How to draw a jellyfish(medusa)
Let`s learn how to draw a jellyfish. This animal is also called medusa.
Jelly-fishes diverse in appearance and have a very strange structure and lifestyle.
Jelly-fish drawing – lesson 1
The body of a jellyfish has a shape of an umbrella, or it resembles a mushroom cap or even a luxury shade.
This dome contains all the internal organs of the jellyfish.The mouth is in the middle opened down and it is surrounded by tentacles.
The tentacles can be for various purposes(hunting and stinging) and their forms are different.
Hmm. In appearance, these tentacles remind not so octopus, but worms. But I didn’t make anything up – here’s a picture from the Internet, through which we learned to draw Medusa.
Since jellyfish look diverse, then let’s draw another one.
And it’s not common, but a real immortal jellyfish – Turritopsis Nutricula!
Jellyfish drawing lesson 2
Medusa turitopsis nutricula is the only truly immortal living creature on Earth. When its life cycle ends, it sinks to the bottom and again turns into a polyp, and then back into a jellyfish.
Draw a dome body:
Tentacles hang from the dome as thick bushes.
And now we’ll redo this picture in the photo editor and give it a mysterious appearance of an immortal creature.
How to draw a Jellyfish – lesson 3
Meet another widespread medusa – it looks quite typical for jellyfish – also a dome-umbrella, and instead of a handle, a bunch of tentacles.
When drawing the dome, try to maintain symmetry, and for this you need to draw an axis and compare the resulting halves.
Well regards tentacles, they look like something strange.
Further more add an even longer fringe:
So we got the “jellyfish drawing”. But it looks some rustic. But look, a couple of mouse movements in the photo editor – and the jellyfish turned into a glowing extravaganza:
I hope now it will not be difficult for you to draw a jellyfish.
