Yeah, I've started a series of terrains revolving around a ship named The Drunken Explorer's journeys.

...more to be added I guess. Now I want to hear your thoughts.

The second one is working just fine for me.

This is an interesting idea you have, it will be interesting to see how it turns out.

The terrains are good. The first one is really blank, but nothing you can do about that I guess since its at open sea. The sun looks amazing in that one though. My only concern about that screenshot is the lines you can see between the water and the sky.

Oh not, definitely not a merc ship. It... explores, then is recruited in the fleet against orcs and undead and what-not.

The lines... they can't be changed really, though I kinda like the effect, sorta like a foggier transition than the rough sea-sky one you would get with the normal water. Besides, it works better with the sun, which was, in fact, a freak accident I created while experimenting with the glue screens. I loved the result though.

It better not be, or we would be in for some lame terrains!

The only reason I don't like the lines is because it seems like you can see through the water that should be at the edge of your viewing capabilities. Like a see through earth if you will.

Looking pretty good, but it's upsetting how you can see the layers of the water model at that angle in the first shot.
