Please PAUSE the "How to Draw a Shark (Cartoon)" video after each step to draw at your own pace.
Written step-by-step video tutorial:
For the first few steps, don't press down too hard with your pencil. Use light, smooth strokes to begin.
Step 1: Draw a short diagonal line for the top part of the cartoon shark's eye. Curve the tips of the line so that it looks more like a furrowed brow. Draw a curved line underneath for the bottom part of the eye.
Step 2: Inside the eye, near the top, draw a small dot for the pupil. Above the eye, draw a line that's somewhat parallel to the top of the eye to emphasize the shark's brow.
Step 3: Draw the front part of the shark's head by first drawing a sloping line to the right of the eye. Now angle the line back to the left side so that it looks similar to a greater-than sign (>). Now curve the line to the left side so that it forms the top part of the mouth. Notice how close the end of the line is to the eye. It should stretch farther left than the eye to give the shark a big mouth.
Step 4: Draw a long curved line underneath the line from the previous step for the bottom part of the shark's mouth. You can draw this line lower for an even bigger mouth! Add a short line on the right to connect the top and bottom.
Step 5: Draw a line on the right that's parallel to the mouth for the shark's bottom lip.
