Hi, I'm Al Krakosky and I'm an artist. Today, I'm going to show you how to draw a tsunami. We're going to start off by drawing a curved line inward almost like a half circle. After you have that, go outward a little bit and draw another curved line and then you can connect up here lightly to get your wave shape. Once you have that, go on the inside and draw more curved lines leading up to this point and they can overlap over each other, be jagged. There's a lot of motion going on so these don't have to be perfect to get that wave look. Once you have that, you can go out here a little bit and make our shore then draw some curved lines, some wavy lines leading out and in a little bit and make our shore, then do the same line and then once more and then draw some more lines leading up to this wave. Once we have that we can go up here and erase a little bit to make our white caps, our white water on the top of the wave. I'm going to go in and draw some bumpy jagged lines. It's kind of going to end up looking like a shrub or a tree on top of this wave, bumpy lines to get the top of your wave that foamy water on the top. Go on the inside and draw some more wavy lines on the inside to give it that texture and that's how you draw your wave. After we have this we can add some more atmosphere, let's say it's raining, draw some diagonal lines quick diagonal lines, give it that rain look and then maybe add our beach on the shore here and some dots for that sand texture. And that is it, that is how you draw a tsunami. Thank you for watching and keep on drawing.
