Step 1

Let’s draw a tilapia! It is a very common fish. Start with the mouth by drawing a rectangle with a hole in the back. Draw a small triangle under it for the bottom of the mouth. Tilapia have two distinct sets of functioning jaws, which most fish do not have.

Step 2

Draw the body by creating two curved lines that almost form a large oval. Leave space in the back for the tail! Tilapia is usually a very thin fish.

Step 3

For the caudal fin, draw a few outward curves and connect them with a straight line. Now, add a few horizontal lines inside the tail for detail.

Step 4

For the top fin, create a long teardrop shape that ends at a point. Add a few more small lines at an angle inside the fin for more detail.

Step 5

To add the bottom fin, create another similar teardrop shape, just smaller. Again, add a few lines inside for the fin folds.

Step 6

Draw the final fin as shown. One last teardrop shape and a few final lines inside.

Step 7

For the eyes, draw two ovals, one inside the other. Then add a small curved line from about the middle of the eye to the bottom of the mouth.

Step 8

Add one more fin on the inside, and some small curves to add scale pattern.
