Hiya! Japanese Illustrator Mom, Koko. Thanks for stopping by!
Today we’re going to draw a SHARK!
We’re drawing more like cute Japanese style, meaning he’s got a big eye 😉
This is the finished version
and this is how I colored.
Let’s get started! Remember, there is a VIDEO you can watch, too!
How to Draw a SHARK
Step 1. Let’s start from Shark’s mouth. Draw a slightly curvy line.
Step 2. Then draw his head – a half of it.
Step 3. Let’s finish mouth – by drawing the lower part.
Step 4. Then we draw his body….the line goes down and up
Step 5. Draw lower body part, but DO NOT connect the end of it , just yet. Because we will draw his tail 🙂
Step 6. Here comes the tail. Draw line up and gives 2 bumps.
Step 7. Draw 3 lines, as pattern on the fin.
Step 8. Let’s give him more fins! A biiiig one from his head. Draw a triangle.
Step 9. And next, add a fin on back.
Step 10. Add a small fin on the bottom of his body
Step 11. Then we will draw his hand-fin. Try to draw a bit lower than his mouth level.
Step 12. We give 3 lines, they are Gill Openings. That’s where he breathes from.
Step 13. Add a cute-eye! Large eye makes cute. but if you want less cute, you can draw angry…or small eye.
Step 14. And at last!!!!! We’re adding teeth on him!
We want, big, sharp teeth. So let’s draw his upper teeth. Draw Zig-Zag teeth like this!
Step 15. Then we draw lower teeth. Again, draw Zig-Zag but a bit smaller….so they’ll fit.
WELL DONE!! You did it!!!
