You can refer to the simple step-by-step drawing guide below
In step one, what you will do is draw out the guides and circles of the walrus. Starting from the far left, draw a circle for the top. Then draw a square circle for the front body. Once you have the shapes drawn, draw the guides for the tail, forelegs, and frills for the mane.
In this step, what you’re going to do is actually draw out the shape of the hippo’s body and tail. Draw the face by sketching the eyes, nostrils, oral mucosa, and ear lines. You will also detail and shape the forelegs by adding definitions such as muscles and body contours. When your sketch looks like the one above, move on to step 3.
Now, in step 3, as you can see, you will outline the details on the fin mane on the hippocampus. Sketch a hairy beard that hangs over your chin like a horse’s face. Make sure you take your time to detail the fins like the mane, it should be in the shape of the fins, and make sure the fins go all the way down the back all the way to the end of the tail. Sketch the structure on the forelegs and outline the frills on the backs of the legs. After you complete all the work needed in this step, erase all the guides and circles that you redrawn in step 1. before moving on to step 4.
And great, this is what your hippocampus will look like when you’re done with your drawing. All that’s left to do is color your Greek mythical creature any color you want. That’s it.
