Description: What is the ugliest fish or animal that lives on this planet? If your guessing it's the fish in this lesson, you're right. Yesterday, I was searching for some cool fish that are popular, and I also wanted to draw a fish I did not have. For my fourth installment I will show you "how to draw an Anglerfish", step by step. I know what you're thinking, “what the heck is an anglerfish”? Well, these creepy looking sea creatures live lonely dark lives at the bottom of the Atlantic and Antarctic oceans. Even thought these fish live as far as a mile down below the sea, they can also be found in shallow waters too. You would think that a fish this ugly, is the only of it's kind right? Wrong. The fact is, there is over two hundred species of Anglerfish in existence. Some of these species grow to be more then three feet long, but most of the time they grow no more than a foot or so. What makes this creature so popular and well recognized? It's the dorsal spine that is only equipped by the females of this species. There is a long curled dorsal spine that hangs above the head near the mouth that resembles a fishing pole and lure. The brightly lit ball of flesh, helps lure in other fish for this carnivore to feast on. What else is so great? How about the amount of teeth that are in this fish's mouth. Anglerfish have razor shape, long translucent teeth that are used to chomp down hard on their prey. The head and mouths alone are much greater than the rest of their bodies, and because of this, they are able to eat prey that is twice their size. Now remember, only females have the built in fishing pole, males are much smaller, and have to work harder to eat. I personally think that even though this fish is one ugly mother, it's also very cool looking at the same time. I think you will enjoy teaching yourself "how to draw an Anglerfish", using this step by step drawing lesson. I will be back with my last tutorial for you all, so try and stay tuned in to see what fish I will upload next. Peace out peeps.
