Artist: Dawn / January 23, 2012

Step 1.

Draw a circle shape and then that's it.

Step 2.

You will now draw out the actual shape of the box jellyfish, and you notice how the shape is not perfectly rounded. This is because box jellyfish have box shaped bells, or heads.

Step 3.

The next thing you will do is draw in the vein like lines inside of the jellyfish's body. The ends of the lines are caped with small bulb like tips.

Step 4.

Continue to draw in more if the inner body detailing which is a mass of veiny lines.

Step 5.

Now that you are on the last step, all you have to do is draw out the tentacles, and as you can see they look like strands of fine and thick hair. Clean up the drawing and you are done.

Step 6.

Here is your line art when you are all done. Color in your box jellyfish and you're done.

Description: I have one more aquatic species that has one big, bad reputation. It’s not a shark from the murky waters off the tropical coast, and its certainty not a killer whale with an insatiable appetite. Instead I’m talking about a translucent species that has delicate tentacles, and the power to kill a human being. Up next, I will show you "how to draw a box jellyfish", step by step. Box jellyfish are so venomous, they can literally send a victim in shock because the toxins that box jellyfish transmit, attack the nervous system, the heart, and even the skin. Humans that get stung by a box jellyfish will suffer extreme pain, and if someone is not with the person that gets attacked while in the water, you can be sure that the victim will die. People who survive a box jellyfish attack can go through excruciating pain for several weeks on end. These particular jellyfish grow to be about ten feet long, weight almost five pounds, but they have very, very short lifespans which is almost one year. One of the only animals that are not affected by the box jellyfish are sea turtles. Sea turtles actually eat box jellyfish on a regular basis. Anyway, the tutorial should be fun to tackle because you will be drawing a box jellyfish that is not only dangerous, but it can also look very beautiful. I will return maybe later today, or tomorrow with some other cool stuff. Later guys and enjoy!
