Okay, so I'm literally almost done uploading all the lessons that I made yesterday. Here is another animal tutorial that some of you may, or may not be familiar with. Up next I will show you "how to draw a leopard seal", step by step. These seals come from the Antarctic, to sub-Antarctic waters. The leopard seals get their names from the small spotting that their coats have. Now just because this animal is a 'seal', that doesn't mean they are friendly critters which is what most people think they are. Leopard seals are actually considered vicious predators that have a strong drive to hunt and feed. Their diets consist of seals, fish, and squid. They will hide themselves under the water beneath ice cliffs. If they are in the right spot, they can get a couple birds from the sea for a snack. Leopard seals can grow to be as big as eleven feet long, and eight hundred forty pounds. Their life expectancy is anywhere between twelve and fifteen years. Anyway, I wanted my tutorial of the leopard seal look fierce like their personalities really are instead of a sweet looking seal with a smile on it's face, I do hope you enjoy drawing a leopard seal, at least you learned something new today about an animal species.
