I learnt to draw goldfishes when I was just in preschool. Though I was very small back then, I still managed to do a good job with this particular drawing. Even today, whenever I feel like drawing a goldfish, I follow the same approach I used back in preschool. It is a simple and straightforward way for drawing goldfishes, and even as a grown up, I appreciate that technique.
To draw a goldfish, I would always try to focus most of my efforts on the structure, especially the fins. I also kept the details and designs quite simple. To make the drawing look good, I would color it using bright shades only.
Give the goldfish a head like a fortune cookie.
Keep the mouth small and the eye round.
Draw the body as you would for a regular fish.
Draw the fins on the top of the fish and behind its head.
Draw these behind the head fins.
Give the goldfish a big wide tail.
Draw some lines on the fins.
Continue designing the fins.
Draw a few of these lines on the tail as well. These lines are not that closely packed.
Draw the scales on the fish’s body.
Use a bold pencil to sharpen the outlines on your drawing.
The drawing is done. Now you just have to color your fish.
