How to Draw a Cartoon Hammerhead Shark - Step-by-Step Tutorial
Step 1: We will begin with the head, or mallet, of our shark! Draw two semi-circles and attach the two with one line at the top. The shape should be similar to the head of a hammer.
Step 2: Next, let's add the eyes. In the middle of both semi-circles, add a singular circle.
Step 3: Now for the body. At the base of each semi circle, draw a diagonal line that runs off towards the left.
Step 4: Next, in between the two lines right below the eyes, add a big smile to your shark!
Step 5: This shark wants to swim! Let's add the fins. We will start by drawing a triangular-shaped fin off the top of the left-most line, located right at the center. A ways down, add another triangle, this time much smaller in height. Underneath the body, add a bunch of smaller triangles pointed downward. Up closer to the chest of the shark, add two triangles for his front fins.
Step 6: You're almost done! At the very end of the shark's body, create a tail that resembles a bowtie shape.
Step 7: Lastly, right above the front fin, add a few little lines for the shark's gill openings.
