Beach Scenes: Sand, Waves and Seafoam! by ClemiKinkajou Beach Scenes: Sand, Waves and Seafoam! by ClemiKinkajou
I was asked to make up a short tutorial on how I paint/draw beach scenes so I made it up tonight.

There's really not much else I can explain on this, other than look at reference images of beaches. There's MILLIONS out there. Just practice really to get it looking right. <3


FAQs:
What program do you use to color/shade all your pictures? I use Photoshop CS2 for all my digital coloring needs. Nothing else. X3

So you have a tablet? What type of tablet do you use? I do have a tablet. I have a DigiPro 3"x4" graphic's tablet. This is a generic brand of tablet that I got a couple years ago for only $14 brand new off of eBay. You do NOT have to break your bank to get a decent tablet. It's not the most amazing tablet out there, but it suits its purpose perfectly. ^^

Its awful, but its only just occured to me to link my art back XD. This is a great tutorial; really easy to follow and a life-saver, since the sea, or specifically the surf on a beach, has always killed me.

I managed this - [link] , and its pretty much thanks to your tutorial - so thank you so much for sharing it!

Aww I'm so glad it helped it turned out great! ^^ I'm glad it helped you ^^

For a minor suggestion for next time you try this, try adding some extra dots outside the main line on the surf for splatter from splashing. ^^ And try to fade the squares coming off the surf <3

It definitely did :D

And thanks so much for the tips! I get what you're saying - I think I was too thrilled with the sand and forgot about extra details for the sea XD. And yes, the squares are pretty whacked out :facepalm:

Thanks again!

That was fantastic and not overly complicated! I would be interested in more landscape painting tutorials.. if you ever decide you are bored and want to do them! I have a horrible time with landscapes and backgrounds.

I really wouldn't know what other landscapes to do. x3 I only did this one cause someone asked specifically for it.

Oh you know, forest clearing, farm, countryside, universe-ish, streams, brooks, rivers etc etc. Lol I try to use reference pictures and I can never begin to figure out how to make something do what I want.

It really is that simple when you break it down into pieces. Larger scenes obviously take more time, but involve the same simple steps. ^^
