How To Draw A Goldfish

In this tutorial I’ll be showing you how to draw a goldfish. Goldfish are one of the most popular pets in the world, and are many times a child’s very first pet. Did you know that while they may not live for too long in our fishbowls at home, in the wild a goldfish can live up to 25 years? But if you don’t have a real live one, you can learn how to draw your very own goldfish in the steps below instead. Let’s get started!
