Using a shiny silver thin plastic wrapping material, I re-tried making the waves. This looks so much better than the paper! The light reflections on the give it a more realistic water appearance. I have also used the reflection of the water against a white background as the new sky. I still feel I could get the motion smooth, but this wil be something I can get help with from the tutors when I am back at uni.
BOAT ON THE WATER:
Here I have done a quick test to see how the boat would appear on smooth water. I really like this and feel that my visuals are starting to come together.
