About Early-Stage Cockroach Nymph Molts
As with other stages of cockroach nymph development, early stage nymphs look a lot like adults. In this “How-to-draw” example, you will draw an early-stage cockroach that is gradually darkening in color.
- Begin by drawing an arced line that looks like the head of a safety pin. This will be the top part of the cockroach’s body.
- Draw a line on the right that slopes down into the shape of a hook. This will be the right side of the cockroach’s body.
- Draw a line on the lefts side that also slopes down into the shape of a hook. This will be the left side of the cockroach’s body. Allow it to overlap the right side slightly.
- Draw a dome at the top of the body. This will be the cockroach’s head.
- Draw black dots for eyes at the bottom of the dome, two antennae, and a set of arcing lines to represent jointed segments in the cockroach’s body.
- Draw six legs on the body (3 on each side), and two curved stubby lines to represent the cerci.
