In Sumerian mythology, Nammu was the primeval sea that gave birth to An (heaven) and Ki (earth) and the first gods, representing the Apsu, the fresh water ocean that the Sumerians believed lay beneath the earth, the source of life-giving water and fertility. (5 years and 1866 days ago)

Good idea. Mountains need shadows, the figure could use more defined shadows, if not a reflection. Edges of the figure & globe could use some subtle blurring. I'm not sure about the texture on the model, but if you like it, that's your call.
PS: Good find on the mythology theme.

Thanks for the compliments and the suggestions. I added some shadowing for the mountains and also slightly softened the edges of the sphere and model. I don't believe that you would find more defined shadows on such turbulent waters as these. It was a specific choice I made not to have them defined so they looked more natural. At least that's how I see it. The choice of texture was to make her look like she was made partly of water and also so it just wasn't a nude woman on water. Nammu was part of the sea and that's what I wanted to portray.

I still don't see shadows of the mountains on the water. The rest is better.

Hopefully they are a bit more defined now.
