    Just completed the illustration view, though I need to create top down and a few other angles. This is the Spelljammer ship, Cristatus - a large Peacock Elven noble sloop, with presumably a crew of 36, in 3 shifts of 12 crew. This for an ostentacious, noble elf as a kind of aristocratic yacht. Although as shown is unarmed, it is always accompanied by an escort flight of Sparrowhawks. Beneath the poop deck under the ring of the tail sail is the helm, which also serves as a wizards laboratory and navigation. Beneath that is the noble captain's personal quarters. Beneath that is officer rooms for sick bay, galley and dining room, offices, with a stairs to floor above and stairs down. The main deck is the gravity plane, so all decks below are on the otherside of the gravity plane, includes crew quarters, armory, grain stores and cargo hold at lowest deck. A trap door on the main deck allows access for cargo, though at aft on the lower end is another larger bay door for accessing cargo. Tomorrow I'll work on deck plans and top down render...

    Next is a living tree ship, called the Arbor Galley, an official craft of the Astal Druidic Council. As a living tree, the aft end is the root ball, the midsection trunk has all the leaf branches which serve as sails. The forward part is a hollowed log with interior structure in the hollow, and living trees, grass as a grove above and below the gravity plane. Notably the passage across the gravity plane is via a pool of fresh water with fishes inside, 4 feet deep, but the top/bottom is the top on either side of the gravity plane. You can dive from one side to the other. The ship needs not enter a color sphere to refresh it's air bubble - the tree does that itself. A druid and staff operate this ship... enjoy!
