I've been doing quick sketches of the the 'Yggdrasil Treeship' trying to find a final design for the ship to take forward. I've enhanced my original design with the feedback given to me by Alan.
One way to improve it was to add a layer of space, as opposed to being flat and rigid. I've also gone back to the description in the book to ensure that it stays true to the authors vision.
I'm leaning towards the final picture as I feel that it incorporates every aspect of the descriptions from the book as well as the advice given by Alan.
I plan to talk to Phil about the final decision and any input he can give me.
I'll then create another silhoutte of it, followed by research into the materials of the ships mechanical parts.
