Draw two circles for the sharks head and then draw the facial guidelines. You will then draw another circle that is wrapped around the head shape of the front facing shark. Next draw an egg shape for the other side view shark and then draw the tail fin lines.   STEP 2. Next sketch in the beginning lines for the sharks face which includes the brows that are in a mean look and then draw an arched line for the nose of the front facing shark face.
