How to Draw a Lobster

  • Begin by drawing a long, oval shape for the lobster’s body, slightly tapered at the head end.
  • At the narrower end of the oval, draw a smaller, rounded shape for the head, with a short curve for the mouthpart.
  • Add two round eyes with pupils on the head, followed by two long, thin antennae extending from the top of the head.
  • Sketch two large, curved claws at the front of the body, with smaller, jagged edges inside to represent the lobster’s pincers.
  • Draw five pairs of legs along the body, with the front three pairs being larger and more pronounced, and the last two pairs being smaller.
  • For the tail, create a fan-like shape at the end of the body, consisting of several overlapping segments, each with a pointed end.
  • Add a segmented texture along the length of the body by drawing curved lines between the legs.
  • On the underside of the tail, draw a series of smaller, triangular segments to create the tail fan.
  • Include shading and details, such as texture on the claws and body, to make the lobster look more realistic.
