Begin by drawing a simple knob shape for the head of the koi.


Next, draw in a large eye, then color in the pupils. Draw the curled whiskers as well as the first fin. Make sure that you detail your fin too.


Next, draw out the slightly arched body, then draw the tail fin, as well as the dorsal fin like so.


Lastly, erase the mistakes you may have made, then draw in the detailing for the fins, as well as add some scales for the body.


Here is your koi fish ready to be colored in. Choose vibrant, crisp colors when you begin tackling the coloring process.
