Our oceans are teeming with life, and we still have a tremendous amount to learn about the things that lie beneath the waves – some experts believe that we have a greater knowledge of the mysteries of outer space than we do out own oceans.
Dolphins are one creature that we have managed to learn about; and not surprisingly, they have earned a solid place as one of the most popular marine wonders. Looking to create your own? Let’s get started.
Step-By-Step Images and Instructions
Start by taking a blue pen, and drawing a curved line, with the end in the center of your page.
Add a “hook” to the top of the line, heading off to the left.
Take the end of the “hook”, and curve the line up and back across to the right – this will become the fin of your dolphin.
Bring another curved line across from the bottom of the fin, stretching towards the right of your page.
At the end of the line, add another, short line.
Curve the end of this line round and back down, running parallel with the top one. Then add a “bump”, and continue the line curving back down, parallel with your original line – your dolphin’s tail is starting to take shape.
Now, move to the bottom of the tail, and add two curved lines to the bottom of the lines you already created, pointing in opposite directions towards the bottom of your page.
Connect these two lines together with a wavy line, that leaps up to a “point” in the middle.
Now, grab a blue pen, and fill in the body of your dolphin with the shade.
Take a cyan pen, and, starting at the bottom of the nose, bring a line across and down.
Extend the line slightly further, and then bring it down, across and back up to create another fin.
Continue the line across to meet the very top of the tail.
Now fill in this section with the cyan pen.
And there we have it – your very own simple dolphin, ready to be inserted into any underwater scene you come up with!
