    It's pretty simple.

    For the rocks;
    You make a rock on layer 1.
    Water on layer 2.
    And then a "half rock", with water effect on top of the other rock, on layer 3.

    For the shore;
    You make a "hole" made of mountains on layer 1.
    You then make water sprited like this:


    The top 8/16 of the tile should be empty.
    (Or the 8/16 on the right/left side for the sides)
    on layer 2.

    The water shouldn't have a built in shore.
    And I only used one single color for the water, and I used RMXPs
    built in "tileset-semi-transparent-maker".

    I hope this helps ;)

    Also thanks for the great comments, I actually didn't thought I was this good :P
