Step 1: Start by drawing the head by drawing a rough "C" with the bottom shorter than the top.

Step 2: Draw the face by drawing a small dot for the eye and a small curved line for the mouth beneath that. Now draw the gill by drawing a small triangle with rounded corners behind the eye and draw tiny lines across it for detail.

Step 3: Draw the body by drawing two curved lines from the top and the bottom of the head and take them towards the right and downwards. At the right join them together to form a pointed edge. Make sure to make the bottom line more curved than the top one.

Step 4: Now we draw the tail by drawing a cirved triangle slightly above and to the right of the body.

Step 5: Next we draw the fins. Draw a line right above the upper edge of the body all the way from above the eye to the tail. Now bring the line back below the body and all the way to below the head.
