Make the tail of the whale by cutting out the same-sized small semi-circle as the fins and paste it at the left corner of the body of the whale in a way that one semicircle is slightly over the other as shown.
Step 6: Drawing Scales Of Whale
Using a blue sketch pen, draw arched scales over the white inner part body of the whale parallel to the outline of the white circle.
Step 7: Making Eye Of Whale
From the white and black paper sheet, cut out 2 eyes of the whale and paste them by pushing inside the straight line of the semi-circled body of the whale to the right side using glue.
Step 8: Pasting The Other Eye
Paste the other eye half over the body of the whale and slightly above the first eye using glue.
Step 9: Adding A Smile And Textures To The Whale
Using a white pen draw a smile below the eyes of the whale from the outline of the blue body, and from the light blue sheet, cut out a small circle using scissors and paste it beside the eyes for making the texture.
Step 10: Completing The Texture
