How to draw a common seal

Let`s learn how to draw a Seal.

In addition to common seals, there are eared. But today we are going to draw those seals whose ears are completely invisible. The seals are marine animals. Living in the cold seas they are well adapted to low temperatures: they have warm fur and powerful fat deposits under the skin. They are great swimmers, hunting fish. But on land, seals are clumsy and either lie, or crawl on their belly.

Our first tutorial will be on how to draw a seal lying on the shore.

Seal looks very simple: a small head, a thick “cylindrical” torso, tapering to the tail, the legs turned into flippers. Like… fish. It is understandable – these animals are perfectly adapted to life in water.

Both front and rear limbs of seals are very shortened – out of the thick fat protrude only the hands and feet. But they are developed very much and really resemble fins. The tail of the seal is tiny and almost not visible between hind flippers .

The head is small with a flattened skull and low forehead. The eyes arevery large, but short-sighted. The nostrils look like two slits, thick and long moustache and smiling mouth – a very simple appearance.
