How to Draw a Cute Crab - Step-by-Step Tutorial

Step 1: Start by drawing an oval shaped body with the bottom side more flat than the top. This is the Carapace.

Step 2: Now draw three curved horizontal lines on either sides of the body for the legs. Make sure you draw three on each side and keep their ends pointed.

Step 3: Next we draw the pincers for which we draw a curved line going upwards and outwards from each side of the body, above the legs. Now draw a "U" shaped apendage at the end of each arm. Draw a curved "V" inside each U shaped arm and shade inside the claw shaped pincer.

Step 4: Now draw two circles in the middle of the head for the eye and one smaller circle inside the eye. Now shade inside the outer circle.
