Step 1

Drawing a fish

I guess you are! First, draw the body of the character using a simple rectangle with round corners. Make sure the shape is filled with a vivid blue color and surrounded by a good-looking outline.

Step 2

Next, add two dark oval shapes to represent the eyes. These shapes must be small, but easy to see from a great distance. For the mouth, simply use a curved line that is colored with the same blue color used for the outline.

Step 3

Proceed with the addition of the back fin. You can use a circle and create a hole inside this new shape using a smaller circular shape. It's a simple technique, but the result is fine enough to give something interesting.

Next, add more fins on top and on the bottom of the body. These new elements are made from triangles. Once again, you can use sharp outlines to give more personality to the cartoon character.

Step 5

On the body, you can add a long shape on the back to give some depth to the fish. See how the addition of a single solid shape can create something new and fascinating? Repeat the same technique on the back fin.

Step 6
