Helpful drawing tips
Use paint or crayons, whatever is easiest.
The are some great online websites where you can get hints on how to draw a sea creature. Here's a few examples, but there's many more:
Crazy Arms and the ocean
As Aussies, the beach and the ocean are really important parts of our life. However, Crazy Arms connection goes deeper than that. The unique fabric is made from regenerated nylon waste, like ghost fishing nets. These nets are a huge hazard to marine life, and need to be recovered from the ocean floors. Light-weight, and soft to the touch, the ECONYL® fabric also has great UV properties. Tested by ARPANSA, the government body, it has been awarded the highest rating UPF 50+ which means it blocks at least 98% of all UVB and UVA rays.
Fun designs with a purpose
No surprise either that some of the best-selling Crazy Arms have an ocean connection. “Mermaids” are one of the top sellers.
The “Dolphin” design is popular too, where we make a donation to healthyseas.org (the divers responsible for the ghost net recovery) for every purchase.
