An island arena for a project currently in development. The reason for all the open space in the center of the image is so that players have a lot of room to run around. -- The perspective is a little strange, but I felt it was a necessary evil to create more atmosphere in this game. (Having the top down view while allowing the player to see the horizon.)

I realize there are probably a lot of colors here, but I wasn't super concerned about conservation on this piece. I tried to keep the count low though.

The final water animation will also be tweaked with some programming and lighting to give it a more exciting effect.

Here is a WIP of this piece -

I'm sure you could actually achieve thise perspective with a certain camera lens emphasising the curvature of the Earth. It isn't even noticable. I think the saturated ocean and sky create a nice contrast between the playable area and it's boundaries.

Fantastic! I love pieces like that...

That's a rather nice scene
but I think putting some more life into it couldnt hurt
i.e. trees swaying and leaves rustling in the wind, ripples in the water, the tide moving in and out, etc.
I also feel that the greens in the trees and background foliage could stand to be a little more saturated and pure, more hueshifted towards blue or purple in the darker areas, compared to everything else they appear to be a tad dull.

It may be better as a single frame rather than a gif, but lovely nonetheless.

Agreed with skeddles

This is nice, I love the sand. Water seems more to be glowing than flowing.

The sand is most impressive! Thanks for adding the WIP, super helpful!

The sand is very well detailed. It all looks very cool. The water animation does kind of remind me of a beating heart, probably because I'm seeing it all at once here as a big round shape, but I do like the shapes of the waves.
