Sharks have something of a bad reputation; the media and literature have painted them as scary, fearsome killers with a mouth full of razor-sharp teeth. In truth, there is far more to sharks than this stereotype – let’s take a closer look!
Step-By-Step Images and Instructions
Grab a blue pen, and draw a curved line across your page. Take this down at the end, and then loop it back across towards the left.
Add a large, curved, pointed fin to the end of this line.
Now, add another fin to the top line…
And continue the bottom line across to the left to meet the one above it. Join the two lines with a large, pointed tail.
Add a small triangular fin just in front of the tail…
And then add a small circle to the right side of the head.
Fill in the rest of the body with the blue pen.
Now, use a slightly darker shade of blue to add three curved lines to the bottom of the shark, in front of the bottom fin.
Use a black pen to add a small ring inside the eye, and follow this with a small mark to the bottom of the jaw.
Use a sky blue pen to bring a curved line down from the bottom of the nose, and take this in, and then back out. Take the line back down and across to meet the tail.
Fill this section in with the sky blue pen…
And then use the dark blue pen to add a curved line to the bottom in front of the fin, and another, small triangular fin to the bottom at the back.
Use the sky blue pen to turn the curved line into another small fin…
And then use a red pen to shade the mouth, leaving small white marks for the famous teeth.
Make sure that the shark’s nose is sharp enough. Use the blue pen and the sky blue pen to complete the shark’s nose.
And there we have it – a not-so-scary simple shark. Why not hit the books and learn more about the power and majesty of sharks? They are incredible creatures at heart!
