The space under the ocean waves is a truly wonderful place, packed with stunning beauty and breathtaking views. Amongst these are seaweed and coral, and we are going to learn how to bring these essential elements of the sea to life in just a few short, simple steps – let’s get started.
Step-By-Step Images and Instructions
Begin your drawing with a black pen, and draw two curved leaves, one beside the other, at the top of your page. Next, add two more leaves above this.
Repeat this with a bunch of three leaves at the bottom, and then add two curves to the bottom, heading towards the bottom of the page.
Add a leaf to either side of these curves, and extend the bottom line down slightly.
Now, draw a curved, “diamond” shape to the right of this.
Add a curved “7” shape to the right of this, and then add another leaf to the bottom left, extending the bottom line down slightly.
Next, add another, angled leaf to the right of this, and another large leaf to the bottom.
Add three small leaves to the bottom of this, angling these towards the right of your page.
Add another “7” shape to the left of this, and then add a circle to the left.
Add another leaf to the left of this bunch, just below the top of the right section. Bring a curved line across to the left, take it down, and then angle it towards the bottom right-hand corner of the page.
Add three more leaves to the left of the bunch beside this…
Bring a long, thin stick down from the bottom of the circle, and then add two more small circles to the right of this.
Now, use a black fineliner to bring a curved line across to the left, take this to a point, and then bring a curved line across to the right.
Now, add a small circle to the right of this, and add a series of small petals around this.
Repeat this shape twice more, one to the left and one below.
Add another two flowers to the left…
And follow this with another couple of flowers below this.
Now, bring a curved line across just above the bottom curve, and add another curve below this. Add two angled, curved lines to the right.
Bring another curved line across to the right, and add three short lines to the top, and one to the bottom.
Now, add a series of small black dots all across this bottom section.
Draw several small circles all across the left and top of these shapes…
Next, add a series of parallel lines to the bottom of each circle, connecting these to the shape at the bottom.
Add a small circle inside each of these top ones…
And then add curved frames inside each of the leaves.
Now, grab a brown pen. Shade the center of each of the flowers, and the center of each of the right sections of circular shapes.
Add color to the petals of the flowers with a yellow pen…
And then use a green pen to shade the leaves.
Use a brown pencil for the shape at the bottom…
And use the yellow pen for the shapes on the right of the circular section.
Shade the remaining inner circles with a blue pen…
And then fill in the rest of these shapes with the same bright blue pen.
And there we have it – an amazing underwater world, ready to explore and learn more about – there are plenty of secrets to uncover!
