How to Draw A Lobster

Not only can it become a good meal, but you can also learn how to draw a lobster to create a cute cartoon illustration! This fun animal is often created with red colors, but these colors are the ones found after the lobster was cooked. A lobster is usually green (or something close to it). This tutorial is all made in black-and-white so it's up to you to decide whether this character should be green or red! :)

The illustration below represents the final step. For this series, I have decided to create cartoon characters with no outlines. Of course, I will use black outlines for each step needed to learn how to draw this cute cartoon lobster.

How to draw a lobster

Step 1

First, draw the head of the lobster using a large circular shape. Place this new shape on top of the illustration. Leave a little bit of room on top of the head so that you can draw the claws later in the drawing lesson.

Step 2

Time to add the body! First, draw an oval shape below the head. Make this shape smaller than the head. Draw a second shape (similar shape, but smaller) below the one added in the first place. Complete this step with the addition of the tail using two oval shapes.

Step 3

Great! Now draw two long rectangles to form the legs holding the claws. The claws are made from circular shapes. On the bottom of the illustration, add six legs using small triangles.

Step 4

Move on with the creation of the eyes and the pupils. Use circles to illustrate both elements. Notice how the pupils are not centered inside the eyes, but rather placed near the middle of the illustration.

Finally, draw the mouth using a long curved line and add small oval shapes on the pupils to complete this cartoon animal.
