My build for the Neroguian Secrets Unearthed challenge. This is one of the first time I have built a brick-built ship that actually looks good, and I'm so proud of it, though the hull technique and designs are taken from Mark of Falworth's in his iBrick blog. Enjoy!
About this creation
The four Neurogians, Destrian, Rowan, Terrowin, and Favian, began to sail back to Nerogue after the encounter with the Black Lotus. Destrian planned to tell Darvainian, the leader or Nerogue, about he and his team's encounter. Right now, they were sailing along the coast of Worsan.
Destrian: Let's stop here and rest. I think I might be getting seasick.
Destrian and Favian hopped down from the small ship onto the beach while Rowan and Terrowin stayed behind. The water seeped into Destrian's boots but he enjoyed it for it cooled him off.
Destrian: I'm going to look around!
Destrian climbed onto the pile of rocks-
-and stood up, scrutinizing the surrounding environment. The whole ocean around them was calm as far as he could see, but a bright light caught his eyes.
Destrian: What is that?
Destrian: That bright orange light in the distance. It looks like a fire!
Rowan: I don't like it, can we go now?
Destrian: Yes I think that would be wise.
Creator's comments: Well David FNJ I hope this qualifies for that challenge! This build was a lot of fun to make! Especially the ship. Like I said above it was one of my first and my best brick built ships ever.
That ship is definitely what we've come to expect from you- great job! It seems to be riding a bit high in the water, though, and looks quite empty without a cabin. on the back. Also, if you have the pieces, the rocks would look better if they were wider.

Thanks. I appreciate the constructive criticism. I didn't think much about adding details to the ocean, I just really wanted to get this build over with so I could build more stuff.

That boat is really good, but the gray makes it look a little like rockwork; brown, if you have enough of it, might work better. (And I recognize the rocks. :P)
I know, I have a very small brown collection and a ton of dark bley slopes. Also, the rocks were meant for this build first, but I believed it deserved that picture, like I said in that last post. I hope you read everything.
The boat is very nice...but I think a bit more could have been put into the land area...And not to be mean...but this almost felt very emptyD:
Like how there's that little barrel/object floating in the water? Perhaps put ing some blue bricks/trans blue studs would create a better ocean effect.
Or maybe making a bigger shore line. I understand you collection might not prohibit such ambitions at this time....but keep working towards expansion;) Overall though, the ship is very nice!
