No need to go underwater to draw a cute fish clipart like the one available here! Fish are wonderful animals found everywhere around the world. Several cities are countries are relying on fish to feed population. A fish can be 7 millimeters in height and can reach an impressive 50 feet (whale shark). Surprisingly, fish can feel pain and have a complex nervous system. They can also hear and see quite well. Unfortunately, some fish are endangered species. 

In this simple tutorial, you will learn how to draw a fish made from a large rectangle, a few circles and some triangles. This is a very basic drawing lesson, so even beginners or young kids should be able to duplicate this illustration easily. Ready? Let's draw! :)

Step 1

First, you can sketch a large rectangle to form the body of the animal. Make sure the outline is thick and easy to read. Then, you can add a line inside the rectangle to separate the head and the body. Make sure that the body is slightly smaller than the head.

Step 2

Next, you can draw a small triangle on top of the head to illustrate the back fin of the fish. Two more triangles made from curved lines can also be added on each sides of the character to form additional fins. Finally, the tail is made from several curved lines as shown in the illustration below.

Step 3

For this third step, you can draw two large circles to represent the eyes. The pupils are also made from circles, but these circles must be smaller. Finally, a long curved line is added below the eyes to represent the mouth. Now that the drawing part is over, let's proceed with the fourth step (adding colors).

Step 4

For the head, you can select a simple skin color. The rest of the body and fins are filled with a bright orange color. The pupils can be colored in blue. Finally, you can choose a dark orange color for the outlines. Black outlines are fine, but colored ones are even more appealing.
