STEP 1. The first step to drawing a lake is drawing the guidelines for the ground and scenery. Start by drawing out two solid ground sides as you see here and then draw a line in the background that ends or begins your lake.   STEP 2. Now that you have the guidelines drawn for the land and water, you can start sketching in the foliage that surrounds your pretty lake. I sketched in a bunch of pine trees and that is the beginning guidelines you see here. Once your tree guidelines are drawn in you can start detailing the surroundings to add texture to the ground.   STEP 3. You will now start sketching out the guidelines for the mountains that will set as the background for you lake. Of course you can choose to draw something else as a background, but for me I drew some nice high, bold mountains. Once your background guidelines are drawn out you can move to the next step.   STEP 4. All you have to do here is sketch out all the detailing that mountains have to emphasis on the texture of these rocky hills. Once you have done that, you can start erasing all the guidelines and shapes that you drew in step one to prepare your scenery for color. As you can see, I left the tree shapes as spiked hills because it would be a lot easier for teh artist to draw in what he or she wants or greenery.   STEP 5.
