How to Draw a Fish

Artist: Dawn / March 20, 2010

Step 1.

Drawing a fish is going to be easy for you all because you will be learning from Start with a circle shape for the fish's head and then add the facial guidelines. Next draw a small triangular shape for the back end of the fish, and then   

Step 2.

You will now start drawing the actual outlined shape of the fish's head and or body as you see here. Along with the lining you also have to draw the dorsal fin.

Step 3.

Almost done guys! Finish sketching out the body including the tail fin, and pelvic fins, and then draw in a cute little chibi type of mouth.

Step 4.

Lastly, draw out and color in the eyes, and then add some detailing for the fins, and texture definition by adding a few scales like you see here. Erase all the lines and shapes.

Step 5.

Here it is, a incredibly easy and cute drawing that should have come out looking like this for all of you. Hope you had fun drawing a fish guys. Come back and join me again real soon!

Description: This is probably the last cute drawing I will be submitting for a while because to tell you the truth, I am getting a bit burnt out on drawing them. I have to give it a rest for a while before I start back up again, so don't expect to see any cute animals for about a week or so. Anyway, this lesson is going to be on “how to draw a fish”, step by step. I was looking through my fish section, and it came to my amazement that I didn't have a tutorial on just a plain old fish. I have written enough about fishs to explain any further about this specie of animal. All I can tell you is that there are many different types of fish out there in the world. So much in fact, that they are still finding different types everyday. Fish to me are creatures that bring harmonious peace when they swim in a fish tank. I for one have always been fond of saltwater tanks because the fish that reside in saltwater, are tropical. And you know what tropical means right? Colorful, graceful, and vibrant looking fish. Don't get me wrong there is plenty of beautiful freshwater fish too. It's just that, my preference is the saltwater type. When drawing a fish, there is plenty of ways you can choose the specie you want to draw. I chose to do the goldfish since it's the most common in existence, and because I know all of you must have owned at least one goldfish in your lifetime. Anyway, that just about does it for this tutorial on “how to draw a fish”. I will be back shortly with two other lessons on the way so stay tuned in. Peace out people, and have a happy Sunday, or Monday for some of you!
