Thinking about the look of the water

The water is important here, Luisa showed me an animation showing simple 2D planes which were watercoloured, scanned in and animated against each other as 3 layers in opposite directions to create the classic cartoon 2D movement of water but with a professional feel of water colours.

The water in the film looked like (but much simplier) water from 'The Old Man And The Sea'.

I like the water effects in this film, it's amazing how the ocean looks as it's all hand painted.

As we're experimenting with possible water styles at the moment centered around water colours, it would be great to try and create a realistic water colour look using Maya and some scanned images.
