How to draw shark. Learn to draw a shark step by step images along with easy to follow instruction. Sharks are a group of fishes characterized by a cartilaginous skeleton, five to seven gill slits on the sides of the head, and pectoral fins that are not fused to the head. Sharks have been around for about 400 million years. In this tutorial, you will learn to draw shark both head and whole body. All animals and creatures are different in shapes and forms. The best way to approach the drawing is identify simple shapes within the body. It will help to define the main parts of each animal by breaking it down. I usually look at the image and try to break it down into simple geometry shapes. It is a lot easier to draw once you observe the over all shape of the object or person you are trying to draw. I usually start of using circle as a base for character’s skull, then next step would be figuring out the next geometry form to fit into the image.
Shark range in size from the small dwarf lanternshark, only 17 centimetres in length (6.7 inches), to the whale shark, the largest fish in the world, which reaches approximately 12 metres (39 ft). Despite its size, the whale shark feeds only on plankton, squid, and small fish by filter feeding. Sharks are found in all seas. They generally do not live in freshwater although there are a few known exceptions, such as the bull shark and the river shark that can survive in both seawater and freshwater. They breathe through five to seven gill slits. Sharks have a covering of dermal denticles that protects their skin from damage and parasites in addition to improving their fluid dynamics. They also have several sets of replaceable teeth.
