Just a reminder to everyone. Telling someone that their artwork sucks is not a legitimate constructive criticism.

If you post 'em, I can promise legitimately constructive criticism coupled with compliments on the good points and suggestions on improving.

With Eris-san on that. Post 'em and I'll be happy to enjoy them. I'm an artist too so yeah. ^^ Please post them if you do decide to draw them.

I find it fun to draw betta's. It feels surreal especially when it's quiet and your watching the tank as your subject flits about.

How to Draw a Betta

Location Drawing Tutorials Animals Fish How to Draw a Betta




STEP 1.

Okay as you can imagine this is going to be simple. All you have to do is draw a oblong oval circle with a small circle for the eye. You will then add a dash like line for the tail.

STEP 2.

Since the male betta is a very pretty fish, you will emphasize this in your drawing. Draw the outline of his top dorsal fin and then the anal fin which is directly under the belly of the betta. You will also draw out the long skinny pelvic fin which is under the eye but pushed back a bit, and then draw out the caudal peduncle which is the tail part before the caudal fin or back fin tail. Flare out every fin you draw too so that your betta looks marvelous.

STEP 3.

This is your last drawing step and what you will do now is add the fin definition lines to detail your Betta's fins. Next draw the pectoral fin which is located near the gill cover and then draw out the shape of the gill, lower jaw, upper jaw and then detail the mouth. Color in a pupil and then detail around the eye. Shape out the body of the fish by narrowing the ends. Erase the guidelines that you drew in step one.

STEP 4.

Colour!
