How to Draw Fish Bones

Step 1.


Begin with an arched dash for the top of the fish's back.

Step 2.


Next, draw in the skull for the fish's head like so. Notice that the mouth is wide open.

Step 3.


We will fill in the mouth with some sharp teeth like so, then draw in a eye cavity or socket space.

Step 4.


Even fins have bones so you will draw in the pointed, sharp dorsal fins on the fish's back.

Step 5.


Here we will add the tail bones. Notice how the ends are pointed and sharp looking.

Step 6.


Before you finish this drawing, you will need to draw in the pectoral bones.

Step 7.


Lastly, draw in the rib bones like so, and when you do this make sure they are thick and colored in. Erase the mistakes if you made any.

Step 8.


That's it, you are all done. Now you can add some color if you choose, or leave the drawing black and white.

Description: I will take things on a different turn today and upload some lessons on neat tattoo art. I will start with this one on how to draw fish bones, step by step. Over the years I have done a lot of skeletal lessons but none on a fish. The fish you see here can be of a piranha or other species that has a mouth full of sharp teeth. This would make a great tattoo for someone who fishes for a living or hobby, or for someone who loves all sorts of skeleton style art. Animal skeletons can be just as cool as human skulls so why not make one on a fish. I do hope you enjoy this tut, I will return to upload more lessons for you all.
