How to draw a shrimp step by step

Let`s learn how to draw a shrimp.

Let’s just agree that we’re looking at shrimp, not as a delicacy. Our approach is not consumer-oriented. We love and respect all fauna and those of decapod crustaceans including.

As for me,I felt special sympathy for the shrimp once met one of them. This shrimp lives in the aquarium of my friends. On the day of our first meeting it majestically walked along the bottom brightred and blue and a great bigabout 10 centimeters and with very long antennas. Then caring owners put some stones in an aquarium for their pet. The shrimp made a shelter and since that time nobody saw it`s face ,only the antennas waving from behind the rocks.

Now let’s move on to drawing a prawn side view.
