So, yes, the starting point for this is the Princess of Scandinavia, photographed in the port of Gothenburg on 6 October 2006. But what would she have looked like in the colours of Baltic Sea ferry operators sailing from Finland?
|The original, a sexy ship in sexy DFDS "racing stripes" livery.|
|Silja Line colours, variation 1. I'm quite fond of the blue stripe on the hull, actually...|
|...but I also did a more traditional version. Which doesn't actually look as good if you ask me. I wonder why I didn't make a version with a blue funnel; it could have looked great.|
|Princessella. Silly name, and the livery doesn't really work that well. Maybe I should have gone with something more similar to the original livery. Or added a black window stripe somewhere.|
|This was the time when Tallink's lime livery was brand new. And I do still kinda like it - but this is clearly the most "this would never have happened anyway" of these variations. One of the 1990s Tallink liveries might actually have happened.|
