How to Draw a Realistic Sea Lion - Step-by-Step Tutorial

Step 1: Let's start by drawing the head. Draw a square with rounded corners.

Step 2: Draw two oval shaped eyes on either top corners of the head. Draw a dot in the middle of the eyes for pupils.

Step 3: Draw the snout by drawing a semi-circle in between the eyes. Draw a small triangle on the tip of the snout for the nose. Fill in the nose.

Step 4: Draw a bean shaped mouth below the snout. Draw a line on the bottom of the snout.

Step 5: Draw ears on either side of the head next to the eyes by drawing two tiny loops, one on each side.

Step 6: Now we draw the body by drawing a vertical, curved line from the left side below the head. Draw a horizontal curved line going downward from the left side of the upper line. Now draw a curved line starting from the right bottom of the head. Make this line longer than the left one and curve it all the way below the first line making the body wider below the head and narrow at the end. Erase from the bottom middle to leav espace for flippers.

Step 7: Now we draw the flippers. Draw an inverted "L" in the space left at the bottom of the body. Now connect it to the body with a line. Add a few curved lines for detail. Now draw the right flipper by drawing a double-lined "L" on the right side at the bottom of the belly. Make theflipper taper at the end by joining both lines at the end.

Step 8: Draw the tail at the end of the body on the extreme left. Draw a semi-rectangular foot-like shape. Now add five grooves at the bottom for deatail. Add a few curved lines where the tail connects to the body.
