Please PAUSE the "How to Draw a Hammerhead Shark" video after each step to draw at your own pace.
For the first few steps, don't press down too hard with your pencil. Use light, smooth strokes to begin.
Step 1: Draw a rectangle with a diagonal orientation as a guide for the hammerhead shark's head. The size of the rectangle will determine the size of the head, so draw it accordingly. Leave room on the right side so you can draw the shark's body.
Step 2: Draw a long curved line as a guide for the top part of the hammerhead shark's body. The line should begin near the right side of the rectangle. The longer the line is, the longer the shark's body will be.
Step 3: Draw a second curved line under the first one as a guide for the bottom part of the hammerhead shark's body. This line should bend more than the first, and the two lines should meet on the right side.
Step 4: Draw two triangle-like shapes on the body as a guide for the hammerhead shark's pectoral fins. The fin on the left should be outside of the body, and the fin on the right should be inside the body.
Step 5: Draw another triangle-like shape on top of the hammerhead's body as a guide for the shark's dorsal fin.
