As an artist, being familiar with most shapes helps us design different sharks.

Most cartoon sharks are long and curvy, but if you want to be unique, you can use circles and squares.

Focus on the shark’s body first, take a hard long look at the big shapes.

Also, when drawing cartoon sharks, pay close attention to its fins.

The shark’s dorsal fin has a special curve that makes it different from other fish.
