STEP 1. Are you ready? Okay, lets start off by drawing the guidelines to this bug. The scorpion has a curved tail so when you attempt to draw this, just remember that every step will show you what to do next. Draw an oblong square looking shape for the head of the scorpion, Then draw two curved lines for the "lets call them arms" on the tips of the lines draw two oval shapes for the claws. Then from the body draw a total of eight lines for the legs four on each side. If you look at the sketch at this point it resembles a cockroach.   STEP 2. Now what you want to do is focus on the tail end that is sorta part of the body as well. From the head back draw straight lines that curve at the tip on both sides and close them off at the to by combining them into a pointed stinger. On the body/tail draw lines going across to section of the appearance a total of 11 lines that get smaller the further they go up. Now the claws, add some simple circling to create a thickening look.   STEP 3. On this step what you want to do is the same thing you did to the front legs on the eight back legs until you get the resemblance of spider legs. Now can you see why they are part of the spider family. Take your time you want them to all come out even and portioned. Sketch in the two choppers and lobster looking claws. After you finish here move on.   STEP 4. In this step what you want to do is detail the scorpion and define the body with some line thickening. As you can see in this step the scorpion looks bold. The body needs to be shaped as well by rounding off the sides which is very simple. See now didn't I tell you this was going to be easy. I'm such a good teacher. Hey by the way did you know? Scientists aren't sure why, but scorpions are fluorescent under ultraviolet light.   STEP 5. That's it you are done all you need to do before your sketch can look like this is erase all the guidelines and pencil marks that I'm sure are all over your paper. I'll smell you later people.   Step 1. Step 2. Step 3. Step 4. Step 5.
