Drawing a cartoon shark: some fun facts before starting sketching!
No one wants to go head-to-head with a great white shark... unless it's a cartoon one! This animal is very well-known for its dark black eyes (1) and numerous sharp teeth (6).
One thing you don't want to see while swimming is the dorsal fin (3) of a shark coming out of the water! Also, the shark has two pectoral fin (5), gill slits (2) and caudal fin (4) to help him move faster.
The body of the shark is made of a long oval shape. All fins can be represented by triangles. Small lines can be drawn to form the gill slits. This animal can move very fast in the water so it's important to draw a shark that will look both strong and agile.
The shark has also four small fins near the end of the body. You don't really need to draw them in order to create a recognizable shark.
This example is really easy. I tried to choose one with very few shapes so that you can draw your own shark in no time! First, draw the shape of the body. It should look like a circle that was cut in half.
Then, add the dorsal fin, the caudal fin and the pectoral fin. Add some details like the eye, the gill slits, the nostril and the mouth. Your shark should be colored in grey to add some realism.
Now, you can try to draw a more realistic shark if you wish (2). You can use your imagination and sketch one with big teeth (4) or one with an aggressive look (1). Just don't forget that this is a very strong animal and that you should really depict that in your drawings. Good luck!
