Hi, I'm Al Krakosky and I'm an artist. Today, I'm going to show you how to draw a crawfish. Going to start off with the face area. Draw a curved line, come down to a point. Then curve back around and close that off. We're going to draw a line down the center of that, following the curve. And a line coming down diagonal on both sides. Then from here, you're going to draw some curved half circles, five of them, coming from the front shape. There's two, three, four, and five, and they're going to be curving up like that. Then on top here is going to be his tail. You're going to draw four of these shapes coming out. There's two, three, and four. Then from here we'll give him eyes, and then we're going to start drawing his arm. You're going to have it in three pieces. One smaller piece, one medium piece, and then a longer piece. Then at the end of this, it's going to be his claw. We're going to curve out and then jagged lines on the inside. And he'll have another arm on this side. So again one, two, three pieces. And then the claw. Jagged on the inside, then he's going to have four legs on each side. So we're going to draw four rectangles coming out, three and four. Then long lines coming down from each rectangle. And we'll see a little bit of that on this side. So we'll draw the four. Then in the back here you'd see a little bit of the legs. And lastly, two curvy lines coming from the front of the face. And then we can go back and add a little bit of shading. Use some on the tail, some on his back, and a little bit on his claw over here. And that's it. That is how you draw a crawfish. Thank you for watching, and keep on drawing.
