The New Sea #1

After having ** out the first sea with my lousy moldings, i had to create another sea! I made it more violent as I was just a bit pissed of having to do everything all over again.

14€ of resin thrown out of the window, the original master for the sea destroyed in the process, I am *not* happy.
