How to Draw A Cartoon Tuna

Sponsored Links

This lesson will help you learn to draw a cartoon tuna! And don't be fooled by this nice-looking fish! They are fast and very agile! Some tunas can be quite large and pretty heavy! Still, they are very appreciated... in a can! 

But even when they are dead, tunas are still a menace to man! The level of mercury found in some species can be dangerous or represent a risk for your health! Let's try to draw a nice and non-threatening tuna in this easy and short drawing lesson!

Step 1

How to draw a cartoon tuna

First, draw a small triangle to create the tip of the mouth. Then, add a large circle to form the body of your tuna.

Step 2

When you are finished, start working on the caudal fin! To do so, just draw three triangles like shown in the image above. The caudal fin of the tuna isn't that big, so be careful to draw it with accurate proportions.

Step 3

Ok! This step is a little loaded, but you'll see that there is nothing too complicated in it! First, draw a small circle to create the eye. Then, sketch five triangles to create the fins and the spiny ray (the one on top, near the eye). You can also sketch the miniature fins available on the tail by adding around ten circles (five on each side).

Step 4

Now refine the outline of your tuna. Notice that our little fish friend doesn't look really happy with its mouth leaning towards the bottom.

Step 5

Do some more tuning and add the pupil in the eye of the tuna. You can also draw a curved line on the body to separate the head form it.

Step 6

Time to add some colors! In my case, I've decided to color my fish in blue, with a couple of fins being colored in yellow.

Step 7

Once again, you can add some light shadows to improve your image. This is not mandatory, but your drawing will look more polished and interesting that way! 

Like you can see, drawing a cartoon tuna is not a very difficult task to achieve! You just need to draw a long and large fish and load it with fins and nice colors! I hope you had fun following this tutorial and don't hesitate to come back often! This website is updated pretty often!
