1. Start with the base shape.
“Dolphins have this very elongated, but tapered, banana-like shape,” Iloegbunam says.
2. Add to the base shape with fins and snout.
“Their fins are all triangular shapes and the snouts are typically rounded, so draw an oval shape for the front of the face, especially if you’re going for a more cartoony look,” Iloegbunam says.
3. Add a small circle for the eye and some curving lines for the mouth and tongue.
Real dolphins have eyelids, but cartoon dolphins also get to have pretty eyelashes.
