Hey guys, Chris here and today I'm going to show you how to draw a waterfall in 3D. First, I'm actually going to start off with is maybe there's a couple rocks that are in the water cause those are going to be in the foreground and the way I'm going to do that is just kind of just like that and maybe throw in a little bit of shading there and maybe there's another one, a bigger one like a boulder on this side, kind of do some shading in there and some shading on that side, maybe you got some smaller guys here. Alright, now you got to take your handy-dandy blue, blue marker or blue tool, whatever you have handy and right now what I'm doing is just kind of drawing a couple ripples going out from the, from where the boulders are to just kind of show that there's water around and now we're going to start off with the waterfall. I'm going to start up here, that's going to be, you can make the waterfall however long you want but I'm going to draw a horizon line at the top and then I'm going to do an arc that goes down just to like look, so it looks like it's going behind a boulder and the same thing on the other side and then you're just going to fill that in doing lines if you have a, if you have a couple different shades of blue you can do that as well. The darkest shades are going to be the ones that are going to be underneath and the lightest ones are going to be up front cause those are the ones that the light is hitting. So you can still as many of those as you want, just kind of keep, keep going so it looks like it's a pretty full waterfall and then you can put a couple waves kind of in here at the bottom and then you can't forget the mist so you're just going to do some sparse kind of lines showing where the mist is at going all around and then maybe you want to throw in some highlights as well and you can also make it a double waterfall if you want just by doing lines up like this and maybe there's a couple boulders up here as well, and then if you want you can also add a little bit of green in there, maybe there's some algae or something along the water line and that's up to you, maybe there's some flowers too underneath the jungle scene, kind of make it however you want. Alright guys, and that's how you do a waterfall in 3D so good luck and stay creative.
