    Calan Stonebridge had never been on a large boat before. Although he was uncomfortable and still very scared he found himself fascinated by his surroundings. It was dark and cold but it seemed as if the ship around him was a living breathing thing. It's hull creaked and moaned and rose and fell as it moved over the water. Cracks of light shone through into the holding cell bringing an occasional gust of fresh cold air. Calan Stonebridge knew he was headed for a fate of unknown horror but just for this moment he was enjoying himself....

    Thanks for the tip Jacktannery. I had a "happy" accident while applying your suggestion. It is no secret that I like "dark and gloomy" I also like textures and contrast. During the saturation and hue adjustment pass I landed on this. It's not exactly what you had laid out for me but I have to admit I LOVE it. It's rough and dark and there is the splash of light that contrasts the darkness. I probably would have not found this without your help. Thanks SO much.

    Calan Stonebridge was no longer enjoying himself. The ship had taken to rocking violently and he could hear the sound of rain and wind lashing the deck. Although the Fler river was wide and usually calm, he had heard stories of freak storms raging down river from the North and wreaking havoc on ship traffic. It seemed as though the Promise of Fire was in the grip of one of those storms. He heard the sounds of retching and saw the large silent man and the woman both vomiting. He himself felt only slightly nauseous and was briefly proud of that. He braced himself as best he could against the movement of the ship and prayed that they ship was stout and could ride out the storm....

    I think I'm done with this. I have a tendency to "dawdle" over a map and fuss with it for too long. I like the way this turned out. It conveys the "feeling" that I had in my head when I was thinking about the next chapter in Calan's adventure. As always feedback is requested and appreciated.

    Agree - very nice and love the lighting now. The only thing I don't like are the rectangular things along the side of the boat - the reason I don't like these is their colour: the sickly greeny-yellow of snot. Love the new avatar too - maybe I'll adopt the same one and we can confuse everybody.

    Thanks Bogie. The new avatar was a long time coming. I kind of feel like I "graduated" or something (or at the very least grew up... )

    Thanks !! I think the hammocks came out pretty badly too. I've been looking at this (It's my desktop wallpaper) and I just can't seem to make decent hammocks. The color was an attempt to show a "well used" hammock fabric but your right it just doesn't look very good. I think I'll have a go a fixing that and a couple of other little issues before I call this "completed". As for the avatar thanks and that would be pretty funny but you don't want your excellent work mistaken for mine...

    Here is (I think ) the "completed" version of the Promise of Fire smuggling ship cargo hold and crew quarters. I removed the awful hammocks and replaced them with these very good ones from r-kelleg at Dundjinni. I also expanded on the storm theme I started in the story blurb by adding some items bobbing in the water. As always feedback is requested and appreciated.
