How to draw a Sea Lion and a Fur Seal
Let’s learn how to draw a sea lion and a fur sea. You may ask: why two animals at once? I’ll answer honestly: these eared seals are very similar to each other. Sea lions are larger. Perhaps there are other differences,but there need to be a specialist. In General, we will draw the eared seals. They differ from common seals because they have visible auricle( very small and inconspicuous).
Mature males of sea lions and fur seals look very presentable and have a mane.
Well,this one is so powerful, it is undoubtedly a sea lion.

The front flippers are very large and strongly turned outwards.
The rear fins are smaller.
The muzzle is quite a dog, the mouth is opened – a sea lion roaring!
Simple sea lions and fur seals also love to adopt such a posture – wrung from the earth on the front flippers and head up.
Well, here is the second step by step tutorial – how to draw a sea lion/fur seal.

Okay, these were lying sea lions and seals. But unlike common seals that are on land barely crawl on their belly, eared seals know how to WALK. Yes! They use fins as feet and walk well on four legs.
I really like this idea and now we will learn how to draw a walking sea lion.
Although the animal looks almost like a walking fish, bear in mind that the limbs have a common structure, they’re just shortened and hidden in the thickness of the fat.
The fins are turned out pretty weird:
Head held high, muzzle stretched out to the sky:
We have not learned to distinguish between sea lions and seals, but we learned how to draw them.
