Step 10: Use the main triangle as a guide to draw the rest of the head. Follow the basic path of the triangle but make the shape thinner as you darken the lines. Add some lines inside for extra detail.
Step 11: Use the line on the right as a guide to draw the first part of the praying mantis' front leg. Follow the basic path of the guide in the middle and make the shape thicker and more bulky. The middle part of the shape should be thicker and the ends pointier. Now draw the part of the arm that connects the body. This segment should be a bit thinner. Add a row of small triangle-like shapes along the first shape for the spines that help hold prey.
Step 12: Now draw the front part of the folded front leg. Make this segment thinner as you follow the shape of the line and have it come to a point. Draw the tiny spines on the left side of the shape.
Step 13: Use the angled line in the middle as a guide to draw the praying mantis' leg. The leg is made up of segments. Follow the basic path of the line as you draw the segments that make up the leg. The legs are thin, so keep close to the guides as you darken the lines.
Step 14: Use the line on the left as a guide to draw the praying mantis' final leg. Make the legs skinny as you follow the path of the guides. Divide the leg into separate segments. You can draw them in any order you'd like.
