Please PAUSE the "How to Draw a Fish (Guppy)" 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 an oval as a guide for the guppy fish's body. The oval doesn't have to be perfect. It's just a guide.
Step 2: Draw a long arc similar to the letter U on its side on the right side of the oval to complete the guppy's body.
Step 3: On the left side of the oval, draw an angled line similar to a "less than sign" (<) as a guide for the guppy's head.
Step 4: Draw the guppy fish's tail or caudal fin on the right side og the body. First draw two curved, opposing diagonal lines on the top and bottom. Then close the gap with another curved line on the right. The size of this shape will determine the size of the guppy's tail.
Step 5: Draw a curved line on the top part of the guppy fish's body as a guide for the dorsal fin.
