How to Draw Orca

Artist: Dawn / March 23, 2011

Step 1.

Start by making a petite oval shape for the top part of the body, and then draw one guideline for the end section of the body.

Step 2.

Here in step two you will sketch out the shape of the head, neck, and back of the body all the way up to the dorsal fin, and flipper. Draw the dorsal fin, and then draw in the flipper.

Step 3.

Finish drawing out the orca's body, and then be sure to draw out the tail fin in a distant manner. Once that is done you will draw the other flipper and then draw in the lining that separates the marking line from the top half of the body, and the un   

Step 4.

Lastly, draw in the spots. Only do this after you have erased the lines and shapes that you drew in step one. Once the guides are cleaned up, you can add some fabulous markings on the orca's body.

Step 5.

You are now all done with this lesson on how to draw orcas.

Description: There is more fun coming your way and now you be given a lesson on another aquatic animal that I have done twice before. Today I am going to show you "how to draw orca", step by step. These aquatic animals are famous for their massive size, black and white markings, and their popularity in aquariums. Even though a majority of people mistake these animals for whales, they are in fact part of the dolphin family. What is neat about the orca is how offspring stay with their mothers and other family members for life. Orca can be found almost anywhere in the world but they prefer to stay in more frigid waters which is usually close to the polar bear and penguin habitats. Drawing an orca is probably one of the more easier animals to draw because they have such bold bodies and simple shapes. One of the things that might be hard to draw is the head and nose. I only say this because when I was a beginning artist, getting that bump perfect with the nose and head was a difficult task for me to overcome. I feel confident that you will be able to "draw orca" in about twenty minutes. You can color in your whale or dolphin using any types of marking patterns you want. I guess that's about it. I will be back maybe later with one more lesson for you all. In the mean time have fun, and be sure to let me know what you think. Adios people!
