Description: Well I thought I was going to be gone for the day but I found two tutorials left in my vault that just needed to be submitted. In this next drawing lesson I will be showing you how to draw Gary the snail from SpongeBob Squarepants step by step. Now everyone knows this snail from the popular Nickelodeon animated series SpongeBob Squarepants. Gary is a delightful little pet that is pink and green in color with big round snail like eyes. He moves slow but not that slow and he often leaves a trail of snail slim behind him when he is excited from being happy or nervous. SpongeBob absolutely loves his darling pet snail unconditionally. I mean even when he thought that Gary wanted to be with Patrick instead of him, he still tried to get his loved pet back. Of course the tears that SpongeBob shed for Gary in that episode was wasted because the only reason why Gary wanted to be with Patrick is because he had a cookie in his back pocket. Gary may be a snail in appearance, but inside he is all cat. For a sea critter you would think that naturally he would make some sort of bubbly nose or something right? But no, that is not the case when it comes to Gary the snail. Instead he communicates by meowing and he also has a full set of teeth. There was an episode when Squidward bought a female pet snail for the snail race competition which SpongeBob almost forcefully signed Gary up for. That was totally hilarious especially when Gary kept getting flat tires. That was a sweet episode, there is so many different episodes to choose from it really is hard to label one particular show that I could call my favorite. In this lesson you will learn how to draw Gary the snail from SpongeBob Squarepants step by step. I will be back in a jiffy folks with one more tutorial from my secret vault of sketches in a bit so stay tuned kiddies.
