Another fantasy tutorial on the way for you all, and I know you will all like it. Yesterday I drew some really cool stuff while I was live and now I am about to submit them to you. I will show you "how to draw a mermaid step by step". Now even though we know mermaids to be a fantasy creature, the truth is they are actually creatures of Greek mythology. I wrote so much already with my other tutorials on mermaids that I am at a lose for words now. I guess I can tell you that I liked drawing out this mermaid, I think it is the best one I have uploaded to date. I mean the other mermaids that I drew were done so long ago and they are all so very…premature. I have gotten so much better at drawing over the past two years since DragoArt has been alive, that it is so plain to see the difference in my work when I look back on it. Back then I thought I was doing a great job, and for a fourteen year old I guess I was. But anyway, as you know this mermaid that you will learn how to draw may look hard, but it is really quite easy. If you follow the steps the way I lay them out, and take your time drawing her, you will have a blast with this lesson. Well, that’s it. I will leave you now to this tutorial on “how to draw a mermaid step by step”. Have fun people and keep on drawing to your hearts content.

Okay start this step with some easy basic shapes and guidelines. Draw a circle for the mermaids head and then add the facial guidelines. Next draw the guidelines for her arms, shoulders, and hands. You will then draw another shape for her torso and then connect the lining for her long mermaid tail.
