Nice! I wonder if the upper part of the wave might be a bit dark though. would it look better if it had lighter blue bricks or more trans bricks? I think the lower part works with solid colours and the mix but whenever I see film of surfers the wave seems more glassy and lighter than the main body of sea. Just a thought.
Good point. It does depend on the type of wave though. Churned up or wind affected waves are more opaque, as are thicker swells. Also, that tranlucent effect is often dependant on high sunlight - you wouldn't necaccerily expect it in a storm at sea for instance. As to the practical considerations, inverted slope bricks don't come in trans-blue, and i am iffy about the transition between medium blue and trans dark blue as a gradation.
So solutions using slopes could be quite challenging. I expect that i'll have a play around with different colour combos though, just to check it out.
