Quick animated test for a cartoon style ocean using 3ds Max 2012. Ocean created with HOT4max and shaded using MR's Ink'n'Paint shader. Reflection rendered separately and composited.
This is just a rough draft, colors can be adjusted easily. Addition of wakes and particle spray can be added as well. Transparency or translucency seem a little tricky, but I am sure possible.
