STEP 1. To start, draw the basic guidelines and shapes for your catfish starting with an egg shape for the head. Add the facial guidelines and then draw the shape for the catfish's body. Drawing a catfish in this pose should be relatively easy. Lastly, draw the guidelines for the tail fin, and the anal fin.   STEP 2. Now because the catfish has such a distinctive face, drawing a catfish should be a bit more challenging than a regular fish. You will start by sketching out the shape of the mouth and head. Next, continue to draw the back and then sketch out the dorsal fin. Add some detailing and definition to the fin, and then sketch out the three pairs of whiskers and or barbels. Draw the lining for the gills, and then add some definition around the mouth as you see here.   STEP 3. Continue to sketch out the whiskers on the left side of the catfish's face. When that is done you can then draw the four fins. Before you leave this step add some detailing lines on the fins to convey the texture. Next draw a belly line which separates the two toned colors.   STEP 4. For your last drawing step you will finish sketching out the shape of the catfish's body as you see here and then continue to draw and define the anal fin. Lastly, draw the tail fin as you see it here and also add detailing to the catfish fin as well. You can start erasing all the guidelines and shapes that you drew in step one.   STEP 5. Now that you are done learning "how to draw a catfish", you can now color in this animal using any shade you wish.
