How to Draw a Cartoon Piranha - Step-by-Step Tutorial

Step 1: Let's begin with the head of the piranha. Draw a circular figure with a point at the top. Leave a small space off to the left; this will be for the mouth.

Step 2: Next, draw two lines from each side of the space inward, converging the two lines at the center. Add small triangles to the top and bottom of the lines to create the teeth.

Step 3: Next, to the right of the mouth, add a huge dot for the eye and a small curved line on top of the dot.

Step 4: Next, underneath the head at the base on the right, add an almond-shaped figure for the fin and draw a few horizontal lines through the fin.

Step 5: Next, from the top of the head, add a curved line pointing off to the right. From the fin, draw another curved line upward and connect these two lines together.

Step 6: Off to the right of the top curved line, add a small dome for the dorsal fin. Underneath the other curved line, add another dome-like shape off to the right for the lower fin.

Step 7: Lastly, off the back of the body, add a tail-like shape with a few small lines to create some texture on the tail.
