You know I had to at least do a tutorial on an animal of some sorts, or at least on a species that is still a very big mystery. I’m talking about a lesson on "how to draw a giant squid", step by step. As of right now, the giant squid is known to be the biggest living invertebrate on this planet. An invertebrate is an animal that has no vertebrates. What makes these aquatic animals so impossible to study is the complexity of getting to them. They live so far deep at the bottom of the sea, finding samples, or studying their way of life is almost nearly impossible. The last one that researchers ever got to study weighed in at nearly one ton. Along with the intense amount of weight, it was measured in at being fifty nine feet long. Let’s not forget the twenty four foot female giant squid that was caught by Japanese researchers back in 2006. What makes the giant squid different from the regular and colossal squid? If you think about it, nothing much is different, just maybe their SIZE and the areas they call home as they live in the ocean. I didn’t want to make a difficult squid to draw so I went ahead and made an easy to follow version. So what do you say we try out our skills with drawing a giant squid? I bet you’ll like every step of the way to completion. That’s it folks, I hope you enjoyed this drawing day. Peace out and adios!
