In case you're interested...
Everyone who worked on the Rosetta comet mission loved the paintings made by Ekaterina Smirnov. Her work really captured not only the comet, but the excitement of seeing the new images each day.

Any attempts to estimate the accurate appearance of the sky of Titan, or any world, would be appreciated.

I'm still considering how to render Titan's sky from the surface. This University or Arizona animation shows a more uniform sky even near the sun without an aureole. This makes sense the more I think about it. The sun and sky color look pretty good. It's a quite well done rendering of the descent and surface views.

Might be a challenge to see much sun reflection in a lake, maybe a few nearly pointlike glitter reflections. The pattern of glitters would be elongated in the vertical. The sun itself is also nearly pointlike, about like Uranus looks in a 50x telescope. The overall sky could darken a bit near the horizon, depending on the regional surface albedo.
