Depends what you want to show. In a desert you often get the wave thing. On beaches you don't.
There are no ugly colours, only ugly combinations of colours.

But don't forget that wavy sand is often easily recognizable as sand, even if it doesn't make much logical sense to use in every case. Players have grown up seeing the wavy sand texture everywhere in gaming, so it's quite easy for them to recognize and takes minimal skill to create an appealing tile pattern.

like do we represent sand in pixel art by having each tile with waves?

Wave effect sand is realistic but you can make it artistic way different..

Ohh wow! That looks really cool haha

So in deserts I would have wavy sand and for beaches I would have grainy sand?


I gave it a try :D
