I make random texture packs for blocks and I like to ask for the communities opinion on Prismarine blocks.

Personally the Prismarine blocks, apart from Dark Prismarine, are pretty ugly. I feel like the other Prismarines are just too teal and the Prismarine bricks were textured poorly (the pattern in terrible). I think a darker blue would make it fit with the new water shading from 1.13+

What are your opinions? Anything you want to see changed?

I agree that the textures are pretty terrible. I would've made Prismarine a bit more "smooth" looking and the brick variant to be carved in a similar manner to stone bricks in the normal textures. Dark Prismarine looks good as is, though. But that's just my opinion.

I think the structure of the texture is good, but a slightly darker blue would look very good

The base prismarine has laways struck me as looking like a marine version of cobble. (I also wonder what effect the animation has on performance, but haven't encountered noticable lag even with build having considerably more rtahn the OM.)

Dark prismarine has been my favorite as well.

The pismarine brick pattern seems off to me, it would look better if the pattern of joints tesselated (and interlocked). [I would, however, prefer a pattern markedly different the rectilinear patterns of the other brick style blocks…]

Looking at the fxvrhiistj631.png pivc I think shifting the hue from the original towards the green (rather than the blue) would give a better match to the guardians. (Aside from aesthetics, this would also give the OM defenders better camoflage and make clearing a wee tad more challenging…)

I like the shade of turquoise the prismarine bricks have. I used them in several vehicles and it always turned out great.
Dark prismarine also has a nice shade of green. Although it has a kind of unsettling texture I really like building with it.
