Step 6: Draw a smaller arc on the lower, left side of the seal's body as a guide for the first front flipper. Draw this arc the same way. Make a small mark first, then connect it to the body using curved lines. Draw another small arc on the bottom, closer to the middle of the body, as a guide for the second front flipper.
Step 7: Draw a final small, thin arc on the right side of the body as a guide for the harp seal pup's hind flippers.
That's it for the guides! From this point on, press harder with your pencil for a more defined drawing.
Step 8: Lightly sketch the eyes inside the seal pup's head as two small circles. Use the initial lines as guides for size and placement of the eyes. When you get the size and placement right, darken the lines. Inside each eye, draw a couple of tiny circles to represent glare.
Shade the harp seal's eyes using a dark value. As you shade the eyes, make sure to not overlap the tiny circles. Add a couple of curved lines around each eye for a bit of bare skin. Don't draw these lines too far away from the eyes. Shade this bit of skin as well using a dark value.
Step 9: Inside the muzzle, lightly sketch an oval for the nose. When you get the shape and placement right, darken the top by using short strokes. Darken the sides and draw a curved, vertical line through the middle. Make the bottom part longer so that it will connect to the mouth. Add two thin slits inside the shape and shade them in for the nostrils. Shade in the rest of the seal's nose too. As you shade, use a value that's only slightly darker than the nostrils.
