Nautilus shell Drawing Step by Step

Step 1

The Nautilus is a very interesting underwater creature that has been around for 550 million years! Let’s start with their eyes. Their eye is very primitive, it has no lens. Draw a peg-shaped hole with a line extending down. Then draw a circle around that and a small triangle on top.

Step 2

Now for the hood, create a curved line along the left side and then create another triangle above the eyes. Bring the right edges together by rounding the triangle and adding a few curved lines next to the eyes.

Step 3

To draw the tentacles, draw a nice arc from the eyes down and form a square up towards the hood. Add a few lines for details. Nautilus has ninety tentacles, but none of them have suction cups.

Step 4

For the shell, draw a large circle to cover all the space on the left side.

Step 5

Finally add a few curved lines along the shell for more detail. You can color some brown zebra stripes onto the white crust.
