Drawing a blobfish isn’t as hard as it may appear. Follow these steps, and you’ll be able to wow your friends and family with your amazing blobfish drawing skills!
Step 1: Sketch a Circle
Take your pencil and to draw a circle. It doesn’t have to be perfect – it just needs to resemble an oval shape that depicts the blobfish’s body. To add more realism to your masterpiece, you can draw some rolls in the side of your circle and add some flattering curves – blobfish can be jolly!
Step 2: Divide the Circle
Once your blobfish’s body is done, it’s time to split that circle in two! Starting at the center of the circle, draw a line that will become the division between the top and bottom part of your blobfish’s body. For a more realistic look, make sure the bottom part of your blobfish’s body is slightly bigger than the top part.
Step 3: Add Details
Once your blobfish’s body and facial division is complete, let’s move on to the details! Start by drawing the blobfish’s eyes and mouth. To draw these features, combine the use of circles, ovals and curves. For the mouth, draw two curved lines that connect the eyes to the division line.
Step 4: Color It Up
Once you’ve finished sketching your blobfish, it’s time to bring it to life with some color! Grab your favorite set of colored pencils and draw some beautiful shades on your blobfish’s body. Usually, these creatures have a pink or orange color with black spots on their face. Add a bit of white to create some majestic eyes and a splash of yellow for an iconic blobfish smile.
Step 5: Sharpen Up the Details
The last step to get your blobfish looking perfect is to define its features. Grab a small, precise pencil and go over the lines of your blobfish’s eyes, mouth, and its body details. Once you’re done, your blobfish masterpiece is ready to be put under the glass, or shared with the world!
To finish up your blobfish painting, you can add some shadows and highlights. Color a darker shade at the bottom of your blobfish’s body to add more depth and realism. Highlight the eyes and edges of the blobfish’s body with some shiny white to create contrast. That’s it! You’re now a pro at drawing blobfish!
