Many of us like to head out to the beach for our vacations or holidays. I absolutely love the beach. When you are wading in the shallows, though, it’s always a good idea to look below and keep a look out for crabs. A nasty pinch by one of these boys won’t feel very good. Crabs have some interesting bodies and make great subjects for drawings. So let’s get started and take a look at how to draw a crab.
Not looking for a crab? Want to know how to draw a different animal? Be sure to visit the how to draw animals page.
Now you can draw the segmented parts of the legs. Be sure to use the lines that you drew in the previous step as guide.
Now it’s time to add some details to the shapes that you have drawn. Add a few details to the claws, and make the main body of the crab’s body a bit more rigid. You should also draw a couple of eyes and use some wiggly lines to add some interest to the “face” of the crab.
Now you have enough information to finish your drawing. Just use the shapes that you have drawn as a guide. You may choose to go over your lines with ink and then erase any pencil lines that may remain. Be sure to make the ends of the claws dark so that the finished drawing is a bit more realistic.
