How to draw water in anime style
Hello dear friends, in a fun and beautiful lesson, on how to draw water, or draw the sea in the Japanese anime way, the lesson will be easy, and the method is simple, and the beautiful thing is that you can draw and invent it however you want.
And the background drawing program that I always used is Clip studio paint, for one-time purchase and free download, below.
1 We draw zigzag lines, connected to each other, with curves at their ends, and they represent the movement of water
2 Draw more closed curves inside, but smaller ones, choose the way and shapes you want
3 Color the whole page in blue, and to the degree you want, it will reflect the surface of the water
4 As we previously sketched the waves of the water surface, at this stage, we draw in white on a new layer.
5 Then when we are done, we copy the same layer that we drew in white, with the selection tool, and go to a new layer, and fill it with a little dark blue
Then we stretch the layer to the left a little, to give us a shadow under the water
6 In the shadow layer, we add the effect of "blur" or "blur", in order to reduce the intensity of the shadows
At the edges of the water, you can fill it up, thicken it, until it looks softer
This is a closer shot
7 Final step You can add some shine, sparkle or even the reflection of sunlight, and this is the end result
