Swamp Water

I'm working on a server, just kinda on the side for something to do and I've come up with a concept for a swamp town:


But am having trouble even starting with doing the swamp water.

Also, better worse?


The bridge/dock whatever you want to call it is just a sketch, still working on it.

Is it too busy? Should I switch to something simpler?

Yeah it's too busy.
Maybe try just toning down the contrast a bit though?

It needs a way more simple texture and less contrast, try some clear green water tones and then add in what should be in the depths, to give it more of a swamp water texture, but try to keep it really simple.

Look at actual swamp water. It's stagnant. What you have right now looks like radioactive waste. I would introduce some browns, as well.

Have you played Heroes 3 before?

Check out the "fortress", it got a pretty sweet swamp theme (the huts reminded me alittle bit about it actually).

oh and, is the bridge gonna have such small pillars to hold it up?

It looks like leaves yes, but it's also pretty sweet.
