Let me shy away from those chibi characters for the next two tutorials and talk about an animal that lives in the salty seas. Everybody loves seals and sea lions right? Well how about the walrus. I wanted to submit a lesson on one of the most adorable salt water sea animals that resembled both the seal and the sea lion. You will be getting a free online drawing lesson on “how to draw a walrus step by step”. These animals are really amazing because they are the largest of their species. They are classified as pinnipeds just like their cousins the seal and sea lion. They are recognizable because they are one of the only sea animals that have large tusks, long harsh whiskers, and they make these sounds that make you want to say “oh my god”. That is not the only thing about walruses that is amazing. These animals also grow to be ten to twelve feet long and get as large as two tons for the bulls, and one ton for the cows. I know what your saying, “ I thought you were talking about walruses”? I am, male walruses are called bulls and the females are called cows. They also range in color as well. The walrus can be pink to a cinnamon brown color depending on their habitat. Another cool thing about this animal is that they have four fins, and they are able to walk on all four of them just like a human. You can also tell how old a walrus is by counting the rings that form with age on their teeth, just like a tree. Although these animals may seem like they die from old age because they get to be so large, a majority of the walrus population is killed due to hunting and being the meal of a killer whale or some other large sea water creature. If they manage to keep themselves alive they can grow to be thirty five years old in the wild. I always thought that the walrus was a special and awesome animal. I love how this drawing came out looking because it really shows how innocent these creatures can be. I hope you guys have fun with this tutorial on “how to draw a cartoon walrus step by step”. I have to go but there is more on the way. Peace out folks and happy drawing!
