How to Draw a Crab Clipart

Illustrating a crab clipart can be a tough experience. Fortunately, it can also be a fun and rewarding experience if you are able to work with a design that is simple and easy to duplicate. This fun animal can be found virtually everywhere on earth. Covered with an exoskeleton and gifted with a solid pair of claws, this cartoon animal is definitely fun to draw. 

Below you can see the final image once all four steps are completed. Basically, you must be able to draw rectangles, circles and triangles to be able to sketch and draw this cute cartoon character. Are you ready to draw? Great! Let's see how we can create a fun cartoon crab in just four easy steps. 

How to Draw a Crab Clipart

Step 1

First, you can draw a large rectangle made from a thick outline. This shape will be used to draw the body of the crab (as well as the head). Of course, you don't need to draw exactly the same rectangle if you don't want to. Different proportions can also be considered. Be creative and only use this drawing lesson as a guideline.

Step 2

Next, it's time to work on the head of the crab. First, draw the eyes using large circular shapes. Simply look at the illustration below to see where these shapes are located. Then, add the pupils using smaller circles. Finally, you can work on the mouth of the character and draw this one using a long curved line with pointed ends.

Step 3

Great work! On top of the illustration, sketch the arms and the claws using smaller rectangles and circles. In this case, small claws were added, but you can make them bigger if you prefer. On the bottom of the cartoon character, draw three little legs on each sides of the body. You can use small triangles to illustrate these legs.

Step 4

You can complete this drawing tutorial by adding colors inside the animal. Although crabs are usually filled with a light green color in real life, they are often depicted with a bright red color in the wonderful world of cartoons (which is only accurate if the crab is fully cooked). Let's go with this version for now.
