Step 1 - On this image, the sun will be shining into the water from the upper left corner and I start coloring the rays using B52. Sometimes it helps me to put an object at the top corner so the angle of the rays radiate in a natural curvature. Once the first layer of color is applied then I'll remove the object and remember to be consistent on the direction of the rays. For each stroke of the marker, I use the side of the brush tip and always start outside the range of the image then drag in the direction of the ray with a quick motion.
