Written step-by-step video tutorial:
For the first few steps, don't press down too hard with your pencil. Use light, smooth strokes to begin.
Step 1: Draw a short, sloping line that curves at the tips for the cartoon hammerhead shark's eyebrow. Under the eyebrow, draw a small semi-circle for the first eye. The eye should slope down to the left. Inside, add a dot for the pupil.
Step 2: Draw a curved line above the eye for the first part of the "hammer" head. Draw a horizontal line to the left for the long eye socket. Continue to draw the curved line so that it encircles the bottom of the eye too. Draw a shorter horizontal line to the left to make the hammerhead's eye socket thicker. Below the eye, draw another curved line for extra detail.
Step 3: On the left, draw a curved line for the front part of the hammerhead shark's nose. Below that, draw a short, vertical line for the left edge of the nose. Below the eye socket, draw a long, curved, horizontal line for the top part of the shark's open mouth. Draw a short, curved line at the tip for a smile line. At the top, draw two tiny circles for the nostrils.
Step 4: To the left of the nose, draw a shape similar to the shape on the right for the shark's other eye socket. The shape consists of two short, horizontal lines with a big, curved line at the end that will encircle the eye. Don't make the curved line too small. It has to be big enough for the hammerhead's eye to fit inside.
Step 5: Inside the eye socket, draw a sloping line for the hammerhead shark's other eyebrow. Curve the tips of the eyebrow to make it furrowed. Below it, draw a half-circle for the eye. Inside the eye, near the right edge, draw a small dot for the pupil.
