We are very excited to add another sea creature drawing instructions tutorial to our growing collection.

We had fun learning how to draw a dolphin a few days ago, so now let’s move on to another marine mammal, this time the biggest one.

As this is a tutorial for kids and beginners I thought a cartoon whale would work best and I think this is one of the easiest ways to draw one.

Your kids may think it is difficult to draw, but once they follow the steps, they will be able to draw a whale by themselves in no time. And once they master this pose, they can draw different poses and backgrounds and further develop their drawing style.
