Here’s how to draw an easy seahorse with a simple step by step tutorial.

How to Draw an Easy Seahorse

Here are a few fun facts about seahorses:

  • Seahorses are unique in that the male seahorse is the one who carries the young and gives birth. The only other animal who does this is the sea dragon. 
  • They have a swim bladder that is a tiny pocket inside their body.
  • Like other fish, they breathe through their gills.
  • Seahorses are named due to the shape of their head that looks like a horse.
  • There are around 54 seahorse species worldwide.

This seahorse is made from some really simple shapes. It has a cute look that children will love to draw, but still looks pretty realistic so they can learn more about them. It will be a fun addition to any lessons about sea life.

Materials for How to Draw a Seahorse

  • Eraser. Large ones you can hold in your hand do a much better job than just the pencil tips.
  • Black Sharpie Marker. These fine point permanent marker pens make nice black outlines, have a good tip for coloring, and never bleed when they get wet. Use them with good ventilation and add extra paper underneath to protect your tables.
  • Prang Crayons. These are a bit softer than other crayons so they sometimes look like oil pastels. They also have a some nice brown shades that Crayola does not have unless you buy their larger boxes.
  • Crayola Crayons. The reliable brand that always works well. The 24 pack has some of my favorite golden orange and yellow colors that seem a bit richer and warmer than the ones Prang has.
