Ok, so everyone by now knows that I'm having a shipwreck being built over here in the game section on the forums. Also being feature over here for the "Design Your Own Shipwreck" page explaining how you can go and have your very own shipwreck be built into the game for the rest of the community to explore.
Well, for those that are interested here are some line art that you can take and color in what you think my ship should look like (color wise) to help the devs and me out. Rules are we are trying to avoid the overly used pink and MLP show theam colors, but more on the line of "If this was in the real world" type scheme. Also please include what name/names (can include multiple) you like to suggest for my ship. Remember you don't have to post a color pic of the ship with a name, and you can also just submit names only if you like.
links for the line art
Have fun and lets see what we all come up with ^_^

Concept art evolution:
Forth concept done by @TayyKitsune
edit: design updates
Current status: working 2-10 really s*#k ^_^
to start off, I'm moving Pell_mell's ship over here
Liking Perdis Poneo, for lost pony in Esperanto.
Also like the Lady of the Sea, and getting "Maris Domina" from google translate, which could be another option for Domina in mare?
well I used both google and bing to translate them into latin because it has a certain charm to it.
I love "Mare" something. The linguistic connection between sea and female horse cannot possibly be passed over. Just my two cents though ;) How about "Equa Mare" - equa being female horse, and mare being sea?
Edit: Or maybe something with Praepes.
praepes - swiftly flying, nimble, fleet, winged, lucky, favourable
My design skills are pretty bad, and I keep thinking pink and purple, but I'll give it a go with some other colours and see what I come up with.
I'm envisioning a ship which has most of its paint stripped by the ocean, so the colour is mostly just wood. With barnacles and seaweed and moss but also flakes of paint in indigo and magenta. But not too bright, as they would have been made hundreds of years ago, and I assume paint was more subdued back then.
Unfortunatly i can't help you for that i'm not really great...
Last time i came on your others post i was searching a name for your ship but didn't found one yet! be sure if i think of one i will tell you.
alos i just found that, it might be intereseting you Pink Wood Textures
By the way it's nice that way you do participate the community on your shipwreck! really nice
I spent some time last night trying to colour in the ship, I am just terrible and have nothing to show :(
that's ok, we won't judge your coloring job to bad :p remember this is a great community and best example is look how well and nice everyone is treating me for being a male adult military brony. Still if you want you can still submit/suggest possible names for my ship ^_^
so, is the unicorn-ship in the game at last? XD will be epic
not yet, you can see the progress thats been made by following the link at the top. It still needs an official color scheme which is what this thread is for along with a name. So I'm asking the WoD community if they like to help out by submiting their color design using the provided line art links and also name suggestions for me to look over and be inspirered by for the finally product.
I've had a go, I like the head, hair and wing colours but not the ship but it's a good first attempt.
Interesting Brettarm, your colour scheme is not a million miles away from what I had started work on :)
Nice work, I like red hair.
Really nice, I like the red and gold, with the white.
Oooo nice texturing! Not to mention putting it in context under the sea, impressive. I like the classic ship color scheme too.
Love the bi-color on the uni-corn. Nice touch.
dont forget guys that we need names too ^_^
just bumping this up ^_^
"Navis Tantae" or "Aliquam Unicornis" ... I just put unicorn boat into Google translate. Sorry, I'm not very inventive.
added to the list
Unicorn in Old Greek
nice and just added to the list ^_^
Well the ship is going to look even better in the game. Aukje is doing a really good job and kind of finished the model of the ship today in Maya. That means everything has a base texture and next week Aukje will start working at the detail texture painting So create old paint and some gradient's in the wood.. It will look really cool.
Cheval de Mer - sea horse, French.
thanks, adding it to the list ^_^
Some update on the painting progress. Colors can be changed later on if needed :)
nice job! and my word is not representative
Oh my. Thats looking really awesome
Words cannot describe it alone.
[moderator] sorry, had to remove the image from memegenerator.net as it was blocking the whole page on some browsers. See http://www.divegame.net/node/53157#new[/moderator]
I am really excited for you Sgt_Brony :)
Concept art for the ships stained glass windows.
My idea for this was to base the stained glass art on the moon and the sun because you (Sgt_Brony) like Celestia and Luna the most.
The pony that is displayed on the windows is the same color sheme as the one I painted on the ship earlier. It's the same pony that has to do something with the moon and sun, the clouds and the waves :)
It are 4 textures you see on that one image.
Left above (small window) The sun and the clouds
Right above (small window) The moon and the waves
Left under (Door Left) The sun and the moon/sun pony
Right under (Door Right) The moon and the moon/sun pony.
I'm not sure about the design of the pony yet because of copyright related issues. Do you have an idea what I could do?
I think if you leave them as unicorns it should avoid copyright issues of using the mage Celestia and Luna. I kinda like that color scheme for the one on the right (moon side) because it fits it nicely. The unicorn with the sun, maybe a slightly brighter color just to make them different from each other. but I am loving the top sun and moon pane glass
Has Unicornous been said?
Acceptable, I still prefer the kind of realistic ancient galleon, it is too spectacular.
Just updated the main page with all the 3D design build of the ship for easy to find/see
bumping up to try and get more people interested in help making a color scheme and naming my ship for the game.
Mannulus de Mari - pony of the sea, Latin.
Naufragum Mannulus - shipwrecked pony, Latin.
Hope we see some more pics or news soon ;-).
thanks, I'll add them to the list ^_^
How is going on with all this names for your ship? I saw a lot now!
Your shipwreck looking beautiful so far!
Not bad, was hoping to maybe see some more community art being submitted tho.
I am no artist but I will definitely look forward to diving the site and taking the best photos I can
Most of us are anticipating to dive at this site. I think it's because I'm involving the diving community input on it to help shape it and that we built it together. That or because of the main pony theme ^_^
shameless bump to entice new members to help see this and help out
I have good news about the shipwreck!
You and the community will soon be able to dive and explore the Brony wreck.
Everything is finished but something that would still be nice to add is a name.
Have you already decided on one?
For now the ship will be nameless, but in the next update the name will be on the ship!
Ok, hey everyone lets try to get a name decided on before the new update comes out
How about "Unicrom". LOL
Transformers, they're ponies in disguise
Well since you ask I'd like to suggest the name: Mar Servient
