Step 6: On the far left side of the body, draw yet another triangle as a guide for the dolphin's tail or flukes. Pay close attention to the placement of the last triangle. If you place it too far, your dolphin will be long. Too close and the dolphin will be short.
Step 7: Draw a couple of lines that connect the flukes to the main part of the dolphin's body.
That's it for the initial sketch! From this point on, press harder with your pencil to get a more defined sketch.
Step 8: Draw the dolphin's eye near the back of the head. The eye is roughly the shape of an oval. Shade it in and leave a small circle unshaded to represent glare. Draw a few lines around the dolphin's eye for extra detail.
Step 9: Use the initial arc as a guide to draw in the dolphin's mouth. Follow the basic shape of the arc. Draw the mouth as a line that curves and extends toward the inside of the head, near the eye. Draw another line above the dolphin's mouth and darken the bottom part to finish off the beak-like mouth.
