How to Draw a Gila Monster

Step 1

Start by drawing the head. Make two lines that come together at a curve and have a few bumps for the sides of the head. Add a tiny oval with a line on top for the eye.

Step 2

To draw the body and tail of the Gila Monster, continue from the head and make a shape almost like a crescent moon, except more uneven and bumpier.

Step 3

Draw the front leg up from the body and facing to the right. Make sure to add five toes to the foot of the Gila Monster.

Step 4

Draw the other front leg so that the long toes are blocked by the rest of the leg and draw a curve looping back as the end of the leg. Imagine that you are looking right down at it, and can only see a few tiny bumps for the toes.

Step 5

Draw the hind leg just like the first front leg except a little bit smaller.

Step 6

Draw the other hind leg like the other except hide a little of the foot and a toe with the leg itself.

Step 7

Draw the pattern by adding lots of straight lines to the end and using other shapes and circles on the body.
