We all know that fish belong in water – but did you also know that some of them like to jump? Well, let’s take a closer look at ourselves in just a few short steps!
Step-By-Step Images and Instructions
Start with a black pen, and draw a wavy, jagged shape at the bottom of your page.
Add two “teardrop” shapes inside this, making the tails of these a little longer.
Now, add two more “teardrop” shapes to the top.
Bring a series of curved dashes and lines around the bottom of the puddle.
Grab a ruler, and draw a straight line across the page, just below the top of the puddle.
Add a short line to the top right corner, and then bring the line across and up towards the top right-hand corner of the page. Add a “point”, and then connect this to the short line. Add a curve just inside the right line, and a small circle at the top corner.
Draw another circle inside this, and then a small semicircle shape at the top.
Bring down two curved lines from the bottom of this, and join them at the end with a point.
Add another curve to the bottom, parallel to the one above, and then add a curved line to the top. Do you see your fish starting to take shape?
Add two “teardrop” fins to the end to form the tail of the fish.
Now, add another fin emerging from beside the head…
And follow this up with two curved sections to the left, with a small dot above the top one.
Connect these to the shape behind the head with two more sets of curved lines.
Add small circles inside each section…
And add another set of curved lines to the bottom of this part.
Now, repeat this pattern on the right side of the central fin.
Repeat this pattern all across the body of the fish…
And then fill in the central part of the eye with a black pen.
Take a yellow pen, and use this to shade the face.
Add color to the fin at the front with a blue pen…
And then fill in all the small circles with an orange shade.
Grab a light blue pen, and add color to the strips at the top and bottom of the fish’s body.
Now, use the yellow pen to shade the rest of the space in the center.
Add color to the tail with a purple pen…
And then shade the puddle and the space below the line with a blue pen for the water.
And there we have it – your very own fish out of the water, enjoying the freedom that comes with a great leap.
