How to Draw a Dolphin for Kids

Artist: Dawn / January 26, 2011

Step 1.

Start by drawing the shape of the dolphins body which looks very much like a large slanted tear drop.

Step 2.

Using the guide, begin drawing out the shape of the dolphin's head, nose, and neck.

Step 3.

Draw and color in the eyes, and then draw a cute small smile line like so.

Step 4.

You can now draw out the fins, and more of the dolphins body until the entire underbelly is drawn out.

Step 5.

Now start drawing out the dorsal fin, and the back end of the dolphin's body until you get near the end where the tail will be placed.

Step 6.

All you need to do now is draw out the tail, and you are all done drawing your dolphin for kids. Don't forget to erase the lines and shapes you drew in step one.

Step 7.

Look how easy and cute this water dwelling mammal is. Now you can have even more fun coloring it in. Thanks you guys for joining me with another tutorial in the "for kids" collection.
