How to 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.

When you finish your Manta Ray drawing why not color it in like this!

I used watercolor paints and masking fluid, both available from BLICK art supplies.
