STEP 1. The first thing you need to do is draw out an arched shape that looks a lot like a boomerang. Draw a guide in the center of the body before leaving this step.   STEP 2. Draw the beginning parts of the shrimp's head by drawing a narrow pointed spear, and then draw in a circle for the eye.   STEP 3. You will now draw out the upper part of the shrimp's body which is the part of the shell that is usually removed when consumed. The antenna should also be drawn in and as you can see they are long, thin, and go all the way past the body as they flow backwards.   STEP 4. The tail of the shrimp is what people eat. The rest of the body should be drawn out in nonuniform layers. Start just a bot beneath the body shell, and work your way down to the tail.   STEP 5. Believe it or not but, shrimp have legs and they are tiny, skinny legs that almost look like they belong to spiders. You will need to draw out six legs and each one of them have a four part layer. The tips should be pointed and short, and as you work your way up you should make each section longer.   STEP 6. Okay, yes shrimp also have back legs too and if you happen to look at your uncooked shrimp the next time you are ready to prepare a dish, you will notice that there are in fact back legs as well. Draw in these fluttering legs, and then add the detailing at the base of the tail. Erase the lines and shapes that you drew in step one to clean up the drawing.   STEP 7. Here is what the finished drawing looks like when you are all done. Color it in and that's it. Thanks guys, I know it may have been boring, but it was definitely interesting.   Step 1. Step 2.
