Koi Fish by briteddy Koi Fish by briteddy
Whoo I sorta like how this one came out. Still yet again just practice with trying to make convincing water. I don't find this "convincing" necessarily however, I was focusing more on the dynamics of ripples and the effect it would have on objects underneath it. Turned out kind of okay I think. I was very unloyal to the natural colors of koi fish though haha, for shame keia, for shame. Can't get enough of that bubble gum array of colors, go figure.

Art me, please do not copy or redistribute.

If there's anyone out there who's found effective ways of rendering good water, PLEASE critique. :heart:

I actually like the colors that you chose and the water looks ok..you really dont need to concentrate hard on the water the fish just seem to catch my attention more that anything else anyways. I really like the purple fish it looks so awesome:)

Hmm...as far as rendering water goes, I think it's more a matter of highlights/lowlights on the matter of what's beneath the ripple. Like, if you look at a rock that's under water, and then ripple the water that's above it, you lose sight of the rock in certain areas as the water starts to reflect the sky and just whites out, almost. Also, the distortion of the figures underneath the ripples could probably be a bit more pronounced for realism... .
I hope I didnt' come off sounding too ridiculous. I love this image very much and am going to favorite it as soon as I am done writing this. Also, I was just going to say that I think the fishes look like they have maps on them!!! and that was going to be my entire comment, until I saw the little 'Advanced Critique Encouraged' hint above the comment box. ^^; and read about your struggle with water. It is one of the harder things to do...but still, I love this image!!
