Default Toxic River and Lake (pic heavy, now with Tutorial!)

Here is a lake and a river that I recently made. They are on my WIP cities of death board!

Remember the water is not meant to be crystal clear, it is meant to be slimy, green and toxic looking!! :-X

The lake.







The lake, with a model to show size.


The river.



Note the waves




Bird's eye view.




Cool pic of river!

Toxic looking, heck that the way ALL the river look where I live.. all this time I thought that was the GOOD water!..

Very nice work, good effect of water, great color work, rocks, beach works too!

You do have lights in your house right? >

Perhaps some better lighting next time, terrain is great to look at.

Other than the lighting, this is a great looking board!

I took the pics in an out building and light in there is scarce! The flash on the camera made the terrain look rubbish :-\

Lord Black Steel you were kiding about you thinking normal rivers looked like that, right?

Actually, the creek by my hosue looks like that too, and it feels great to swim in! ;D

But yeah, back to the trerrain :shifty:

Looks like a great piece all in all, is it on an anctual board or is it a modular piece?

Its on the board. It's the only thing on this board (apart from the road) that isn't modular.

Looks plenty toxic to me, though judging by some of the comments I think a brighter/more yellowish green around the edges would have helped.

How do you do water anyway, do you mix the water effects in with paint and paint it all on at once, or paint your colors on first and then use the water effects, or put the water effects on and paint over it? Or paint, water effect, and then more paint over that?
