How to Draw a Sea Monster

***tier-3-top.shtml*** Sea Monster

One of the coolest mythological beasts - is the classic sea monster. Like a cross between a dragon and a snake, the one depicted here is both easy and fun to draw - as you'll very soon see!

I'm wondering what kind of interesting looking creature you're going to come up with...

First Step - A Horizontal Line for the Sea - and then...

Because it lives (and would probably be seen) in the sea - it makes sense to focus on only the top parts of this monster, those parts that are sort of 'looping' out of the ocean.

Here, I've used a simple horizontal line to allow us to focus more so on these parts...

And yes - the cross over the head circle helps to visualize the angle/look of the creature's head early on in the drawing.

Remember - this is just my version. Add more humps, a longer neck - a long crocodile like snout... horns... wings... turn it into a robot. Yes - get creative!



Second Step - Here's How It takes Shape!

To begin, go ahead and sketch in the waves/ocean - about the horizontal line from your guideline. Two layers of 'spikes' will help to give your drawing a bit more of a 3Dish look.

Here's how things progress...

Colored and all - this is quite the sight! Of course - any sea monster would be. :-)

Well, hopefully now - you've got a whole new perspective on just how simple - drawing a cool-looking creature like this can be. Hope you enjoyed the lesson.
