Draw a U-shaped figure as the face of the mermaid.


This is the most important part of the mermaid drawing. Let’s draw the hair and face of a mermaid. Draw the zigzag shaped hair, two circles as eyes and a curved small line as the mouth of the mermaid. Draw two ovals as the ears on the sides of the face of the mermaid. And draw the two button shaped figures next to the ears as the earrings.


Let’s draw the body of a mermaid. Extend two parallel lines from the face as the neck of the mermaid. Curve these lines to form shoulders and then arms and hands of mermaid. Also, draw the blouse of a mermaid by drawing two squares and uniting them in the midline. Add the linings horizontally in the blouse.


Next, draw the tail of the mermaid. Draw two curve lines and join them to form the end of the mermaid tail.


Add the zigzag linings horizontally in the mermaid tail. At the end of the tail, draw a small circular puff pad of the mermaid.
