How to Draw a Megalodon Shark - Step-by-Step Tutorial
Step 1: Let's draw a Megalodon Shark! Start with a slanting, curving line, going to the right. It should then turn at a point, and slant down and to the left, before turning in to make another point that then turns down and to the right. This forms another point where the line turns into a slanting curve that goes down and to the left.
Step 2: Now put in a circle and a line near the front of the shark to make the eye and the nose. Then put in a lot of little pointy teeth in the mouth.
Step 3: Next comes to gills! These will be 5 vertical lines, that curve slightly in the middle. They will be placed behind the mouth, about midway between the top and bottom of the shark.
Step 4: For the fin and the rest of the back, make another line that slants up and to the left, starting at the end of the back you've already drawn. This line will make a point, turning down and to the left with a slight curve. Then draw a line that goes back, curving slightly, and has a small pointed bump near the rear to make the rest of the back.
Step 5: To make the bottom fin, make two lines that curve out, and then point downwards. The front one should curve back, while the other is mostly up and down with a slight backwards slant. Both should meet in a tip.
Step 6: For the rest of the belly, make a curving line that goes left and curves up. There should be a point about halfway back to make another very small fin on the bottom. The another smaller point will be behind that, near the very left-hand side of the animal.
Step 7: The rear fin is made with four lines. One slanting up and to the left, before connecting at a point to slant down and to the right. This will join with another line that slants down and to the left, curving a bit back as well. The last line will curve, but slant up and to the right to connect to the very bottom of the Shark.
Step 8: Now draw a jagged line that starts in the bottom half of the tail, and goes along the bottom of the shark. It should stop at the fin, and begin again on the other side to be drawn right to the tip of the shark's nose. This is a lighter coloration that Megalodon Sharks have.
Interesting Facts about Megalodon Sharks
Megalodon sharks are extinct fish that were prehistoric sharks. They were around when dinosaurs roamed the Earth. They were the largest of all sharks from that time period. They are in fact the largest sharks to ever live.
Did You Know?
- The teeth of megalodon sharks were seven inches long. Hence their name, which means “giant tooth.” They had thousands of teeth.
- Megalodon sharks were 40 to 70 feet long.
- Megalodon sharks ate prehistoric whales, dolphins, squid, and giant turtles.
- Great white sharks are descendants of megalodon sharks.
- Like modern-day sharks, megalodon sharks were comprised mostly of cartilage, not bone.
- The extremely wide jaws of megalodon sharks are displayed in aquariums across the globe. You can comfortably stand inside the jaw!
There are many guesses as to how the megalodon shark became extinct. At some point, the warm waters where they lived began to cool down. The colder temperatures were probably too cold for the megalodon sharks to survive. A decline in food supply is another reason researchers believe caused the megalodon sharks to become extinct. One of the main staples of their diet, the prehistoric whale, began migrating to colder waters, where megalodon sharks struggled to survive.
Draw a Megalodon Shark
Learn how to draw a Megalodon, the biggest shark that ever lived. Because, if you’re going to draw a shark, why not draw the biggest, scariest one around?
Megalodon, meaning “big tooth”, is an extinct species of shark that lived approximately million years ago. Not only was it the largest shark ever to have lived, but it was also quite possibly the largest fish ever to have lived.
The megalodon looked much like today’s great white shark, but was far bigger and more powerfully-built. You only needs to watch the 2018 movie “Megalodon” to see what one might have really looked like back then.
Now beginner artists that would like a little help in drawing their own megalodon, can get some help with a step by step tutorial. That body may look a little more complex than a regular shark, but it’s really very similar. You just need to add extra space to the head so that mouth can be opened extra wide.
The best way to get students off to a good start to any drawing lesson is to show them how to use guides as a reference point.
You may have noticed that all of the tutorials on this site have a dashed line running through the center of each step, both in the horizontal and vertical direction. If students make their own centered lines on their own paper, before drawing, they will have an easy reference to follow.
For instance, as seen in Step 1 below, this megalodon body starts on the center horizontal line, and extends up a bit and then back down to the right. The bottom is a mirrored shape reflected below.
Drawing skills are all about getting the size and placement of lines on paper, so having some visual reference point to get started, will always help anyone learn how to be a little more accurate.
So does that mean students need to draw a big fat line down the center of their paper before they start? Goodness no, please don’t! That will most likely be hard to erase and distract from any finished art. No, simply fold the paper in half both ways, make a crease, and unfold. The beauty is that by the time the drawing is done and colored in, the creases will disappear.
And now, on to our drawing project.

The 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: Start by drawing a circle near the right side of the paper as a guide for the megalodon shark's head. To draw the circle, first make four marks to determine the height and width. Then connect the marks using curved lines. Sketch lightly at first so that it's easy to erase if you make a mistake. If you're struggling to draw the circle, just trace the outer rim of a circular object like a coin or a bottle cap. Draw a curved, horizontal line across the circle. This is a guide to help you place the shark's facial features later on. For a more detailed guide on the different ways to draw a circle check out this tutorial: Four simple ways to draw a circle.
Step 2: Starting at the top of the circle, draw a long line that curves to the left as a guide for the top part of the megalodon's body. The line should slope downward. Pay attention to the length of the line in relation to the circle. At the bottom, draw a long line that slopes upward to finish the guide for this extinct shark's body.
Step 3: On top of the body, draw a vertical line that tilts slightly as a guide for the megalodon's dorsal fin. Under the body, near the middle, draw a long line that slopes to the left as a guide for the first pectoral fin. On the lower, right side of the circle, draw a line that slopes to the right as a guide for the other pectoral fin.
Step 4: On the left tip of the body, draw a short line for the first part of the tail or caudal fin. On top of the line, draw a tall, angled line that's similar in shape to an upside-down letter V for the top part of the tail. At the bottom, draw a shorter V-shaped line as a guide for the bottom half of the megalodon shark's caudal fin.
That's it for the guides! From this point on, press harder with your pencil for a more defined drawing.

The guys did not have enough seats, and it turned out that we flocked opposite the girls, and our members stood like a palisade. But the eyes of our ladies were constantly fixed on Nicholas. Nikolay, since he was the only one, was the most relaxed and constantly made jokes about this situation, which we all laughed at.
