I am working on a ship design. Below are some pictures of it. Just checking to see if anyone has some design advice that might make it look better.

13 views and no one has any comments? I will take the good with the bad. And any suggestions for improvements before I build it in VC.

It looks really good!  I don't have a whole lot of comments, as it's a good job!  The biggest thing is that the hull seems very layered, like there are sections of vertical planks that make the decks very apparent.  I would suggest smoothing out the shape of the hull and use some more slopes as opposed to vertical sections.

Other than that, I really don't have anything!  I like the design and it's a good shape.  Good luck!

I like the design, however, I agree with what Light said and on top of that, I feel like the aft(castle?)'s walls are built too flat. In my opinion I think it could go for a little bit of stylistic design with stairs/slabs/trapdoors.

Really liking the colour scheme and interior design though.

Thanks for the comments/advice/compliments. I made a few modifications to it using your advice and after looking at a few pictures of older ships. And I dubbed it The Crimson Creeper!
