How To Draw A Narwhal

1. Begin by drawing a circle. This will form the narwhal’s head.

Step 4: Draw a long line on the left side of the head as a guide for the narwhal’s tusk. The length of this line will determine the length of the tusk, so draw yours as long or as short as you’d like.

For the first few steps, don’t press down too hard with your pencil. Use light, smooth strokes to begin.

4. Using two curved lines, enclose the two lobes of the tail.

9. Finish off your narwhal with added cuteness. Draw small circles above the head for bubbles. Draw an oval under each eye to indicate blushing cheeks. Draw a heart on the flipper, and small curved lines above each eye for eyelashes.

Step 5: Draw a series of lines that connect the major shapes to form the rest of the narwhal’s body. Draw two short lines on the left for the neck and two longer lines on the right for the body.

7. Use a curved line to draw each pectoral fin, or flipper. The flippers should be roughly like a curved triangle with a rounded tip.

Narwhals travel in groups ranging in size from five animals to several thousand. They migrate yearly, from warm summer waters to feeding grounds beneath northern pack ice in winter. Like dolphins, narwhals communicate using clicks and other sounds. Individuals can live to be 50 years of age.

8. On the top of the narwhal’s head, draw a tall, narrow triangle with rounded points. This forms the whale’s spiral horn, or tusk. Band the horn with curved lines to indicate the spiral.

The narwhal, however, is no myth. It is a species of whale found in the Arctic region. It is a toothed whale, similar to dolphins and orcas. Unlike dolphins, the narwhal has no dorsal fin. The whale grows to 16 feet in length and weighs more than 3,000 pounds. The long, hollow tusk, which can be taller than a person, occurs only in males and is used in mating displays in which males appear to fight, called “tusking.” The tusk also has sensory organs that tell the whale about its surroundings, and can be used to stun fish with a slap when hunting. Rarely, an individual may have two tusks.

Another legend from the Inuit says that a woman hunting with a harpoon was dragged into the water. She was turned into a narwhal, and her hair, which she wore in a spiral, was transformed into the narwhal’s tusk. Narwhals have also been mentioned in famous literary works, such as Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea by Jules Verne and Moby Dick by Herman Melville.

6. Draw a curved line above each eye to indicate eyebrows. Then, draw a “U” shaped curve between and below the eyes to form the smiling mouth.

5. Draw two large circles to form the eyes. Within each eye, draw two small ovals of different sizes. These add a sparkle of cuteness to the eyes.

Would you like to draw a cute cartoon narwhal? Now you can, with the help of this easy, step-by-step drawing tutorial. All you will need is a pencil, a sheet of paper, and an eraser. You may also wish to use colored pencils, crayons, or markers to color your finished picture.

Step 2: Draw another circle on the left side as a guide for the narwhal’s head. This circle should be small too. Don’t place it too far away from the big circle.

Step 3: Draw two intersecting lines inside the head to help you place the narwhal’s facial features later on.

Step 1: Draw two circles as guides for the narwhal’s body. The circles don’t have to be perfect. They’re just guides. Narwhals’ bodies are pretty long, so don’t draw the circles too close to each other. The circle on the right should also be smaller.

2. Extend two lines from the circle in a curved triangle shape; the lines should not touch. This outlines the whale’s body and tail.

What is a narwhal? Many people have never before heard of this unique creature from the sea. In fact, when ancient peoples found its bony, spiraled tusk, or tooth, lying on the beach, they were inspired to dream up such fanciful creatures as the unicorn. In Medieval times, these horns were prized, assumed to have magical powers and were worth more than their weight in gold.

10. Color your narwhal. In the wild, narwhals are whitish in color with mottled black or brown spots on the back. Would you like to give her some more cetacean friends? Doing so is easy and fun when you use our whale and dolphin drawing guides.
