I hope you all liked the tutorial on the skateboarder that I submitted for all of you people out there that love to sketch, draw and color. This next and final lesson is going to be on "how to draw a surfer, step by step". This was definitely a challenge for me to color. The finished colored drawing looks like a painted sketch that took forever. To tell you the truth, it did take forever to color in the surfer that I drew out because I used a different coloring technique that I learned from reading various Adobe Photoshop books. Surfing is a water sport that was derived from the Hawaiian culture. Like surfboards from today, in the past they were made from the best wood available from the best tree. The best surfers in Polynesian culture are called chiefs and they are offered only the best waves from the best beaches on the best surfs. Back in the 1700's, surfing was done naked and they really felt the power of the waves. All surfing terms used today are from the Hawaiian language and some of the best surfing can be found is done in Hawaii. California is also a very good place to find some righteous waves as well. Surfers some times wait for hours until the perfect wave comes along just to get the adrenalin rush from riding an awesome wave. Actors like Matthew McConaughey surfs California waves and believe me something like that doesn't go unnoticed. Does the sport of surfing have champions like the Olympics you ask? Yes they do. In fact there is a three time World Champion named Andy Irons that is recognized by surfers all around the surfing world. Even though I had a hard time with this drawing, I still had an awesome time sketching him out. It is time for me to go and start drawing tutorials for tomorrow, but in the mean time you should tackle this lesson on "how to draw a surfer, step by step". I will be back tomorrow, but you can still catch me online drawing or chatting. Peace out people, and right on!
