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.
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.
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.
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.
To add the bottom fin, create another similar teardrop shape, just smaller. Again, add a few lines inside for the fin folds.
Draw the final fin as shown. One last teardrop shape and a few final lines inside.
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.
Add one more fin on the inside, and some small curves to add scale pattern.
