Impressive Z, the dock looks great. Now I'd really like to see a picture of the PotC dock. Or maybe I should just watch those movies.
Heh- Here is a *egablocks version that I found... I was doing a google image search to find a shot of the docks from the movie for you, but this came up in the results. I didn't even know this was out there... I hope mine ends up looking better than this!
Also, in the movie the whole thing is rotated 90 degrees and I am not exactly sure how one gets between the levels...
My version is certainly my own take on it- but you can see, as I said, I got alot of inspiration from the movie on the dock.

I like the style of the docks. The stone foundations for the cranes really break up the brown of the docks. Maybe you could try to add some more color to break the brown here and there.
Good call my man.
Yes. I tried to add some of the dark brown in there too, but it is still largely a hunk of rown. I am considering adding some dark tan here and there and I am not done with all the railings.
My camera also doesn't do too well in low light with the flash on... the flash just kinda removes some of the natural gaps between the bricks that give it a better look- I looks pretty nice in person (as does the Phantom which mostly looks like a black blob from my camera), so maybe I need to just open the shades, turn off the flash, and use a tripod to get a few good snaps. I think maybe adding more on top of the docks will help too. It is still in progress after all.
