I'm painting a mini with a light source, and decided to rebase the beastie with some water effects, probably epoxy resin. I'll probably try to make the water at least slightly rough, creating interest for the eye. I woke up in a cold sweat this morning realizing that the light source should be reflected (or possibly just highlighted) in/on the water.
My initial thought was to:
lightly (heh) color the bottom of the pool as if it were dry and lit by the light source pour and texture the water highlight the water by drybrushing from the light source out.
My concern about this is that if the viewer looks toward the light, the surfaces of any wavelets will be highlighted on the opposite side from the POV. In other words, the viewer will see the undersides or backsides of any highlights through the translucent wavelets, and this might not look the way the viewer expects.
Has anyone done this? I looked around for a few examples but although there are plenty of doing wave effects (froth and foam), I haven't found any yet that look like translucent glare.

This walking turret is scary in urban settings where it's hard for everyone to move. Slow and ponderous, the lack of a large engine to move it allows it to carry a wallop.

First finished mini of 2016. I started this with the intention of gifting it to my Mom for Xmas. Well, Xmas is crazy busy and I didn't have time to finish her. So she'll get her tomorrow instead. She will be a part of the Nativity scene I plan on creating for her Xmas present this year. I loved painting this one, all that lovely cloth and the wings were super fun to do. I'm very pleased with the yellow. Yellow has been the bane of my existence but I think I may have cracked it. Now if only I could take a decent picture...
Here's a quick and slightly nasty photo of some sweet sweet resin mecha. The Big guy there has some fairly bad blemishes on his left leg, but the rest was beautiful. All the weapons are modular and available individually, so might be worth a look for conversions, find 'em at Gangfight Games.
