So, how did you like the last tutorial I submitted on the crocodile, pretty easy right? I know, that is how I wanted it to be. This next tutorial is going to be on how to draw a crab step by step. What I am trying to do is fill request and categories at the same time. I haven’t drawn any animals lately and so that is what I am doing today. The crab is another salt water living crustacean that comes in a variety of shapes, and sizes. The most common of all crabs is the Dungeness crab, Alaskan king crab, spider crab, sand and rock crab and blue crab. Now as far as I know all crabs listed are edible (all but the spider crab) and when cooked they all turn red. Crabs are omnivores that have a total of eight crawling legs and two front claws. Almost all crabs have a diet that consist of plant and animal matter, mollusks, worms, and even other crustaceans that reside in the sea. Because of their odd diet they have been given the name of “bottom feeders” because they basically eat anything they can get their claws into. The makeup of a crabs body or diagram is as follows; first you have the outer shell which is called the carapace, then you have the two front claws, three pereapod legs and two swimming legs. The long rock like eyes are called the eye stalks and then they have two very long antennas. Now since crabs live in the ocean they too have a set of gills that can be found inside of their shell. They also have a heart, lungs, and every other organ needed for them to sustain life. I myself love eating crabs one of my favorites is the rock crab. Once in a while during the winter I sometimes wish it was the summer so that my mom can go and buy some crabs at the fish market. Anyways this tutorial will show you how to draw a crab step by step. Like always the instructions are easy to read and follow making this lesson a breeze to learn. I will be back with more drawing fun so stay tuned.
