@Jamahoney, I really like your feet in shallow water scenes - kind of nostalgic idea and they look great!
@Savage64’s glass of water is almost perfect- Wow! - makes me thirsty to see it! Only perhaps the watery pattern on the floor is too odd and less convincing.
Your ship in the rain is also amazing and spectacular - did you do post-work effects on it? The ropes and detail have a sketched look on closeup view.
@JStryder the frog in tub idea is great - maybe needs some waviness of the water surface around the edge, and the frog’s skin texture is a bit dull and not living up to the liveliness of the other objects. Add some more reflection and shine in skin the eyes and you’re away!
@Hansmar - I’ve seen those water-drop pics you mention and they are so beautiful - your modeled drop in looking very good indeed!
@Horo’s moody scene is very beautiful indeed - so realistic and peaceful.
@Orbital’s idyllic scene has indeed managed to create the feeling of an old image and is very grand.
@Adbc’s scene will also look majestic with that white desert once the objects’s scales are better matched to the scene terrain scale and the perspective.
I haven’t had time to do a scene just for this watery theme yet - but to show my interest, I’m posting this one which I did in preparation for the December competition. this was a bit of an inadvertent render but it looks quite unusual and dramatic anyway.
