How to Draw a Betta For Kids, Betta Fish

Artist: Dawn / August 17, 2012

Step 1.

Start by making an oval shape for the entire body of the fish. Also add a guideline through the center too.

Step 2.

Next, draw out the shape of the actual body, then draw in the first ventral fin which is long and slender.

Step 3.

Draw in the other ventral fin, then add the small shape for the pectoral fin. The long fin under the body is actually called the anal fin so draw that out as well. Lastly draw out the large eye shape, then the eyeball.

Step 4.

To finish off the body of the betta, all you have to do is draw out the other two long flowing fins. The top one is the dorsal fin, and obviously the tail fin.

Step 5.

Lastly add all the ribbed lining on each fin like so. This will add texture and definition for the betta that you just made. Erase the mistakes as well as guidelines that you made along the way.

Step 6.

When you're done you should end up with a drawing that looks like the one you see here. Choose a color, then have fun coloring it in.
