How to Draw a Fish for Kids
- Draw the outline of the fish.
The body of the fish is oval in shape. Sharpen the corners around the edges.
- Draw the eye, mouth and scales.
Our fish needs an eye and a mouth. Let’s draw a circle with a black dot in it. The eye is ready. Now draw a small arc at the bottom of the eye, and a dash on top of it. This will be the mouth.
To give our fish something to breathe, we draw gills for it. To do this, draw a vertical arc in the middle of the body. Next, we draw scales for her, it’s not difficult. We just draw semicircles one after another, to the right of the gill.
- Draw the fins.
In order for our fish to move, they need fins. She has two types of them: dorsal and abdominal. Let’s start, at the top draw a tilted rectangle along the body line. And there are three vertical lines in it, with a small interval. This will be the dorsal fin. And the abdominal ones will be located below. To do this, draw the same rectangles. One under the gills and the other closer to the tail.
- Draw the tail.
We just have to draw the tail of our fish. With the help of it, she will be able to swim and turn in different directions. You need to draw a triangle at the very end of the body. And there are two horizontal lines in it. The tail is ready.
- Color in the drawing.
Color in the drawing of the fish. We used gray for the body and orange for the fins. You can choose the same colors or dream up and come up with something different.
