Learn how to draw a clown fish

The Star from “Finding Nemo”

You probably know the story of the adorable clownfish Nemo, right? The little fish is captured from the sea by humans. His father then does everything in his power to free his son. Thanks to this funny animated film, clownfish became well-known and popular worldwide. Nowadays, you can find them in almost every larger aquarium.

The movie was created using computer-generated 3D animation. Today, we’ll show you how to draw a clownfish like Nemo yourself in 2D, on your paper.

Draw Your Clownfish

To draw this marine creature yourself, start with a droplet shape. It’s sharp on the left and round on the right, like a lying raindrop. Then, in the second step, our clownfish gets an eye. And the tail fin can’t be missing! Additionally, we start drawing the pattern. At first, it’s just two lines in the middle of the fish. The one on the right is slightly curved.

As you follow the instructions below, more fins and patterns are added. If you’re not familiar with our drawing tutorials yet, feel free to check out this guide first. In the fifth step, the little clownfish gets its distinctive fin color. These are almost black on the outer edges. Only a thin white line is visible between this pattern and the tip of the fins.

Color Brings the Clownfish to Life

With many fish, you can experiment with different colors. However, the clownfish is truly recognizable only by its orange-and-white coloration. So, try to color little Nemo as we show you in our guide. Everywhere the black areas of the fins meet, the fish is orange. And the rest of the body remains white. Not so difficult, right?

It’s nice if you don’t just draw one clownfish, but several at once! Maybe you want to draw an aquarium full of fish? Or an entire underwater landscape?
