2.1 RazorQT wallpaper

I love the scene and the ship but the ship's bow doesn't look quite right. Is this a real ship in a real scene or something someone created?

It is created. How do you feel the bow could be improved?

Wear your underpants on the outside and put on a cape.

IMO The bow's spar(??) doesn't look like its firmly attached to the hull. It looks like it's just laying on the deck. And with the job it has to do with the sails and wind I would think it would be more a part of the ship's hull.

Maybe some of these likes will help explain what I'm trying to say.

BTW The closest I've been to a masted ship is the USS Constitution.

Thanks. I can assure you the spar is firmly digitally attached to the hull. I wouldn't want the Porteus vessel to go down easily. The reason it appears strange is a reflection of the deck that passes in front of the spar and makes it appear disonnected. BTW, I didn't create this art.

Are you able to edit the reflection out?
