how to draw a wave

how to draw a wave

Step 1.

First start the background and a simple outline

Step 2.

add a lighter colour inside the outline try not to go out the lines too much

Step 3.

this is just something that helped me blend in on the next step

Step 4.

now blend in with a dark blue still leaving some light blue

Step 5.

just a tiny bit of detail

Step 6.

blend some green in with your wave

Step 7.

and even some purple if you want more to it

Step 8.

some random lines that will come in handy later

Step 9.

more random lines

Step 10.

cover most of the lines up with any matching colors (green , purple , black , blue , etc) and add the foam

Step 11.

and for the finishing touches although it may seem a big difference from the last step , its simply to add lots of black and white (lightly). I hope you enjoyed this tutorial also my first tutorial on how to draw a wave and I'll hopefully be uploading more in the future. Post your results so i can see em , Bye.

I know i said i wouldn't make any tutorials but i figured out how to :) this should be kind of easy once you get the hang of it. but add lots of detail. The best results will come from drawing on a computer with a tablet.I think the tutorial will say the rest so let me know how they turn out and good luck
