Step 5: Add the lower front fins and complete the tail section.
Fish are animals that have a live and breathe underwater through a system of gills, with skin that is covered with scales. They usually have a skull and backbone and if they have any limbs, they are in the shape of fins. Fossils of the first ancestors of fish date back over 550 million years!
Step 4: Between the top back line and the bottom belly line draw a tail with two long points. Add two thin triangular fins on the belly and one pointy dorsal fin on the back.

Most fish are cold-blooded, allowing their body temperatures to vary as ambient temperatures change. There are 31,500 species of fish. Fish range in size from the huge 16 metres whale shark to the tiny 8 millimetres stout infantfish.
Nearly all daylight fish have color vision that is at least as good as a human’s. Fish have pain and fear responses.
Step 6: Add the eyes and final fin on the body to complete this simple Fish drawing!

Fish have always been important to humans, not only for food, but also for recreation, such as fishing and collecting for aquariums. Legends of fish have been featured in popular stories and books, including the Hebrew Bible, and they have also been the focus of popular movies that, such as Finding Nemo and Jaws.
Step 3: Draw a round eye with a small dot inside of it at the front of the head. Draw a short curved line up and down between the two longer lines. This is the gill.
There are 32,000 species of fish that can be found in all water environments, from the highest mountain rivers and streams, to the deepest parts of the sea. These fish have a wide array of size, color, behavior and fin shapes.

In this drawing lesson we’ll show you how to draw a realistic Fish in 6 easy steps. This Free step by step lesson progressively builds upon each previous step until you get to the final rendering of the simple Fish.
Fish gather in either shoals or schools. In shoals, fish are loosely grouped and each fish swims and forages for food alone, but near the group. In a school of fish, swim in a tight group, moving at the same speed and in the same direction.
Most all fish lay eggs that develop outside of their mother’s bodies. Some fish are both male and female, or will change between male and female at some point in their life. Because fish are “cold-blooded” animals, their body temperature can change with the temperature of the water they live in.
Out of the thousands of species of fish, only 52 species are commonly consumed by humans. The white shark is the largest fish, being as long as 52 feet. The smallest fish is the stout infantfish, which is only 8 millimeters long.
Most fish that search for food during the day have excellent color vision, much like humans. Even though fish have ears, they cannot hear well, but instead can sense vibrations and movements of things around them.
Fish use landmarks to help them know where they are and where to go, and in mazes fish have exhibited memory skills and visual recognition. While most fish swim through the water, some fish can walk on surfaces and burrow into mud.
Some fish can even glide through the air, above the water, for up to 160 feet!
