With this tutorial you can draw a shark step by step.
For this drawing, we recommend a hard, easily erasable pencil, an eraser-proof drawing pencil, a ruler and colors.
Take the pencil and draw a straight line across the sheet. Ideally, use a ruler for this.
Above and below the line, draw a slightly curved line. This gives you a streamlined body.
With a few simple strokes you create a fish. Use short curved lines to indicate the dorsal and lateral fins and the tail. In addition, the shark gets its gill slits and the eye sitting on the side.
If you like, you can already start drawing. You give the shark shape by further elaborating the fins and giving the animal an elegantly curved form. The part above the guide is now finished.
Now it's time for the lower part. You dedicate yourself to the opposite ventral fin and the smaller fins. You finish drawing the tail. In addition, your shark gets its slanted backward mouth with the teeth.
We draw the last detail! The shark gets a side line that runs just above the snout and across the belly. The template shows you the position.
You erase the pencil lines and the finished shark sketch is in front of you!
Now color comes into play. Color the belly with the mouth area light blue. The back is medium and dark blue. Take a close look at the template. Some areas are colored lighter, others darker. The darker areas are in the shadow, the lighter ones in the light. You will also notice irregular white strokes at the top of the spine that simulate the reflection of light. Follow the instructions to create a vivid image.
