Draw a Dolphin

Learning how to draw a dolphin can be tricky as they include so many curves. This tutorial breaks them all down into small steps.

I think it helps to think of him as a banana with a tail. That long and narrow mouth looks just like the stem to me, it’s just sitting off to one side a little.

Also, when it comes to coloring in your dolphin, try to color a bit lighter on his belly. It’s an easy way to make him look a little more realistic.
