Hi, I'm Jessica and I'm an artist and today we're going to draw a wave surfer. So the first thing we're going to do is we're going to make a nice big wave that comes up. This wave is very large and it's basically going to come around the surfer so we're going to do this in blue and we're going to put a little bit of white on the edge to show that kind of sea foam that's coming off that giant wave, there we go. Now the surfer is in the wave so basically his board is kind of here and he's got, he's balancing on the board so he's got his legs and his body, we're going to draw sort off a line of action here, he's kind of bent and he's got a, he's got his hands balanced out. Now as you can see we're drawing kind of fast here just so that we can get the motion and then we can go back in later and we can clean it up a little bit and add some detail but that's why you should try to draw with a pencil if you can so you can go back in and make adjustments so basically he is kind of as he's leaning and trying to balance he's got a little bit of an arc in his back and his legs are also bent here and he is keeping his balance on the board. He's got his arms stretched out just like when you're balancing in any normal way, there you go and he is surfing and then you're just going to maybe draw some lines to show the wave which is around him and where he's going and that is how you draw a wave surfer.
