Draw two slightly curved lines intersecting near the end, as you see on the picture. Follow the arrows and the drawing will be easier. Now, body of the fish is almost ready.
Connect the first two lines on the tail and draw a half circle, which will be the gill opening.
Add the fins as you see on the picture. You can play with the shape and size as you wish. Make some on a separate paper also, because such exercise will greatly contribute to your fish drawings. Do not forget to draw the mouth and the eye!
Hold your pencil tilted and shade the body gently and gradually. Notice that the fish is always darker on the top and the belly is of very light color. Make some pencil strokes on every fin so that the fins will look more like fins. Please keep the direction of the strokes as seen on the picture.
You can slightly mark the scales on the body of the fish by gentle crossing pencil strokes.

I'm not saying that all girls look like this. She's dramatic in the way she dresses and poses, her amount and color of make up and her hair.

Doodled this scared-looking owl in history class. It almost seems like he's afraid of the light.

This represents a character of a book series. The drawing took me three hours, and is my best drawing yet. I used a reference picture.
