Survey Ship

A scientific survey ship collects data from the oceans, such as the shape of the ocean floor, and transmits the data to a GPS satellite.
Bryce, a landscape modeling program, helped me create the ocean floor, sky and seawater. The ship was modeled in form•Z, and composited with the rest of the art in Adobe Photoshop. Additional digital painting of the waves off the prow of the ship adds a touch of realism.
