Water Drawings

While working in production alongside the visual FX team on Ice Age 4: Continental Drift at BlueSky Studios, I was inspired to draw water in motion. Since they were animating a great deal of water visual effects, I wanted to investigate their process through another medium. Here are some samples of that journey.
