Hi, I'm Al Krakosky and I'm an artist. Today, I'm going to show you how to draw a halibut. You start off by drawing a curve starting at the front of the mouth, curving up and down leading to the tail. The mouth is going to curve down and go up a little bit and draw the bottom part of the mouth and then down, up a little bit, back down, save a little opening there and then curve to the back. We'll draw in the tail, come out a little bit and then curve up, then curve down and connect the two points. So there's the outline of the fish and at the top here, they have this fin that goes across the entire top. It almost looks like a Mohawk. They have another one on the bottom and then a little one coming out of this opening we created earlier and the fin, little fine right there, its eye, draw a little circle and then we'll outline the mouth, make the fish lips, the bottom and top. Then we'll draw it some gills, then we'll add some texture onto these fins, draw some vertical lines going down across the entire one on top and one on the bottom, do the same thing for the back, then this little fin here, this one here and you can't forget they have another eye above this eye. It's pretty strange. And we'll add some texture, random dots, maybe even some scales and for this texture, I'm just doing that. Just do that in random spots, get a scale texture and the last thing, the last thing we're going to do, add some bubbles to show that he is underwater and that's it. That is how you draw a halibut. Thank you for watching and keep on drawing.
