How to create a ship in illustrator | tutorial in 15 minutes

For my game psychic pirate I need some more ships so I decided to show here how I make these ships in a fast way. The ship will be viewed from the front.

Step 1:
Start with the basic shape of the ship and make the right part slightly darker then than the left. Also create the mast with the block tool.

Step 2:
Add the sails, I used the pen tool for this and copied it and re-sized it.

Step 3:
Add some details to the ship, I used the pen tool on the mast and create some lines for more effect. Set the border profile to “width profile 1″

Step 4:
Add some shadow, use black color and set the opacity to 10-15%

Step 5:
I wanted the ship to be a battleship so I added some canons and also added a crow nest.
