How to Draw a Green Frog - Step-by-Step Tutorial
Step 1: Draw a curve.
Step 2: Draw a tiny circle in the point of the curve. Draw a line under it and a circle within a circle next to the line. Draw a circle with a line in it between the cheek and nose. Draw a large leaf-like shape that connects to the top end of the head.
Step 3: Draw a long line with a bump in the middle from the top of the back of the head.
Step 4: Guided by the image, draw a line that curves down from the mouth, angles back and forth to make three toes, and then goes straight back up to the bottom of the head. Draw a three-pointed crown shape between the head and first front leg.
Step 5: Again referring to the image, draw a curve that goes from the top bump to the end of the back. Draw a curve between the front leg and the back. Draw a curve going the opposite direction that connects the first to the back, and ends in a two-pointed foot. Draw a curve that connect the front and back leg, and another on the back of the hind leg.
Step 6: Draw a wavy line that curves around the eye to the cheek and rear end. And some dots below it. Done!
