Intro: Start off with a pencil sketch. In the beginning stages, don’t press down too hard. Use light, smooth strokes for sketching.
Step 1: To learn how to draw Mr. Krabs from Nickelodeon's SpongeBob SquarePants cartoon, start by drawing an oval on its side near the bottom of the page. It doesn’t have to be perfect. It’s just a guide for the crab's body. Leave enough room at the top to draw his head and eyes.
Step 2: Next, draw an arc on top of the body as a guide for Mr. Krabs' head. The end result should look like a little hill on top of the oval. The height of the hill should be a little more than the height of the oval.
Step 3: Now learn how to draw Mr. Krabs' eye guides. First draw two tall, skinny arcs on top of the hill as guides. The length of the arcs for Mr. Krabs' eyes should be a little more than half the height of both the oval and hill combined.
Step 4: Now learn how to draw Mr. Krabs' arm guides. On the left side of Mr. Krabs' body, draw a guide consists of an angled line that starts where the hill meets the oval, then angles down toward the body. At the end of the line, draw a circle as a guide for his crab claw.
Step 5: Draw a guide for Mr. Krabs' other arm on the right side of the body. This guide consists of a line that angles up toward the head. At the end of the line, draw a big circle for the claw.
