How to Draw a Jumping Dolphin

how to draw a jumping dolphin step 1

STEP 1.

Dolphins have a streamlined fusiform body so, to draw a jumping one, is important to draw first of all a line (in the image is an arrow) that determine the movement of the animal. Other simple lines that can help you creating a dynamic drawing are the ones of flippers and dorsal fin.

The body of the jumping dolphin is curved and bulky. Draw the guide lines starting from a line that determine movement and position of the body, then add head, finish the body and draw tail, flippers and dorsal fin.
