How about I start the day off with something cute, and nice? I was trying to think what other type of animal I could draw that would make an awesome easy lesson. After brain storming I finally decided to make a tutorial on "how to draw an easy fish", step by step. Now, you know that I have a wide variety of different types of fish on the site, and amongst them are some cute fish, simple fish, and even cartoon style fish. I wanted to make this lesson because I know that drawing an easy fish is something that everyone likes to do. I mean, I love drawing different types of fish because they are so interesting to me. I know what you’re thinking right now “how on earth is fish interesting?” Well, to tell you the truth, they have a lot of mystery to them. I mean for real, you can’t tell me that you have never wondered what it would be like to be a fish. And I’m not talking about the life that Disney gave when they made Finding Nemo, I’m talking about a real experience. These animals live in the water; they get to see all different kinds of beautiful reefs, and other colorful animals that live in the water with them. Fish also swim next to whales, sharks, octopus, eels, and whatever else may live deep in the sea. To me that is pretty darn fascinating because they have an existence that revolves around so much beauty. I guess sometimes I wonder what it would be like to live in the ocean like a fish. Anyways, I drew out a very basic fish so you can breeze through this tutorial in no time at all. If you want, you can add some characteristics to your fish so that it resembles you a bit. Or you can leave it alone. No matter what you choose to do, I’m sure you will have fun learning "how to draw an easy fish". That does it for now. I will be back shortly so stay tuned in folks. Peace peeps, and keep those pencils moving!
