Draw a Manta Ray

Step 1

Start by drawing the eyes of your Manta ray, and then join them up with the line of the head in pencil. Draw lightly at first so that you can erase easily if you want to change anything.

Step 2

Next add the two triangular elements of the head, called cephalic lobes, which help guide food into its mouth. Add the detail on its back.

Step 3

Now we can add the outline of the nearest pectoral fin.

Step 4

Next comes the outline of the furthest pectoral fin.

Step 5

Now draw in the interesting shape where the back of the pectoral fins join.

Step 6

Time now to add the line which defines the trailing edge of the pectoral fin.

Step 7

Draw in the tail to complete your drawing.

Step 8

CONGRATULATIONS! YOU’VE DRAWN A MANTA RAY!
