How to draw a mermaid simple step by step

  1. Let’s start by drawing the head. Draw a circle shape for the head, but make the chin a bit pointy. Add long wavy hair- kind of like octopus hands. Add a tiny bow onto the hair.
  2. Draw more wavy hair sections onto the other side of the face. You could also add ears onto the sides of the face at this point, I’m pretending that all that hair hides the ears here. Add simple facial features- two curves for the eyebrows, two opposite curves for the closed eyelids, a small nose and a mouth.
  3. For the body, start by adding a neck and then curving it out into shoulders and sides of the arm. Add chest and and two lines to start the belly area.
  4. Finish off with a curved mermaid tail. Add fins and rows of tiny U shapes as scales. Add a small belt detail if desired.
