In drawing you need to be a master to depictincredible landscapes, portraits, avant-garde figures. But in the question of how to draw a wave, there is nothing particularly complicated. If you follow the instructions, that's how it will turn out.
The first thing you need is to choose on paperthe place where the wave, its foam and other elements will be located. If you want to depict a person riding a wave, do not forget to leave a place for him in the center of the picture. If you draw with a pencil, take a few to have a lead for hatching and to mark the outlines.
First draw on the place you indicatedthe bend of the wave by a light contour, then, after you have accurately determined the size and bend of the wave, make this contour clearer and brighter. Draw a place where the wave will form a strong bend. Draw a waveform from above, then draw a clear line below it, forming the bottom contour of the wave. Both lines must be twisted to form a "curl" of the wave, a tapering funnel.
Now, under the bend of the wave, you need to draw clear lines in the form of twisted semicircles. This way you can depict the direction of the wind, the shape of the water that it gives to it.
Draw a foam. It can be on the left side of the picture, as it rises opposite the wave when the storm is at sea. If the wave moves to the right, the foam will also be opposite. Make the outlines of the foam clear "curls".
Now on the wave and under it you need to picture moredark and lighter places, so that the wave was more beautiful and realistic. The darkest sections of the wave are the center of the funnel, the base of the wave. You can use a grinded pencil lead, grind it on paper, in order to give an effect to the drawing. That's all, the wave is ready! If desired, you can do it in color, but then you need to observe the intensity of the color in different parts of the wave.
