I have finished a ship model I've been working on and decided to create an ocean to put it in! The animation is basically a pass-by. I added smoke from the stacks, of course, and I think it looks acceptable for a first try (though I'd like your opinion as well).
I already can see room for the following improvements. Firstly, I need to add a bit of reflectivity to the ship. Secondly, the wake needs tweaking, as does the ocean. Thirdly, I suppose I should figure out how to add a bow wave, and finally I need to figure out how to light it so the ship casts a better shadow on the ocean.
Of course, any and all comments are welcome! The link to my YouTube video collection is here:
and the name of the video is "Russian Pre-Dreadnought Battleship". Here's a picture from the animation. Enjoy!
