Learn More About The Blue Whale Drawing

Blue whales are the largest animals on Earth, but drawing one is not a huge undertaking. In fact, it's easy with the help of this step-by-step blue whale drawing guide.

You will create your blue whale using a series of curved lines. Sometimes the lines will take on familiar shapes - for instance, the circle of the eye, the triangular dorsal fin, and the teardrop-shaped tail fins.

Did you know? To understand just how large the blue whale is, you can compare them to other animals. For example, one blue whale is about the same size as:

  • 40 African elephants, or
  • 30 T-Rex dinosaurs
