Dive into Fun: Learn to Draw Dolphins!

Exploring the world of drawing dolphins is like diving into a magical underwater adventure! Dolphins are super cool creatures with sleek bodies and friendly smiles, just like in your favorite storybooks.

Imagine picking up your crayons or pencils and bringing these amazing animals to life on paper! With each stroke, you’ll discover how to capture the dolphin’s playful spirit and graceful movements.

As you draw, you’ll learn all about the special features that make dolphins so unique, from their curved fins to their shiny, smooth skin. And hey, did you know that dolphins love to jump and play in the waves? You can show that in your drawing too!

Drawing dolphins isn’t just about making pretty pictures. It’s a chance to explore your imagination and express yourself in a fun and colorful way. So grab your art supplies and get ready for an ocean of creativity and joy as you learn to draw your very own dolphins!

Here’s how to draw a dolphin:

Before you begin, you can see roughly how the picture should look at the end. We’ve drawn a dolphin leaping out of the water into the air. The same drawing works for a dolphin underwater too. Then you just need to draw the background slightly differently. Is the dolphin your first project from “Learn to Draw Online”? Then it’s best to check out our guide beforehand.

But now let’s get started! For your dolphin drawing, start with a curved line. It should look a bit like a half-circle. Then add the snout and dorsal fin. The fin is roughly in the middle of the curved line. Now we’re at step three of the drawing guide. Here you draw the mouth – by the way, a smile suits the dolphin very well. Also, close the body in this step. Next, place the eye a little behind the corner of the mouth. Finally, the dolphin just needs its tail fin and two pelvic fins. The drawing is done! And coloring isn’t difficult either: dolphins are usually blue-gray. Their smooth bodies shine when they leap out of the water. You can paint a few bright highlights on the top of the dolphin for this.

How do you like your own dolphin drawing? Soon we’ll offer you a few more marine creatures as drawing tutorials, so stay tuned and come back soon!

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?
