How to draw Scylla

As you probably know, the team of Drawing For All is very fond of myths and legends, and also very fond of drawing different characters from these myths. Especially we love characters from ancient Greek myths, many of which are already on our website. And today’s lesson on how to draw Scylla will replenish this topic.


Step 1

In this step we will outline the bottom of the skeleton of Scylla. First of all, we sketch a huge circle at the bottom. With the help of light and strongly curved lines sketch the tentacles in the lower part.
