Aloha everyone, today is going to be such a fun and exciting tutorial day. Instead of submitting hard or complex lessons, I will be uploading a few ‘For Kids’ tutorials that are super cute and really fun. Then I have some new chibi characters that I think you will all love, but to start things off I will be uploading "how to draw an octopus for kids", step by step. These strange sea animals are not usually considered to be the most attractive thing to look at. In fact, they are probably one of the ugliest creatures that live on the bottom of the ocean. Even though they have hideous features, the octopus that you will be drawing is as cute as a button. I really love the way this this drawing came out because it really captures the essence on how an octopus should look when being drawn for kids. The lesson is going to be easy, and really fun. I think by now you guys already know how awesome it is drawing animals for kids by now. Well that’s it, I mean what else can I really say about drawing an octopus for kids except it’s going to be a blast.
