Draw a contour for the shark’s head. Add a center vertical line and a horizontal line. Without them, it would be difficult to keep the shark’s mouth, eyes, and nostrils symmetrical and level.
Then draw the shark’s mouth.
Now it’s time to draw the shark’s fins and tail. Remember, we haven’t drawn the final lines yet – just some general shapes. Don’t press too hard on the pencil as you may want to correct some lines later.
Here’s a good example of line correction – drawing a shark’s nose with a slight bump. Adds a lot of sharp teeth in its mouth.
Now notice how we used that vertical symmetry to draw the nostrils. The eyes are also symmetrical but they are located on either side of the shark’s head. We can only see one eye.
Continue drawing the shark’s body, placing a row of gills along the center horizontal line.
Draw more realistic and detailed fins and tail. Make sure that the tips of the fins are slightly sharp (not rounded).
Cover the shark’s open mouth with red and finish the gills and eyes in black. Make the belly blue-gray.
