one last shot of the Compass Rose's captain. notice his leg on the rail...

Did anybody else noticed how much the railing looks like a huge, wide smile? Anyways, that's probably one of my favorite parts, I like his leg up on the rail, a nice detail.

Score: 6 points overall, It kills me that some of the nicest parts of the ship are either hard to see or unfinished. Nice title shot, looks dynamic.7 points for the forced perspective, it's very original and nicely presented. 6 points on the quality of the forced perspective too, the towering bridge in the back came out great. Its still a shame on the unfinished stern, this would be a fun model to revisit sometime in the future. Anyways very nice job on this. 19 points completed score.

OK fine, I confused myself at first by seeing the stacks as part of the bridge. I'll up my score to 18 for the effort. Maybe some smoke or a slightly different focus might have clued me in easier (didn't want to rely on your text description vs. the achieved look).

BTW: I do realize the smoke stacks might be a try at a 3rd scale in the row, but the main pic does not show that very well. They are made clear in the later pic for documentation. A side shot with a narrowing hull would have played that feature up much better.

Score: 7 for build, loads of details, bow, rail, color line, waves, guns, bridge, some listing, very nice; 5 each for perspective originality and effectiveness. You got the basic idea of 2 things at different scales, and it creates a sense of depth. Could up the ante with either a 3rd item at a 3rd scale, or a continuous variation, like a gradually narrowing hull towards the bridge and a slightly angled side shot. Good job in total. total score = 17

It can certainly be a cruel sea out there. I'll judge later, but looking good.

Not bad, it looks very good from the FP angle.

Very nice forced-perspective work! I particularly like the way you built the parts on the back-end of the ship. Clever idea, that!

The ship is great! I love the pose with the captains foot on the rail

Awesome how you squeezed so much detail into this, and those are some very bizarre angles.
