How to Draw a Lobster Head - Step-by-Step Tutorial

Step 1: Begin with the head by drawing a shield shape, or a rectangle with a pointed side.

Step 2: At the pointed end of the head, draw two circles, with smaller, shaded circles on the bottom of them. Between the eyes, add a long, pointed fin shape. If you have trouble, you can draw a rectangle.

Step 3: Add some lines on the top and sides of the head for details. They look a bit like a rake.

Step 4: Add two lines beneath the fin for whiskers.

Step 5: On the left side, add the claw by drawing two square shapes, and an upside down tear drop at the end. Add a curved line within the point, and one straight line inside of it.

Step 6: For the right claw, draw 3 ovals on the side of the head, with a teardrop shape at the end. On one side of the end of the claw, add a small triangle.

Step 7: Your lobster is now finished!
