Hello,

I would like to enter this fxwars contest. I will be working with Wirginia Romanowska on a fx shot of Triton Tower. We will be creating a custom tower to be placed in open ocean, and simulating waves crashing around the tower. Here are some reference images of our idea.

Even though we are just now entering the contest, we have already been working on it. We got a late start and were not sure if we could finish, but our recent progress has encouraged me to submit an entry.

Here is some of our work so far.

I began texturing the rock that the tower sits on. So far there is a diffuse and normal map applied. I have displacement, but it kills render times.

Still working on details and paint for the other objects in the scene.
