How to Draw Jellyfish, Jellyfish

Artist: Dawn / January 21, 2012

Step 1.

Since you will be drawing a few jellyfish, you will need to make three circle shapes for head head of the fish. As you can see the jellyfish on the sides are a bit smaller.

Step 2.

Begin sketching out the actual shape of the first or middle jellyfish's top part of the body. As you can see there is a lip like edging for the rim of the body.

Step 3.

Here you will draw out four oral arms. These are not the tentacles of the jellyfish, they are called oral arms. The tentacles are actually located along the rim of the head.

Step 4.

Start drawing the left jellyfish and when you do this, you will draw it in the exact same manner as you did the first one.

Step 5.

Again, draw the oral arms and as you can see there is four.

Step 6.

Again, draw another jellyfish the same way you did the other two.

Step 7.

Finally, draw the arms once again, and when you are done begin erasing your mistakes to clean u your work and prepare it for color.

Step 8.

Here is the finished line art when all is said and done. Now you can color in your jellyfish.

Description: So it seems that I've never done a tutorial on just a pair of jellyfish, which are sorta similar to the jellyfish from Spongebob. I've made these guys very simple to draw so anyone could go through this tutorial in a breeze. These types of creatures come in all sorts of shapes and colors that it's pretty mind bottling. Make sure you get yourself a few shading pencils so you can add various markings to stylize each one. I chose a purple background to contrast against the bright pinks. Anyways guys, I'll be moving onto my other tuts would be pretty fun for ya'll! So have fun with drawing jellyfish, and stay tuned for more awesome tutorials, especially the next one which is based on a popular kickace singer. Peace out and let me know how you did!
