The animal you are looking at is in fact a real living species. To my surprise this sea critter is actually a living breathing slug that lives in the waters of the East and South Coast of South Africa, the European waters, the east coast part of Australia, and Mozambique. Today I will be showing you "how to draw a blue sea slug", step by step or for professional terms the Glaucus Atlanticus. These vibrant looking small slugs look like they came from the James Cameron movie 'Avatar'. People have also said that the blue sea slug looks like a Pokemon species because of the finger like tentacles or limbs. Despite what my version looks like in this drawing lesson, the Glaucus Atlanticus has a violent colored hue stripes over a greyish silver body. Their heads are small, but proportionate with their bodies. These critters only grow to be three centimeters. They are a truly amazing species that most people have never seen before. Even the folks that live near their habitats have never come across the blue sea slug. I really enjoyed drawing this fantasy looking animal because it's almost like drawing something from lore that really does exist. I will be back with another amazing species, but this time it will be a plant instead of an animal. Adios people!
