On a planet made up of mostly water, we’re bound to need to replicate it in visual effects work. From droplets to fountains, waves to rain, and tsunamis to waterfalls, we took a poll of some of our top water reference materials to share with you. We even included a studio favorite “dirty” water just in case you ever need that too!
