If you’re wondering how to draw a Narwhal, this tutorial is for you! Narwhals are interesting little critters that look like unicorns of the sea. They are a type of small whale and they’re famous for their huge horn that sticks out of the front of their head. What’s interesting is that this horn isn’t a horn at all… it’s actually the narwhal’s front tooth! Anyway, grab your pencil and let’s get drawing!
To get our narwhal started, we will first need to draw a long teardrop shape. This shape should be thick and round on one end, and pointed on the other. This will become the body of the narwhal.
Next, draw a small oval shape near the front of the narwhal’s body for the front flipper.
We now need to draw the narwhal’s tail by adding a small triangular shape to the pointed end of the whale’s body.
Now for that famous horn! Draw a long pointed shape extending out from the narwhal’s head. This horn should be nearly as long as the body.
Next, draw several small lines running along the length of the narwhal’s tusk to give it a spiral appearance.
Narwhal’s don’t have much in the way of facial features. Draw a very small eye in the center of the head, and a small line beneath the tusk for the narwhal’s mouth.
Lastly we are going to give our narwhal a little color. Narwhals are a pale grayish color and have darker spotted areas on the top of the body. I’ve added a few bubbles in the background, and our narwhal is all done! I hope you enjoyed learning how to draw a narwhal with me. If you did, be sure to stop back for plenty more tutorials!
