If you are keen to enjoy your own pet but unable to meet the many demands of a dog or cat, then a cute fish in a tank can be a great alternative. If you are yet to get to the stage of owning your own fish, you can bring your own to life through art – let’s get started!
Step-By-Step Images and Instructions
Start with a black pen, and draw a long, thin oval shape at the top of your page.
Bring down two short, vertical lines, one at either end.
Then, take these lines down, out, and back in, joining them with a short line at the bottom.
Add a bumpy line just at the point where the edges bump out…
And add a long circular shape below this, with a smaller shape at the bottom.
Next, add two circles to the right of this shape, and fill these in with black circles.
Add a curved line below this, with a mark on the end, for a smiling mouth…
And then add a series of curved lines across the left.
Now, add a bump to the bottom for a fin, and another pointed fin at the top.
Bring a curved, forked tail out at the back…
Bring three vertical curved, pointed shapes across the bottom. of the bowl…
And then add another set of curved lines to the left, curving these across to the left slightly.
Add another curved shape in between the original shapes…
And then bring two across on the left, pointing towards the right.
Add another set of reeds and grasses to the bottom.
Bring a vertical line along the bottom of the grass.
Now, bring two vertical, parallel lines up on the right, and add crenellations to the top, creating a small castle in the bottom right of the bowl.
Use a yellow pen to shade the body of the fish.
Now, use a blue pen for the fin and tails of the fish.
Use a darker blue pen for the castle…
And then a green pen for the grasses.
Use a brown pencil to fill in the space at the bottom of the bowl.
Then, use a bright blue pen to shade the rest of the bowl.
And there we have it – a super cute fish, enjoying his life in a fishbowl – all he needs is a name!
