Narwhals are often considered to be mythical, but this is a misunderstanding – though they may seem like something from a fairytale, narwhals are very much real. Why not take a closer look for yourself by creating your own – they are well worth the effort!
Step-By-Step Images and Instructions
Start with a black pen, and draw a wavy line, like a backward “S”, across the page.
Add a pointed horn to the left side of this.
Add curved lines across the horn…
And then bring a line down from the bottom of this, taking this down and across to the right slightly.
Just above the bottom of this, take a line across, down to a point, and back up. Wave it to the right, and then up to almost meet the line above.
Now, extend the curved line at the front down and across to meet the point – the fin -and then continue it on the other side of the fin, following the line above.
Close the lines at the right with a heart-shaped tail.
Add a curved, pointed shape to the front of your creature…
And then add a curved line just below the horn for the eye, with small marks below for lashes.
Add a curve to the front of the face for the mouth, with a small mark at the end, and then add a small circle below the eye.
Add some small stars around the tail…
And then add curved lines to the belly of the narwhal.
Use a red pen to add color to the heart-shaped tail, the bottom of the belly, the color on the cheek, and the tip of the horn.
Now, use an orange pen for the next stripe of the belly, and the next section of the horn.
Use a blue pen for the next section…
And a green pen to complete the rainbow and the horn.
Use a blue pencil to add a large oval all-around your narwhal, and shade this with the blue pen.
And there we have it – an amazing creature that is not mythical, but very much real! Time to get researching – narwhals are fascinating creatures, and there is a lot to learn.
