Hey guys, I do not know if this has already been drawn, but I just finished drawing the Schooner "Far Barcelona". Please give me feedback, this is my first sailship and I want to make sure that I did things correctly so that I can learn more for next time! :)

Contour-wise it looks fairly ok, except that these 6-pixel-thick masts looks IMHO too thick; but generally it looks "flat" - no attempt at all to show the shape of the underwater hull (even in the old days, before "45-degree rule" and the like, there was a way of showing that hulls aren't brick shaped) and it would be great to try improving the look of the sails (look on the drawing of other sail ships for inspiration - http://www.shipbucket.com/drawings/sear ... =&drawing= ). ;)

I don't know the ship, so I can't comment on the accuracy or not of the drawing, but the drawing itself needs some more work, as Eswube commented. I would also check the rigging, as it looks somewhat lacking. Sailing vessels tend to look a lot more complicated, all those lines and rigging.
I would also like to mention that your fonts and use of credits is not to the Shipbucket standards (look at the drawings at the above link to see what I mean). also see this for style guide.

Well, even without a rigging plan I can tell she's missing side stays or shrouds on the bowsprit and sheets on the main sail as well as topmast shrouds. Possibly backstays as well.
The top mast rigging and the hull colouring doesn't match. She doesn't appear to get that particular style of rigging until after 2009 when her hull was painted like this.
Oh and anchors. Don't forget the anchors.

That said it's not a bad effort.
