Today we’ll be drawing a cartoon clownfish. Clownfish are the cute little guys who spend the majority of their lives cuddled up with sea anemones.
Clownfish are one of my favorite fish, and I’ve done a tutorial on how to draw a more realistic clownfish before. But with the all the cartoon animal tutorials, it seems like a perfect time for this one.
Let’s get started!
To get our cartoon clownfish started, we’ll first need to draw a large oval shape which will become the entirety of the fish’s body.
As you can see, the front of the oval should extend inside a little bit in a curved line to form a smiling mouth.
Right above the clownfish’s mouth, draw two large oval eyes–each with a small line running across the top for an eyelid and a small oval for a pupil.
Next, we need to give our cartoon clownfish some fins. Draw a large oval running down the fish’s back, and a fairly large circle near the back for a tail fin.
Give the fins of your clownfish a little texture by drawing several lines running vertically across each fin.
Next, draw a curved line behind the clownfish’s mouth for a gill, and a very small fin sticking out from it.
Finally, draw three very thick stripes running down the cartoon clownfish’s body.
Color your clownfish orange and white, and he’s all done!
I hope you’ve enjoyed this tutorial!
