Hi, my name is Alex Cecilio. I'm a Graphic Artist; I'm going to show you how to make waves with Illustrator. So, the first thing that I'm going to to do is go to the line segment tool and hold, holding down shift and I'm just going to click and drag a line out. And here I already have this little blue line. So, now, I'm going to go to effects, distort and transform and twist. And just make sure your preview box is check and then you can start messing with different angles. And so, right now, that is 55 degree angle, but I'm going to hit command Z just to undo it, then go back to effects, distort and transform, twist, try a smaller angle. Let's try the 35. And so, now I've got my wave shape and then, if you wanted to make this more like an actual ocean waves, you can just hold down option and this will make the little, a direct copy of your shape. And then, you can just put it in place and there you've got your ocean waves. My name is Alex Cecilio and this is how to draw waves with Illustrator. Thank you very much.
