Thanks Anthony
I think I will stick with the turtle, if the water was deeper that would have worked, had only a little time to do the turtle (green sea turtle)...............dave

Hey i really like the look of the scene. Reminds me of Pixar's Finding Nemo (awesome movie). The turtle looks great too. Nice and simple but like it could have it's own personality.

Thanks Guys
MrYeti im looking for a realistic look so have some work to do modelling and doing a better texture in mudbox, dustykhan I might put some jelly fish in as I think that is part of there diet ...............dave

Edit:I thought I might as well explain what I am doing with the texture you see on the turtle,all the projections were projected on to 1 file texture what I need to do is for each projection create a file texture so I can do some colour correction in photoshop

Coming along there Dave. Question the water surface shader, is it using fresnel reflections?

One of your finishing touches just has to be bubbles!

Thanks Genny
Im using the ocean shader so the answer to your question is probably not, I did try using photons to create the god rays but I did not get it to work at the moment I have 4 lights in the scene 1 area light with texture for the god rays on the sea bed, 1 area light as a fill light, I spot light with texture for the fog god rays and 1 fill spot light for the turtle. Bubbles yes. Any suggestions Genny you have for the ocean shader will be welcome.....................dave
