Hi, my name is Daisy. I'm an artist and I'm going to show you how to draw sea creatures. So we're going to start with a fish, really simple, just a little bit of a squished circle, triangle for the back fin. I'm going to give this one a coiled triangle for the top fin, do a very squished triangle for the front which will be the nostrils and the mouth, little lips, half triangles where the little arm fins would be and then a big circle for the eye. Do some details all through the fish however you like depending on what sort of fish it is. So there's a fish. Another sea creature is a squid which is a long funny looking shape that comes down. His eyes would be here and then he just has lots of tentacles coming down. So this one is a really fun one to draw because you can do whatever you like coming down. And then let's draw a starfish. Starfish are cool because they're really easy to start, let's just draw a really simple star to begin with but that's not a very interesting starfish from the sea, so I'm going to round it out using our basic star guidelines, take out all of the inside lines and then give it some semicircles underneath each little edge that's facing down so we can see it's little suckers and then I'm going to give it some splotches on top because they usually have a bit of texture, little filled in circles, nice and simple. So there we go. My name is Daisy and those are steps to drawing sea creatures.
