Step-by-step: Water Ripples tutorial by naochiko Step-by-step: Water Ripples tutorial by naochiko
I was gonna call this "Water Coloring Tutorial" but then I realized how misleading that title was :iconpapmingplz:
Finished result: Rendezvous by naochiko
I've been getting a lot of requests on how I color water so I decided to make a simple tutorial~ 
I looked at my old tutorials and noticed how wordy I was, so I tried to make this one simple and succinct. Hope this helps!

hnggg---I'm getting all tense knowing that finals are just around the corner //tears :iconlazycryplz:

OMG THANK YOU
I must ask about the first step in the water ripples. Where exactly do you put it and can you use other tools if you're using Paint Tool SAI?

You're welcome! Glad to see that it helps!!
As for the first step, it should be at the very top of all the layers. Also, I used Paint Tool SAI for this so I guess you're more than welcome to use other tools. Do as you see fit! It's good to experiment!

AH I just drew it myself! Just add some quick strokes at a certain direction and it should look straight!
