We continue our sea creature drawing tutorials with a ferocious looking shark.

Not long ago we learned how to draw a dolphin, so it’s only fair to draw a sea creature that is often portrayed as the enemy of the dolphin. Well, as the enemy of almost everything.

This fiery fish sends shivers through your bones and I certainly wouldn’t be thrilled to find one in the ocean. But that doesn’t mean these animals aren’t amazing. I mean just look at his gazzilion teeth. how awesome are they

Regardless of what characteristics this animal has, it’s definitely fun to draw, so let’s learn how to draw it together.

Draw a small curve and finish it with an inverted V shape. That’s the end of the mouth. The worst is over.

Draw a fin about in the middle. No need to be super specific.
