How to Draw a Betta Fish
Draw a long, slightly curved horizontal line. This will serve as the guideline for the fish’s body.
Draw a larger curved line above the initial line to create a fish fin, as shown in the picture.
Extend the body line outwards and create a large, ornate, wavy tail, typical of betta fish. The tail should look almost like a fan with scalloped edges.
Sketch the dorsal fin on top of the body with a wavy line for the edge to give it a flowing appearance.
Add the pectoral fin by creating two curved lines, as shown in the picture.
Draw the bottom fins using a similar wavy pattern, starting from the belly.
Give more definition to the face by darkening the eye and adding detail like the pupil. You can also refine the shape of the mouth and add any additional details you feel are necessary.
Add more details to the fin as shown in the pictures.
Add any final details such as scales by drawing small, overlapping lines along the body. Enhance any parts of the fins or body that need more definition.
Color your betta fish, typically with vibrant and contrasting colors. Bettas are known for their brilliant hues, so feel free to use creative liberty here.
