So I've painted up a couple of sample pieces of my 4bot tiles and to try out an ice recipe. I thought I'd get some feedback. It seems a bit too sea glass for me.

Phtalo green (yellow ink) +medium, 20200101_203314.thumb.jpg.49b1aa3a56dc4745eeb2163c8bca39ec.jpgthen drybrush of teal20200101_203351.thumb.jpg.1d229f5da675c1d9f971e46daa99b277.jpg, turquoise,20200101_203434.thumb.jpg.9821ea8112dd817a02cd85e1e7bc0914.jpg pale blue20200101_203521.thumb.jpg.5c69ded938c2c7766768b1d37d25b71c.jpg, and adding white20200101_203600.thumb.jpg.6a271886488b878a0287e47b5fe25314.jpg.

Also included a pic of previous recipe using turquoise ink and pale blue, then white drybrush.20200101_203745.thumb.jpg.8eed2953e66d4b1d800afa5f63e03ca4.jpg

A little sea-glassy, but really I think it looks rather like Antarctic ice--ocean ice.  Maybe not quite right for mountainous glaciers, but it reads ice from most angles.

It seems you have the right colors. Both the green and blue can work. I think you need more white and maybe wind striations on it.  If you search Tube U you can find some terrain and base examples- Painting with Marrok seemed to have some good hints (striations and edging in white, etc).

This looks perfect for submerged ice, the bits of the iceberg underwater. The teal as your darkest hue rather than the phthalo green might be better for ice above the waterline, but I'm just guessing.

I might see if I have anything else to use as a base. I want some translucence, hence the inks.

And I found a deep turquoise, a phtalo blue (green) - I didnt pay attention which is which(I think the phtalo is bottom right) , and turquoise (top) , which is "opaque."

I kinda like all of those better. Almost feel like it would be cool to have that original phtalo as a colour for the middle of the tile, with one of the others top and bottom. Not sure that's really doable.

Any preferences?

Tough decision... maybe bottom left. But like bottom right too. And the top would be good for specific ice (sea wall ice)...

Sky blue for the blue?

An image search on Icebergs and Sea Ice is in order.

Reapers snow Shadow is a white with a bit of blue in it. Might be the color you're looking for.

I think, as a proof of concept, you've nailed it! Now you just have to fine tune the colors! Awesome work.
