There is no human strength that fate can't break at leisure. Nothing stands between us and despair but each other.
This is an alternate picture to this scene:
Main storyline starts here:
DAZ3D Iray Render, minor PS & Topaz post work.
Pirate: The Pirate herself.
Pirate: Officer Background
Pirate: Setting and Plot
Pirate: Concept and Summary
(Only the rescue team gets to see the nice bits, lol.)
As a child, I always came across boats in which there was water at the bottom, I had to take a scoop and from time to time throw out the water.
I always thought that this is a design feature, but it turns out that it should not be so.
They're really complementing each other. The other one was mainly done with the overall appeal in mind. It's certainly better from a composition aspect. But I did a lot of work on the shaders and textures in between, there's a reason I did no close-ups at first.
And of course the second one is more intimate (lol, actually more intimate than the version I posted) but it's mostly to complement the writing which is done from the male protagonists point of view.
