Now that we’ve warmed up, let’s draw a rough circle for the head. Remember to keep your strokes loose and light. We don’t want to press too hard on our pencil because we will erase the instructions later.


Once you’ve placed the circle on the paper, draw a cross at a small angle. Follow the “U” shape for the jawline. Make sure that the “U” shape is in the same direction as the cross.


Draw two ovals for the torso and hip positions. We wanted to track the flow and energy of our rough sketch study. Notice that the hips are wider than the rib cage. If you feel your pose is too stiff, you can add an action line to reinforce the mermaid’s gesture.


Next, we will draw the center lines of the torso and hips. From there, we can add the lower rib cage and some contrapposto shifts.


Draw the tail using the “S” shapes that flow downwards.


The arms can be divided into round, cylindrical and glove-like shapes. Use the lines to help you determine the length of your mermaid arm. Next, add flowing “S” lines for the mermaid’s caudal fin.


Now we can add rough ovals for the eyes and lips. Add a small curved line to place the nose and divide the lip oval with a line. Helpful tip, the bottom lip is a bit thicker than the top.


Blocks the shape of hairs and breasts. At this stage, your mermaid will resemble a mannequin. Remember to keep your drawing light. If you are having trouble drawing light lines, you can use a 2H pencil to draw your bottom line.


Now that we have the foundation, we can refine our shapes and add details. Identify the eyes, hands, and bra shell. Note that clean lines are darker as opposed to shortened lines.

STEP: 10

Delete all your unwanted lines. Continue to refine your line art and add a few fish scales for texture. At this stage you have completed your mermaid! If you want to continue working on your drawing, the next step explains some essential pencil shading tips.
