How to Draw Seahorses

Step 1.


Go ahead and draw out the shapes and guides for the two seahorses you are about to draw.

Step 2.


Using the head guides go ahead and draw out the actual shapes and structures to each seahorse head. The frills in the back part of the head design should also be created as well.

Step 3.


Make the shapes for the eyes.

Step 4.


Draw out the snouts or muzzles for both seahorses as well as the detailing around the eyes and along the frills.

Step 5.


We will draw out their odd S shapes bodies and make sure their tails have a nice tight curl at the ends. Draw in the pattern to their bodies to create that uneven, bumpy texture. Once that is done give these seahorses some heart.

Step 6.


We will now draw the frills on their backs which almost look like wings and then more frills on the backs of their heads.

Step 7.


For the last step you will draw in the definition to the wings or fins and then begin cleaning up the drawing by erasing the mistakes and guides.

Step 8.


That's it, you are all done. Now you can go ahead and color in the drawing.

Description: In this lesson I will be showing you how to draw seahorses or seahorse love, step by step. I don't really make lessons on the seahorse but since these critters don't get nearly as much love as they should, I wanted to bring them back into the spotlight so other folks and artists would take notice to these wonderfully odd animals. The seahorse is a sea dweller and when they mate, they mate for life. It is actually the male seahorse that carries the babies, and brings them into the world. I think that is one of the most fascinating things to this species of animal made by the great man himself. I do hope you fall in love with this lesson on how to draw seahorses, step by step. I will be back with some other cool tuts in a bit so stay tuned in.
