Let`s learn how to draw a Carp. We continue the theme – how to draw a fish.
Carp is a relative of the sazan, just more domesticated. Carp can live in rivers and lakes.If the carp lives in running water, it has a more elongated torso and in still water carp is short and thick. Carp feed on crustaceans,worms and fish. In winter they are covered with a layer of mucus and hibernate. The body of a carp is covered with a dense layer of scales.But there are species generally glabrous or with a few huge scales.
Biological aspects we have discussed, turn to the first lesson -how to draw carp.
Carp drawing step by step
Start with a pencil draft:
The body broadly-oval,with a pronounced back hump. The abdomen is relatively flat. The head is large.
The caudal fin is large and forked. At the beginning of the dorsal fin has a long spine. On the underside of the fish has paired pectoral and pelvic fins and a single anal fin. The head is triangular in shape, round eyes set in the center. Around the mouth there are two pairs of antennae –tentacles.
Well, we have learned to draw carp – side view, but this picture is very simple and more appropriate as an illustration in a textbook. If we want to create expressive dynamic way, we need to learn how to draw carp in motion.
