On the right side of the circle, draw a curved triangle, and then sketch a fishtail onto the end of the bottom triangle. On the sides of the bottom triangle, draw two pointed triangles for the fins, with one larger fin on the back. Draw the shark’s eyes where the circle meets the top triangle, and add a small mark on the snout. Extend the triangle into a toothy smile and erase the excess lines to form your shark!
