Start by drawing a series of overlapping curves. This will form the body of the oyster.
Next, draw a long wavy line through the front and bottom of the body, enclosing the entire shape of the body. This also forms the scalloped edge.
Continue the wavy line around the front and top of the oyster, connecting again with the body at the back. This part encloses another part of the shell.
Draw another scallop-shaped line around the shell, parallel to the original line. Connect it to the original line at each end.
At the bottom of the shell, near the back, draw a “U” shaped line, connecting it to either side of one of the edges of the shell’s wavy line. This starts at the bottom of the shell. Then use a series of curved lines, each starting in front of the next scalloped edge and joining the previous one.
Starting at the top of the shell, draw a long, wavy line. Duplicate the line back to itself so it almost touches the other side of the shell.
Next, draw a wavy line inside the upper part of the shell, parallel to the original line. Then draw curved lines up from the body of the oyster.
Draw short curved lines to the frills of the scalloped edges on the back of the lower case. Draw a few curved horizontal lines through the inside of the top case. Then draw a curved line from the back of the bottom shell of the oyster to a point on the scalloped edge of the top shell. Draw a series of similar, overlapping lines, until the upper shell is complete. The last few lines should connect to the scalloped edge.
Draw a curved line through the center of the oyster’s body, with a circle resting on it. Draw two circles of different sizes within the circle. This is the pearl of the oyster.
Color your oysters. Oyster shells are usually black, gray or brown on the outside, but have a special color called pearl inside. This rainbow-colored material has an iridescence, which means it appears to change color when you look at it from different angles.
