It is clear that before starting to teach you how to draw any animal, I must first learn myself. When I studied  drawing of a crab, I read a lot of information about the structure and life of these decapod. Very interesting animals, but Idon`t intend to tell  you much – too complex scientific terminology. For example, Cluster means that  the crab has jaw on the thorax, and thorax means chest.

So I’ll just mention that in contrast to crayfish,crabs,  called tailless, their abdomen curled under the thorax and clinging tightly to it, therefore, when viewed from above there is no hint of a tail.
But enough biology, it is time to move to our tutorial -how to draw a sea crab turned to face us.
