Water Experiment

\

I’ve been working on water, and came up with a system which I think can be implemented within the engine of The Salvage.  The three images above show the water layer as I drew them (top), then the layer is set to 50% opacity (middle), finally the layer is set to ‘dodge’ (bottom).

In-engine, I’m thinking that this method of water would be done in two passes.  First the actual blob of fluid pixels would be shaded to give that light > dark banding, followed by the shafts of light and bubbles being rendered on top of that.  I’ve got a couple ideas for making the light shafts fade in and out that I still want to try.  Overall I think this looks good, and by altering the hue and post-effects it should be possible to make it look like several other fluids as well.
