koi fish drawing

0:00
in this lesson i’m going to show you a
0:01
fun way to draw a koi fish i hope you’re
0:03
going to follow along with me now this
0:05
lesson is a little more advanced so it
0:07
is meant for older kids 13 and up now
0:10
for this lesson you need something to
0:12
draw with i’m going to use a marker you
0:14
need some paper and also some coloring
0:16
supplies at the very end all right let’s
0:18
get started we’re first going to draw
0:19
the shape of our fish and we’re going to
0:22
start up here we’re going to draw the
0:23
tail up at the top and we’re going to
0:25
draw it curling or curving down towards
0:27
the bottom so we’ll start up here and
0:29
we’re just going to draw a curve
0:33
that comes down to the bottom of our
0:35
paper
0:36
then we’re going to come back up to the
0:38
top and we’re going to start close to
0:40
this line the first line we drew and
0:42
we’re going to draw another line that
0:43
curves down
0:45
and as we get towards the bottom we’re
0:47
going to get further away from the other
0:49
line so up here we’re close and down
0:51
here we’re further away
0:53
next we’re going to connect these two
0:55
lines with a curve or u shape so we’ll
0:57
start here
0:58
we’ll come down
1:00
curve and then connect to the other side
1:04
now let’s draw the fins up here at the
1:06
top let’s first connect these two lines
1:09
with another curve
1:11
then we’re going to start here we’re
1:12
going to draw the tail fin
1:14
and this is
1:16
this is where you guys can use your own
1:17
creativity and change your drawing you
1:20
really don’t have to match exactly what
1:22
i’m drawing since it’s a fish it’s
1:24
swimming through water the fins can
1:26
curve and turn different directions okay
1:29
so there’s our first line it’s a vanessa
1:30
line we can draw the bottom of the
1:33
telephone we’ll start down here on the
1:34
bottom
1:35
i’m just going to curve and make another
1:38
s curve
1:39
and you can do that any direction you
1:41
want
1:42
now let’s draw the back fin i’m going to
1:44
draw a line that starts here
1:46
and it’s going to curve down the middle
1:48
of the back
1:51
now i’m going to draw the top of the fin
1:52
and we’re going to make a really cool s
1:54
line i’m going to start here at the
1:56
beginning of that line we’ll curve up to
1:58
the edge of the body
2:00
cross
2:02
that center line and then curve back to
2:04
the end
2:05
now after we draw all the main shapes of
2:07
our fins we’re going to go back in and
2:09
add more lines so this is the top line
2:12
to the back fin
2:14
all right now let’s draw his side fins
2:17
well let’s first draw the front we’ll
2:18
draw a line that
2:20
occurs out of the body and back
2:23
and then we could do the same thing over
2:24
here on this side
2:27
curve another line out and back
2:31
cool now they usually have another
2:33
smaller fin on the side of their body so
2:36
let’s start here and we’ll make another
2:38
curve out
2:39
and we’ll do the same thing over here on
2:41
this side
2:42
this is going to be such a cool drawing
2:44
because it’s filling our page the whole
2:46
drawing is taking up all of the space on
2:49
our paper now let’s come back up here to
2:51
the front of our fish let’s draw the
2:53
eyes we’re going to draw a an oval over
2:56
here on this side that’s a squished
2:58
circle so the shape of their eye is a
3:00
circle but because we’re looking down on
3:03
his head or her head we’re going to draw
3:06
it squish so it looks foreshortened
3:08
now let’s do the same thing on the other
3:10
side now on this side we’re only going
3:11
to draw part of the oval and that’s
3:13
because more of the eye is hidden back
3:16
behind the fish now up here on the on
3:19
the front they have a few fillers or
3:21
little
3:22
kind of it looks like whiskers that come
3:25
out of their mouth
3:26
or the cheek
3:29
so i’m going to draw an s line that
3:30
curves out and back in
3:33
cool let’s let’s repeat that same step
3:36
on the other side of our fish
3:40
oh it’s so cool
3:41
i’m also going to add another curve up
3:43
here maybe for the lips on our koi fish
3:47
oh and i forgot we need to add
3:50
another oval inside of that first one we
3:53
drew this one we can color in
3:56
and we can also do the same thing over
3:57
here just draw half of the oval
4:00
and color it in all right cool now let’s
4:02
add all of the extra lines to the fins
4:05
on our fish so let’s start up here i’m
4:07
going to draw a line right next to the
4:10
first one we drew
4:11
you can even turn your paper sideways
4:13
sometimes that makes it easier to draw
4:16
so i’m gonna draw a bunch of these i’m
4:18
gonna fast forward the video but you
4:20
guys at home can pause
4:22
the lesson to take time to finish this
4:24
step
4:31
now remember these lines don’t have to
4:33
look exactly like yours you can use your
4:35
own creativity to add that texture now
4:38
the end of the fin let’s go through and
4:40
connect each of these lines so they all
4:43
kind of come out at different lengths
4:45
and then when we come through and
4:47
connect them we can draw an s curve that
4:50
goes through and kind of wiggles through
4:52
and connects all of those lines now
4:54
let’s move to the top fin and i’m going
4:57
to draw lines
4:58
the same way that we drew the texture up
5:00
here on the tail fan we’ll just come
5:02
down and connect
5:05
through that first shape then we can
5:07
come back here and dry additional lines
5:10
connecting through that second shape of
5:12
that top fin
5:18
isn’t that cool it makes it look so 3d
5:20
looks like you can see the right side of
5:22
the top fin
5:23
over here and then it flips over and you
5:25
can see the other side
5:27
okay now let’s add more lines over here
5:31
for the side fins so we can start close
5:34
to this first line
5:36
and then as we curve and we kind of
5:37
match that first line we can get further
5:39
away
5:41
towards the end of the fan
5:44
now i’m going to fast forward this part
5:45
also so remember to pause the video to
5:48
take that extra time to finish
5:59
i hope you had a lot of fun with that
6:00
step now let’s go through and we’ll do
6:02
the same thing we did on the tail we’ll
6:04
connect all of the lines with an s curve
6:07
that comes through
6:09
and finishes that
6:11
side fin so we’ll do the same thing with
6:14
this back one
6:15
and over here on the other side
6:25
all right we did it we finished drawing
6:26
our koi fish that was so much fun it
6:29
looks really cool now it’s going to look
6:30
even better once we color it this part
6:33
you can use your own creativity and have
6:35
a lot of fun changing your fish now i’d
6:38
recommend doing a search on google to
6:40
look at all the different types of koi
6:42
fish you can look at all the different
6:44
patterns and colors and find one that
6:46
you really like then use that as
6:48
inspiration to color your fish now i’m
6:50
going to color my fish but i’m going to
6:52
fast forward this part so at the end if
6:54
you want to match the same coloring you
6:55
can do that also just pause the video
6:57
and then use my drawing as inspiration
7:00
for your drawing
7:12
[Music]
7:21
so
7:26
[Music]
7:36
i hope you guys take time to color your
7:38
drawings also they look so much better
7:40
colored in i use markers and colored
7:43
pencils but you can use whatever you
7:45
want to color in your drawings i used
7:47
the markers first i used orange to
7:49
create all of the spots i used light
7:51
gray and dark grey to add the shading
7:53
and also the scale texture then i used
7:56
the white and yellow to add a highlight
7:58
down the middle of the fish i used the
8:00
blue along with the two grays to create
8:03
shading this makes the fish look more 3d
8:05
when you add the shadows and also the
8:07
highlight the highlight makes the fish
8:09
look shiny and the shading makes the
8:11
fish look more 3d i hope you had a lot
8:13
of fun following along with me and
8:15
drawing your own koi fish i hope you use
8:17
your own creativity to change your
8:18
drawings also be sure to take a photo of
8:21
it and post it on instagram because i
8:22
can’t wait to see how your drawings turn
8:24
out and we’ll see you later art friends
