Hi, my name is Jessica and I'm an artist and today we're going to draw a cartoon shrimp. So the first thing we're going to do is we're going to make this kind of C shape which is going to be our shrimp. Our shrimp is going to have this little tail, because they have these little fins that come down and it has kind of a big round head. The fun part of doing a cartoon is that you can really do anything that you want. There's almost no way to mess up doing a cartoon. So we're going to give him a little bit of a, actually we're going to make this shrimp a her but she has these sort of lines on her back like a shrimp may and then she has these lines on her little fins like that. Our shrimp has, we're going to put both eye side by side like so and she's got these cute very expressive eyebrows that just come right up off of her face and she's got this adorable little smile and little fun eyes, maybe we'll give her a few eyelashes since she's a lady shrimp and we'll give her some teeth, there you go. She even, maybe she even has braces, our little shrimp girl. Now our little shrimp cartoon also has these little arms that come out and she has this kind of antennae that come out. Our shrimp girl wants to be a musician so she's also going to be playing a guitar. So we're just going to draw the guitar kind of right on top of her just like that. It doesn't really matter if she's playing it or not as long as she's holding it people will get the idea. And that's how you draw a cartoon shrimp.
