Once you’re done, add any other small details such as more textures and a background. Color if desired in bright colors! Colored pencils are suggested for blending colors.
Draw plump lips using overlapping curved lines. Then, draw medium sized scales using the same overlapping curved lines. It’s useful to do this in rows.
Draw two curved lines above the mouth, connected in a point on each end, to form the eyebrow. Draw another eyebrow, half visible, extending from the side of the face.
Draw two tail fins and a top fin. For the back fins, these should be sideways raindrop shapes. Draw curved lines inside of them to give them texture. Then, add a darker line between each of those back fins to show that there are two fins.
For the top fin, use a half raindrop shape. Add any line design you want inside of this shape!

Scientists have identified over 33,000 different kinds of fish. It is no wonder, then, that fish of all kinds have long been the subject of cartoons and other art forms. From Disney’s hit movie Finding Nemo (2003), to classic children’s books such as Marcus Pfister’s The Rainbow Fish, aquatic characters have entered our hearts as well as mainstream popular culture.

Each step in this drawing guide is accompanied by a detailed illustration. For each picture, new lines added in the current step are highlighted in blue. Lines from previous steps are shown in black. You may want to sketch your lines lightly at first, as you will erase some of the early lines, called guide lines, in order to complete the drawing.
Color your finished drawing. Fish come in every color of the rainbow – you may color your fish yellow and orange as in our illustration, or you can get creative and use your imagination.
Draw a large circle to form the near eye, and a half circle extending from the side of the face to form the far eye.
Extend a long curved line from the short line to the exterior of the circle. Draw another curved line from the bottom of the circle to meet the previous line in a sharp point.
Outline an oval for the body. Then, to the side of the oval, draw eyes and a mouth. Create fins as small, curved lines. Finally, add a small triangle to the end for a tail. Make sure to be creative with your design and don’t forget to add color!
