Here is an adorable version of a crab that I think you all might enjoy. Going through the animals category under the 'for kids' section, I saw that I didn't have a lesson on "how to draw a crab for kids", step by step. Crabs are very important crustaceans to draw because they are used in summer artwork and designs, as well as a great concept to use for an under water scene. Drawing a crab for kids is going to be a lot easier than taking on a lesson based on a much more detailed and more anatomy appropriate design concept. I think you will enjoy drawing a crab for kids, and if I'm wrong, just let me know. Peace out people and come meet me back here tomorrow for more drawing fun.
