Drawing mermaids has got to be one of the funnest things to make because you can create your own versions. There is so many ways you can create such a mythical creature but if you are an artist that is just starting out, this may be a difficult task to take on. That is why I wanted to show you "how to draw a mermaid for kids", step by step. Even though the tutorial heading has the 'for kids' in the description, that doesn't mean it's a lesson that is strictly for kids. I just label these types of tutorials in this fashion to encourage folks with limited drawing abilities to learn from something easy. I made sure that the mermaid came out cute, and very pretty. The colors are great as well because she has brightness to her that is only seen in a vivid fish. I do hope that you like learning "how to draw a mermaid for kids", and when you are done with the tutorial be sure to let me know if it was helpful. I have to float out of here because there is still one more submission going up. Adios peeps, and enjoy the rest of your drawing day!
