Of all the creatures that swim in our oceans, dolphins are often considered to be amongst the most popular; and with their adorable faces, friendly natures, and super smart personalities, it is not hard to see why. Take a chance to celebrate these wonderful creatures by bringing your own to life through art – let’s get started.
Step-By-Step Images and Instructions
Start by grabbing a black pen, and drawing a heart shape in the center of your page.
Add a wavy shape with a pointed bottom to the right of this.
Next, add a wavy line to the left-center of this shape, and take this across to the top left-hand corner of the page. Add a “hook” to the end.
From the top of the “hook”, take a curved line up, across to the right, and then down and across to the left. Add another “hook” to the end.
Connect this to the shape in the center – the fin – to complete the main outline of one dolphin.
Add another curved line from the bottom of the nose to the tip of the tail.
Now, add a “horseshoe” shape to the top of the dolphin…
And add two small circles, one large and one small, to create the eye.
Now, add another “hook” shape to the left of the first, creating the nose of the second dolphin.
Add another fin to this second dolphin…
Bring a curved line up and across from the top of the nose, and take this across, then down towards the bottom right-hand corner. End the line with a “hook”.
Continue the line up towards the bottom of the fin to create the outline of the second dolphin.
Now, add another line for the tummy, just as before…
And add another eye to the creature.
Add two small circles just inside the eye.
Now, add a large, curved fin to the back of each dolphin.
Add a curved tail, with two sections, to the bottom of the left dolphin…
And repeat this with the dolphin on the right.
Use a black pen to shade the spaces around the circles in the eyes.
Now, use a pink pen to shade the main body of each dolphin, as well as the heart in the center.
And there we have it – two dolphins expressing their love; this is a great way to tell someone special just how you really feel about them!
