I drew this non-existant waterfall for the latest page update of my weekly serial webcomics – Lovarian Adventures. Click on the thumbnail to zoom in.

It took me a while to get this done. But not because actually drawing it was hard. What really took time was the research I had to do. I wanted to know what actual waterfalls look like and I wanted to base my waterfall off of those. In the end though, none of the waterfall photos I’ve seen match the type of waterfall I wanted for the scene. Either they were too big (like the Niagra Falls) or too small. So, I just put combined aspects I needed from the different waterfall photos I’ve seen into this one.

The other thing that slowed me down was figuring out how to render a waterfall in line art form. Thankfully, I own the book titled Drawing Scenery: Landscapes and Seascapes by Jack Hamm. That book helped me immensely in figuring out how to render real life scenery stuff for my webcomics.

Anyway, I hope it turned out okay. I drew this using mechanical pencils (a 0.5 and a 0.9). I then scanned it on to my PC and added the shading and mist in Painter later.
