How to Draw a Goldfish for Kids

Artist: Dawn / April 7, 2012

Step 1.

For the first step all you will have to do is draw a circle for the head and body of the goldfish like so.

Step 2.

For step two, all you have to do is draw out the body with the shape of the face, and also include the fins like you see here.

Step 3.

You will now draw the dorsal fin which is located on top of the goldfish's body. When you are done with that, make the shape of the eye as well as the pupil. Add a small dash for the mouth before you leave this step.

Step 4.

For the last step all you have to do is is draw out the goldfish's beautiful tail in a nice flowing motion. Once that is done to your liking you can start cleaning up the drawing so you can color it in later.

Step 5.

Here is the simple goldfish that you just drew. I hope you enjoyed drawing a goldfish using the very simple for kids style.

Description: I'm just gonna throw a goldfish tutorial into the mix because I know a little variety is something that keeps things fresh and exciting. Here is "how to draw a goldfish for kids", step by step. I chose to make this tutorial because I know there are a lot of kids, teens and adults that have a goldfish as a pet. In fact, some people are only allowed to have a fish as a pet, and a majority of fish that are owned as companions are goldfish. When I was growing up as a kid, I must of had at least ten goldfish in my day. That's not including all the Betta fish I had as well. This lesson is of a goldfish swimming from the side which means the angle of this animal is from the side. Have fun with drawing a goldfish in a for kids style folks. I still have two more submissions coming so hang in there still.
