Would you like to explore the Italian countryside or live in the ocean like a mermaid? You can live out your wildest dreams with the help of this Luca drawing guide. After all, that's what Luca did.

Luca Paguro is the title character from Disney's animated film Luca. Luca is a shy sea monster who herds fish with his family. Though his family wants to keep him safely away from the humans, he and his friend Alberto run away to pursue their dream of obtaining a Vespa motorcycle.

Along the way, Luca makes additional friends, including Massimo and Giulia. He also discovers that many sea monsters live among the humans - keeping their identities secret by staying out of the rain!

When dry, Luca looks completely human, as in the portrait below. But when wet, he turns green, has reptile-like scales, webbed fingers, and a long tail! If you were Luca, which life would you choose?
