The first line is a line for the bottom it is almost straight but curves down a little at the chest and then up slightly at the front. The second line is curved for the back. The curve is highest over the shoulder and long going down to the tail.
The fins are all triangles at first then you need to make them rounded. The dorsal fin is the one on to the top and is near the center.
