Coconut Crab Drawing Step by Step
Let’s draw a Coconut Crab, one of the largest crabs. To draw the head, create a rounded rectangle with two circles on top for the eyes. Next, draw a small nose shape as shown and another small line below the curve.
For the crab’s back, draw a large circle behind the head.
To draw a beard, draw two long curved lines from the front of the head. Coconut crabs have a very good sense of smell so they can easily locate food.
Draw the chelipad or leg first by creating several connecting bubbles until you reach the claw at the end. Add two small, pointed cones to make pliers.
Now add the other front chelipad by drawing much larger ovals to make them connect together. Draw the one at the end with a large claw. Their claws are so strong that they can even break coconuts!
Now draw the front leg by adding more bubble ovals along a straight line. Add a curve in the back for the far leg.
Next, draw another leg, but this time, make the shapes a bit more rectangular. Don’t forget points!
For the back legs, draw two smaller bubbles in the back.
