How to Draw a Basking Shark

Please see the drawing tutorial in the video below


You can refer to the simple step-by-step drawing guide below

Step 1

The Basking Shark is a large fish that is not dangerous to humans. Let’s start with the head and mouth. Use a rounded point at the top for the nose and drag a line down. Using a half-circle for their mouths, they feed by swimming with their mouths open to catch smaller fish. Add a few inner wavy lines for detail. Finally, add another line at the bottom.

Step 2

For the body, draw a long cone with a few protrusions along the bottom. This will be for the fins.

Step 3

For gills, draw three long curved lines around the body.

Step 4

Now it’s time to add the top fin for which the shark is so famous. Add a triangle at the top and another much smaller triangle near the back for the second fin.

Step 5

Now add a couple of long cones bent down for the bottom fins. These fins help the Basking Shark swim to a depth of 3,000 feet!

Step 6

For the caudal fin, draw a large triangle at the end of the body. These fish can grow up to almost 60 feet long! Color the Basking shark as light gray or blue.
