How to Draw a Dolphin
I am so excited to share this dolphin drawing tutorial with you! There are loads of great ways to color in your dolphin, but for the purposes of this tutorial, we will use as blue dolphin. If you would like to color your dolphin any other color, go for it.
To follow along with this dolphin drawing guide, please use the blue lines as your reference. The blue lines in each step are indicators of what you should be drawing. For example, you will see the front fin of your dolphin is drawn in blue on the third step. That means you should be drawing the front fin at that time.
