simple water surface tutorial (paint tool sai) by Bootsii simple water surface tutorial (paint tool sai) by Bootsii
YAY my first tutorial! Thanks for all the +favs :dummy:

Make SURE if you want to add the final duplicate modes at the end you COMBINE ALL THE LAYERS FIRST. Otherwise you'll screw up somewhere along the way. Even if you're just wanting to reduce the amount of layers to ONE, follow the method below!

CORRECT:
:pointr: Merge blue splotchy layer down to body of water
:pointr: Delete the now empty middle layer
:pointr: Merge the white splotchy layer down to blue splotchy body of water
:pointr: Delete the now empty top layer

INCORRECT:
:pointr: White splotchy layer down to blue splotchy layer
:pointr: White + blue splotchy layer down to body of water
:pointr: Deleting the empty top and middle layer

The incorrect way will ruin your white splotchy layer mode and your blue splotchy layer opacity. If you have any questions or you run into any problems, do ask!

the following deviations of mine are as shown--

AAA I'm really glad it helped, thanks a lot for letting me know though, it makes me so happy QvQ
Honestly, I can't even remember how I did it... I think I shaded it like this image of mine here
november 10th change [original] by Bootsii  and then after adding the texture it's pretty much finished Drowning [speedpaint] by Bootsii
Looking at it now, since the deviation is a little older, I can see all my mistakes and how I could've made it better but that's the gist of it ^^; Using a line tool to create long Vs and then blurring them, erasing them a little, et cetera.

oh WOW you did such an outstanding job *A* AMAZING.

I was actually thinking of updating it because I thought it might be a little too hard to understand (I think I still will to clear up some things) but I'm so glad to know you think so ;V;
