Description: Every once in a while I will get amazed when I find that I don’t have a tutorial on the site that I thought I had but I didn’t. So today I will be showing you all "how to draw a sea creature", step by step. Sea creatures can be anything that lives in the ocean whether it is fact or fiction. The creature that I chose to draw is really epic because I could totally picture something like this living under the dark, undiscovered sea. There are literally millions of species and organisms that have not yet been discovered, and for us to sit here and think to ourselves that there is nothing that might look like the sea creature you see before you now, is pretty ignorant. Anyways, the sea creature that you will be drawing today can be tweaked to any look you want. If you want a more fish like species, you can draw the face a bit differently. For me I wanted to mix dolphin with dragon. As you can see the body of the dolphin is very prominent, but the face of a dragon also adds that perfect combination or touch. I hope you guys have fun with drawing my version of a sea creature. I will be back in a bit with more fun for you all to tackle. Peace out people and enjoy!
