You did a good job with the waterline model, making it look to be listing. I'll bet your friend appreciates it.

I can appreciate the delicacy in applying the water tones over and around the hull, I'm working on a similar effect on a foundering World War One dreadnought.

very nicely done; as mentioned, really good water effects and gradients of color tonality. A winner in my book, thanks for sharing
