This tutorial will help you learn to draw a cartoon lobster. This aquatic animal are usually really appreciated... cooked in a plate! As far as I'm concerned, I rather spend some time learning how to draw it! And that's exactly what we are gonna do!
First, sketch a nice circle to illustrate the head of your lobster. Next, draw a small rectangle below the head to start the body of your character.
Finish drawing the body of your lobster by adding two more rectangles below the first one. Once you are done, sketch the tail by adding two oval shape in a 45 degrees angle (but facing opposite directions).
The small walking legs can be represented with lines for now. Draw each arm of your lobster using two small rectangles. The claws can be drawn with plain circles for now.
Now work the outline of your character's head by making the chin narrow and pointed. You can also add eyes and join them in the middle for a funnier effect.
Refine the walking legs and make sure that the rest of the body is smoother and rounder.
Finally, make that claws more realistic by splitting each circle in half. You can also add pupils to your character's eyes.
Just one color is needed to complete the drawing! A vivid and bright red! Like you can see, drawing a simple lobster isn't too difficult if you followed this tutorial carefully! Enjoy and happy drawing!
