Hi, I'm Al Krakosky and I'm an artist. Today, I'm going to show you how to draw a lobster. We're going to start off with the back and the head. We can draw a curved line, come out down here. We're going to put two points in the front and then we're going to separate the back and the head. So we're going to draw a curved line across so this is our back and this is our head and then behind here you're going to draw six pieces extending out to create the tail, just one, two, three, four, five and six. Then we're going to draw the actual tail. We're going to draw five pieces, one, two, three, four and five to make the tail fan out and we'll give him two circles for eyes and the front of the head and we'll draw his claw. For his arm we're going to put three pieces, one, two, three, then the actual claw, we're going to curve, come to a point, then draw a smaller piece coming out this way kind of like a thumb and we're going to make these lines over here jagged and do the same thing over here, three pieces and then draw our curve coming to a point. It kind of looks like a comma and then the thumb piece and then make this jagged and he's going to have four legs on each side. So we're going to draw four pieces extending out, four, then have the rest of the leg curve down and come to a point. Then we'll see a little bit of that on this side, draw the four pieces extending out, then just a hint of the rest of the leg. Then we're going to draw some antenna coming out and going up on both sides and then smaller ones coming out the front. Then lastly, we'll add some shading on his back and then a little bit on the back of his tail and a little bit on the head and our claws here and that's it, that is how you draw a lobster. Thank you for watching and keep on drawing.
