Baby shark do-do-do... whether you love it or hate it, sharks, clownfish, and other ocean dwellers are an indelible part of our popular culture. You can draw them all - and more - with these easy fish drawing tutorials.
Jaws, Baby Shark, Shark Week, Bruce from Finding Nemo - sharks are the animals we love to hate. There are plenty of these toothy fish, including great white sharks, megalogons, tiger sharks, stingrays, and hammerheads.
You can use these illustrations to create an entire ocean scene. Go deep sea fishing for swordfish or anglerfish. Or visit a tropical coral reef filled with clownfish, butterflyfish, surgeonfish, angelfish, jellyfish, sponges, seaweed, and seahorses.
Freshwater rivers and lakes also have diverse ecosystems. You can discover catfish, bass, trout, or salmon.
If you don't want to set your sights as high as every fish in the sea, you can start with a fishbowl or aquarium instead. Bettas and goldfish are great choices for these environments. Or draw an ornamental pond filled with koi.
You can also meet some of your favorite aquatic cartoon characters, including Nemo and Dory.
Bring home a new fishy friend in this fishbowl. The bowl itself is round in classic style. It is decorated with sand, rocks, plants, and a clam with a pearl inside. Do you think the angelfish will soon outgrow its bowl?
You might begin to hear heartbeat-like music in a quickening staccato as you draw this toothy shark. Unlike the other sharks on this list, this one is at a unique angle, as if you are viewing the fish from below.
Stingrays are a type of flat fish closely related to sharks. Their mouths appear to smile, and their eyes are located on top of their body. They also have winglike fins and a tail with a sharp, poisonous barb at its base.
Salmon are unique in that they split their time between the ocean and freshwater rivers. In fact, they perform amazing feats, even leaping up waterfalls to return to their birthplace. Find the salmon's freshwater cousin, the trout, below.
