A simple fish made with triangles! Learn how to draw a tuna that is cute and easy to create. At a very young age, we learn how to draw a cartoon fish using only a circle and a triangle. It's a simple technique that is very effective and widely used. This tutorial is slightly based on that, but a few details are added to end up with a more professional design. 

Looking at the sample below, you can see that tunas are gifted with many small fins near the back fin. This fish is usually colored in blue and adding more delicate shapes to create a fun cartoon animal is recommended. Let's move on with the first step!

Step 1

The first element you need to illustrate is the body. Make a large oval shape. You will need enough rooms to also draw the face and the eyes on the left side of the body.

Next, you can draw the fin on the right of the cartoon tuna. Draw another small curved line inside the character to represent the head and the face.

Nice! You can now draw the fins using small triangles. The two fins near the middle of the body are longer and larger. The other ones on the right side are smaller and thinner.

Great! This cartoon character is getting better and better. When you are ready, you can draw the pupils and the eyes using circular shapes. Make sure these shapes are large enough to enhance the cuteness of the cartoon animal.
