    Sketch in the side, upper, and lower fins. These should be small in comparison to the body of the bass, but don't worry--just add as much detail as you can and make sure they're shaped correctly.

    Outline and add more details to your fish. Make sure to sketch a smooth juncture from the lower body to the tail fin. Give your bass more scales if you want, and then color it in in dark tones like chartreuse.
