How to Draw a Baby Shrimp - Step-by-Step Tutorial

Step 1: Let's get started on your baby shrimp! Draw a large circle for the eye and fill it in.

Step 2: Next, let's draw the antenna. Starting from your baby shrimps eye, draw a thin rectangle with a very thin triangle right after it.

Step 3: Now, we'll draw the body. Draw a long, slightly curved rectangle for the body. Draw one more line across the middle of the body.

Step 4: At the back of the body, draw a thin triangle that sort of slopes downwards for the tail. Draw an oval and a right angle line for the insides of your baby shrimp.

Step 5: Next, let's work on the back legs. Now this part is pretty tricky. Shrimp have quite a few legs. Similar to the antenna, draw multiple curved, mini rectangles with thin pointy triangles on top. Follow the picture as best you can.

Step 6: Draw the front legs the same way.

Step 7: To finish up, add all the various patterns a shrimp has on its body. Your baby shrimp is done!
