We’re glad you love our drawing tutorials for kids! With summer temperatures we decided to make a series of tutorials on how to draw sea creatures (you saw our tutorial how to draw a fish step by step, it’s the easiest on the market).

Then comes the dolphin, the silly sea mammal. And also super smart. You may think that this animal is difficult to draw, but soon you will see that it is easy.

Once you or your kids master this “standard pose” (at least judging by all the dolphin pendants I see) they too will draw this animal in all sorts of different poses. Or add waves and sun in the background to make your drawing even cooler.

Now do the curve for the back. Start with the right one and end with the left one.

You just learned how to draw a dolphin! You see, it wasn’t that hard at all. You can now add ripples in the background to make it look like the dolphin is jumping out of the water (a few water drops and splashes would also look good). You can also draw a sun in the background.
