How to draw a sperm whale with a pencil step-by-step tutorial.
Updated: Sep 21, 2022
Let's draw a relative of a dolphin - a sperm whale.
Sperm whales or cachalots are the largest of the toothed whales, with males up to 19 meters (62 feet) long—more than five times the length of a large elephant—and females up to 12 meters (39 feet) in length.
Step 1. Outline the shape of the whale.
Whales are the largest animals on earth, and we will now draw one such giant. Let us depict along the axis, as it were, the severed tail of a long fish. Let's denote the pectoral fin and tail flippers.
Step 2. Draw the contour of the sperm whale.
Next, with a more rounded line, draw the contour of the sperm whale with an open mouth, fins, and tail.
Step 3. Draw the details of the sperm whale: eyes, teeth, and fins.
Next, draw our sperm whale's eyes and teeth; from the bottom of the fin, we will lay a line of volume.
Step 4. Add shading to the sperm whale drawing.
In conclusion, shade the shaded places of the sperm whale, darkening in the right places to show the volume.
