Drawing a cartoon dolphin: some fun facts before starting sketching!
How about a ride into the marine world by learning how to draw a dolphin! Let's take a look at the anatomy of this lovely animal. Dolphin have a long beak (2). They swim with their dorsal fin (1), two flippers (3) and a small fluke (5). They are grey with a light grey stripe that goes from the beak down to the tail stock.
The shapes that with can see in a dolphin are really simples. A long irregular oval for the body. Some triangles for the tail and the dorsal fin and rectangles for the beak and the flippers. Notice how the flippers are really close to the eyes.
For this example, we're gonna draw a dolphin that doesn't look too cartoonish. Start by drawing an oval for the body. Then sketch some triangles for the tail, the flippers and the dorsal fin.
Next, draw the outline of the dolphin. You can now add some details like the eyes and the beak. Adding some grey color and the white stripe and you're creation is completed!
Knowing how to draw a dolphin with a unique personality is your next challenge! You can try to sketch big eyes (1) (3) (5) or a dolphin with a rectangle shape body (2)! These animals are not so difficult to draw if you practice a little bit! Good luck!
