How to Draw a Lobster
Lobster looks somewhat similar to a Scorpion, except it has crab claws and long tail. Drawing a lobster might be difficult because it has many legs, whiskers, and a body that is segmented. However, once you get the basic outline right, drawing this creature becomes a piece of cake. It is recommended to start drawing in #2 pencil and use dark green crayons to color it in afterwards.
It is a bit challenging to draw the basic shape of a lobster's body. Start with the head, draw two claws, and then draw a slightly curved line of the tail. Tilt the right claw a bit to the left.
Doesn't it look easier from now on? Draw the lobster's tail and connection with the front part of the tail. Now we need to draw thick claws with pincers.
Even these initial contours should indicate the shape of a lobster. Add two eyes, two small front legs, and four feet on each side. Erase excess contour lines. It certainly looks like a crayfish already!
Next step is complex due to many details, so please focus. Start by drawing the side tabs of the lobster. For now, use circles to indicate anywhere the lobster's body is segmented. Finish drawing the small front legs and sketch the mustache. Continue on to the most complicated element of the lobster - its tail, which consists of several segments. Use your eraser to get rid of the circles that you used earlier.
Pay attention as you work on the claws. This is one of the main elements of the drawing, so draw them carefully, referring periodically to my drawing. If you simply color in the lobster with crayons or paints, there is no need to read further as your drawing is done with that step.
If you shade in your drawing using #2 pencil, it may look more polished or professional. Determine the source of light and where it will hit the lobster's body. Then shade in your lobster accordingly. If you are shooting for a more realistic picture of a lobster, you might want to add the underwater landscape too.
