Learn how to draw a lobster clip art using a basic template made from simple shapes and plain colors. Drawing a cute cartoon lobster has never been easier. Indeed, these adorable sea creatures are quite recognizable. Often depicted with a red color (which is usually the color they are once cooked), lobsters have many feature that are hard to miss. First, they are gifted with large circular claws. They also have several short legs and a unique tail. Let's see how we can draw this fun animal using a simple step-by-step tutorial perfect for beginners.
One single shape is required for this first step. We need to draw a large rectangle to form the body and head of the character. All lines are pointed and sharp near the end. Make sure that the shape is slightly narrower on top.
It's time to put a nice expression on the animal's face. First, draw two large circles to illustrate the eyes. Both pupils are made from simple dots. Eyebrows are created from short lines. The mouth is done using a mix of curved and straight lines.
A nice cartoon lobster needs to have impressive claws to remain recognizable. Both claws are drawn over the head of the character. This posture is very common and also more dynamic.
First, draw the claws using long curved lines. The part found inside each claw must be smaller. Then, draw long arms to connect both claws to the body. Drawing both claws first will make it easier to use the space found in your working area.
Let's move down to the bottom part of the cartoon character. You can now draw six short legs made from broken lines. Since our goal is to create a cute version of this animal, adding short legs is recommended. You can try adding longer legs if you prefer, but the result might feel different.
On the bottom of the illustration, you can draw the tail of the lobster clip art. This part is mostly made from short curved lines. Inside the body, you can also draw long pointed lines to separate the body in three different sections.
This fun character can now be filled with bright colors. Of course, most of the animal is colored in red. Both pupils are filled with a bright blue color while the teeth are gray. The mouth and the eyes can be white.
I hope you had fun working with this simple cartoon animal. Below you can see all steps needed to illustrate this sea creature properly.
