We continue our tutorials on how to draw ocean animals with a fierce looking shark.

Not so long ago we learned how to draw a dolphin together so it’s only right to look into drawing a sea dweller that’s often depicted as an enemy to the dolphin. Well as an enemy to pretty much everything.

This feisty fish sends shivers down your bones and I for one wouldn’t be to thrilled to meet one in the ocean. But that doesn’t meant these animals aren’t awesome. I mean just look at their gazzilion teeth. How cool are those.

Whatever the traits of this animal might be, it sure is fun to draw, so let’s learn to draw it together.

Let’s do it! Start by drawing a curved line – this line will turn into the back of your shark.

Draw a fin at about the middle. No need to be super precise.
