#59 The Crab (Heike crab or Heikegani)

Animalia: Day 42
The Crab

Last time I was in Japan, my dad told me about Heike crabs.

They're special cause they got samurai faces on they backs.

My drawing is pretty faithful to the actual things, except that I pulled
details from a few different examples in order to make it super face-like.
The biggest change I made was moving the circles that make the pupils up a bit,
so that they were contained within the eye area, normally they are just outside of it.
You can read about them on Wikipedia, and see some pictures here.
