Today you will learn how to draw a catfish in nine steps quickly and easily. Start this guide and get very useful skills.
In this tutorial, I will show you in detail how to draw a catfish. This is a large predatory fish that lives in freshwater lakes and rivers.
Catfish has a powerful long body. There are no scales on the body of the catfish, so its surface is very smooth and slippery. The head of the catfish is very wide and has a flattened shape. The mouth is very wide.
On the jaws of the catfish, there are long thin whiskers, this is the main difference between the catfish and other fish. The mustache performs an important function – it is a tactile organ with which the catfish finds food. You can see all these features in the figure.
With this step-by-step guide, you will easily draw a catfish and be satisfied with the result. The instructions describe each step in detail and this will help you achieve an excellent result.
