How to Draw a Crab/ Step by Step Tutorial
Step 1. We’ll start off by drawing his body! Let’s draw an oval shape 🙂
Step 2. Then we are going to draw eyes. Please look at the sample. Slightly above his body, and left side…. we’re drawing his eye. 1 big circle and 1 colored circle.
Step 3. Then connect the Crab’s eye ball to his body, adding two lines.
Step 4. Do you want to give the Crab eye lashes!? Why not? 😆
Step 5. Repeat Step 2,3,4 – for the right eye . Now the Crab has both eyes. 🙂 Looking Good!
Step 6. It’s a happy crab. We should give him a big smiling mouth, shall we? To do it, draw two almost diagonal lines inside of his body.
Step 7. And we connect those lines with one big happy mouth line!
Step 8. Alright! Let’s move on to draw a craw. …Let’s draw an oval on the bottom, but give a crack. It looks like a cracked egg, doesn’t it?
Step 9. Adding the other “cracked egg’ shape. Be sure the bottom of it touches against the first one that you had drawn. 🙂
Can you see now it looks like a craw?
Step 10. Just like eyes, we are connecting the craw to his body.
Step 11. Repeat Step 8-9-10 for the other craw.
Step 12. So far So good? We’re going to draw his legs! We want to draw 3 legs on each side, right and left. So make sure it has enough space to draw all the legs. 🙂 The top leg is the biggest, and it becomes smaller as you draw the 2nd and the 3rd.
Step 13. 2nd leg.
Step 14. last, 3rd leg. This is the smallest one.
Step 15. Repeat step 12-13-14 onto the other side of this body.
DONE!!!! Good job!!!!!
