Wow! I should try something like this. I tend to task myself with these huge epic projects...then never see them through because I didn't accurately judge how long it would really take to make all my own.
Hehe I know what You´r talking about And yes!, you should try this out. I myself have never really done lowpoly before. And now i love it. One big reason is that u can make a whole litle scen in just a day. Or you can model a prop and have your fianl result some hours later. But the greatest advantage of lowpoly is that the UV mapping isnt such a downer xP Thumbs up for lowpoly
Thanks Its just one tiling texture, with bigger UV´s on the sides of the water object to inhence the feeling of refraction of the water witch is just a diffuse map with transparancy on it. The pebbled seabotton texture made its fair share too ^^
