This shows the main phases in the evolution of my Rock The Boat deviation:

  1. The first sketch

  2. The basic object

  3. Applied a texture that correctly matches up everywhere

  4. Added a reflection

  5. Let the reflection appear on a rippled surface

  6. Casting shadow "inside" the water (using scattering)

  7. Added a wake

  8. The end result!

Yes, very annoying, they wouldn't stay put. That made it extra difficult to make this image. ;-)

:#1: Yes, very helpful.

:nod: I know it's going to be quite a steep learning exp, as I didn't get far with Bryce or Maya. But perseverance & dedication to the task, egged on by the immaculate vision :mwahaha: of my end goal will be the tools of success.

I guess I'll have to disconnect myself from the thralls of my obsession with Apophysis before that happens, easier said than done :rofl:

:thanks: Thanks for posting this here. I'm a great believer in these kinds of instructive mini-tuts. I'm sure many will benefit. :clap:

No problem. I hope it will be of help to you, as well as maybe others.

Perseverance, dedication and immaculate vision should be more than you need, really, so as long as you can drag yourself away from Apophysis you should be okay :-)
