This is an excellent kids tutorial to draw a koi fish easy and simply using a Adobe Photoshop. The artist shows you how to hand draw the body, add the fins and other features of the fish. Then you create guidelines to make a perfect pattern of scales on the fish. Next he starts texturizing the fins as well as creating a realistic flip of the tail. He then takes the outline of the fish and puts it on one layer then traces it over on the next layer. On subsequent layers, the artist paints the fish in with many colors to create depth and shadows. Finally, he creates a background that creates the illusion of movement.
