Step 2.

Now you will start drawing out the shape of the dolphins snout and or nose and then the shape of the head, and dorsal fin. When you draw the nose you will have to include a smile line for the mouth.

I will get back on track with another tutorial on a cartoon animal and it is called “how to draw a cartoon dolphin” step by step. The dolphin is probably one of the smartest animals alive on this planet which is why so many boys and girls love learning "how to draw dolphins". The dolphin is a favorite to watch at aquariums, and sea amusement parks like Sea World and so forth.

Anyways this is a perfect lesson for novice artists who are looking to start learning "how to draw animals" in an easy way and still have them look good.
