For my (first)entry I made a Trade Cogsailing back to Avalonia after a trade venture with Kaliphlin.

Such a beauty! That first pic is just great! How you managed to blur out the lego studs in the water is really nice!

Love all the details you put in as well, such as the cargo on the deck! :wub:

The 48x48 test cracked me up. Wonderful ship! The dark brown bits look really good and the overall shaping is very pleasing.

I really like the look and feeling about the cog and its surrounding waters.  :thumbup:
Is nice to see Avalonia has begun to construct ships of their own, as I think it was our great weakness, prior your trade cog, the other guilds dominated alone the waters.

Great design!I really like the hull, also the cargo looks very real. Although I don't hope they will face a storm, or all the cargo will go overboard!

Beautiful cog there! Especially the wide deck and the sail is very inspiring.
As the A.T.C. doesn't have a trade cog yet, it would surely come in handy to transport our goods overseas. For a good price of course!

Great work! :thumbup:

I agree, My third entry will be the ATC docks ( If Cap'n Blackmoor allows it)

Would it be OK if I simply joined the ATC? or at least until the contest ends? ATC trade cog sounds so much cooler  :laugh:

Nice work! This is something we havn't seen that much of here and this is an excellent example! Will you be making an Avalonian port for this? Well done for building something that we are lacking of in Avalonia :thumbup:

Very nice ship you've built here.  I like the color scheme, and it definitely looks like a solid cargo ship versus the war vessels we normally see.  I like the use of the canvas as well!
