Things You'll Need

  • Paper
  • Pencil
  • Take your pencil and draw the fish's body by making an egg-shaped oval in the middle of your paper. Make a triangle with rounded corners on the end of your fish's body for the tail. Give the tail a realistic detail by adding lines horizontally across the inside.

  • Draw a fin on the top of your fish by making a small arched line up and wavy line down. Repeat this for the bottom fin.

  • Place another smaller, rounded triangle, pointing towards the same direction as the tail, in the middle of the fish's body. This will make the side fin for your fish.

  • Create the eye by drawing a small circle on the fish's head near the edge. Under the eye, draw a curved line going up for the mouth. Add two sideways curved lines just past the mouth to form the fish's gills.

  • Add a few small circles coming up and out of your fish's mouth for the air bubbles. Your fish drawing is now complete.
