How to Draw a Cute Salmon - Step-by-Step Tutorial

Step 1: Draw an equilateral triangle with rounded points. At one point, draw a heart shape with a line through the middle. Now you have the salmon's head.

Step 2: In the center of the head, draw a large, semi-shaded circle for an eye.

Step 3: Now, draw the body. This can be done by extending the lines of the head back and down. Along the top of the body, draw lots of small circles for the pattern.

Step 4: For the fins, draw a triangle on top of the body and two curved triangles toward the front for the body fins. Each fin should have several lines dashed within it. Draw a curved line with a few points at the end for the belly and back fins.

Step 5: At the end of the body, draw the tail. This can be done by drawing two diagonal lines and a line with several curves. Within the tail, draw several lines to show detail.
