How to Draw a Dolphin Clipart



This dolphin clipart can be drawn using all the favorite tools you like (including pencils, markers, chalks or simply using a vector application just like I did!). Illustrated with huge shapes made from bold outlines, this cute dolphin can be done by kids or beginners. Take your time to study all four steps carefully and you should be able to sketch this clipart animal quite easily. 

Dolphins are interesting creatures. They can be up to 30 feet tall and weight up to 10 tons. These adorable creatures are able to teach, learn and cooperate with each other. Of course, it's hard to determine how intelligent these creatures are, but many believe that dolphins are quite smart. Strangely, they are able to sleep using only one brain hemisphere at a time. They don't have many natural enemies (except for man, of course).

Step 1

Great! Now that we know a little bit more about this intriguing sea animal, let's try to draw one! First, draw a large rectangle to illustrate the body of the animal. On top of this rectangle, add a small triangle to form the dorsal fin. You can add two more fins on both sides of the rectangle.

Finally, you can complete this step by sketching a simple tail on the bottom of the character using long curved lines. Cool! Let's proceed with the second step now!

Step 2

Next, let's draw the eyes using large circular shapes. Inside these eyes, you can draw pupils using smaller circles. Finally, you can draw a long curved line to illustrate the mouth of the dolphin. This one must be placed just below the eyes, but you must leave some room for another shape to be added in step number 3.

Step 3

This shape is a long rectangle with round corners used to illustrate the stomach of the dolphin clipart. You can see on the illustration below how this shape must be drawn and placed on the cartoon character. Complete this step by adding a blowhole using a small oval shape.

Step 4

It's time for some colors! Since we are working on simple clipart images, don't hesitate to use bright colors. In this case, I have used a bright blue color to fill in this cute dolphin. The pupils and the blowhole can be darker. The large patch on the stomach can be lighter.

That's it! This dolphin clipart is ready to swim!

These are all four steps needed to illustrate this cartoon dolphin. You can also work on a different version made from circular shapes if you don't want to use rectangles. Have fun working on both versions and don't hesitate to create your own design using your imagination! :)
