Draw Manatee 6

Step 6: Draw another arc-like shape on the left side of the body as a guide for the manatee's tail. First draw a diagonal line, then connect that line to the body using curved lines.

Step 7: Draw the manatee's eye inside the head as a small circle. Shade the inside of the eye except for a tiny circle that represents glare. Add a few lines around the eye for the wrinkles. Curve the lines around the manatee's eye to show that the eye is deep in the head.

Step 8: Use the arc as a guide to draw the manatee's muzzle. Follow the basic path of the guide as you darken the line and give it a few more bumps. Add another curved line that moves toward the inside of the head as the other side of the manatee's grasping top lip. Under the top lip, add a smaller curved line for the bottom lip and chin. Draw a few more curved lines as the folds of skin around the mouth's opening. Draw a small circle on the top part of the manatee's muzzle for the nostril.

Step 9: Add a few short lines around the muzzle for the manatee's whiskers. Use quick, short strokes to add the whiskers. Don't over think it. Just add them randomly.
