First of, I am continuing learning and this is a hobby for me, so I can afford to take the long road and try loads of stuff. I am building a game and making some artwork for that, this image is the first reasonable attempt I made.
It shows one of the characters in the game, walking on a dock. The mooring poles and dock and sailor are coming along now. I am not unsatisfied. But, as he is standing on the harbor dockside, I’d like to stretch out behind him some water and sky. And I can’t really wrap my head around it. I’ve tried making a large plane for the water surface and then a vertical one for the sky, but it just doesn’t really work. I’ve tried using stock images, but that just ruins the overall feel. I feel like I am just not approaching this from the right angle.
Anyone have any suggestions?
