STEP 1. Okay lets start this first step with some simple shapes and guidelines. First draw a small circle for the head shape then draw an egg shape for the mid part of the body. You will then make the guidelines for the tail and tail fin.   STEP 2. Now in this next step you will first start shaping out the frame of the body and then add the muzzle and a line for his eye. You will then draw two long lines for the front flippers and then draw out the arch of the back tail. What do you think you will do next? That's right move down to the next step.   STEP 3. As you can see you will start detailing and shaping out the face and jaw. After that is done make a line for the brow and then define the shape of the flippers a bit. You will then add some detailing on the mid part of the body and then finish off the lining of the tail.   STEP 4. Guess what this is? Your last drawing step. You will now start this step by drawing in the eye and then adding more than a few whiskers around the front of the snout. You will then add wrinkle lines at the crease of his flippers and then finish the lining of the flippers. You will then erase all the guidelines and shapes that you drew in step one.   STEP 5. When you are done your sketch should come out looking like the one you see here. All you have to do is add a little color and you are done.
