How to Draw a Lemon Yellow Tree Frog - Step-by-Step Tutorial
Step 1: To draw the Lemon-yellow Tree Frog, start with the head by drawing a wavy line that’s half a circle. Leave the right side open to make room for the wings and the body.
Step 2: Add a large round circle for the eye. Then, draw another circle inside of that for the pupil. Next, draw a small curved line along the top to make the indent for the eye on the other side. Add a very small teardrop shape for the nostril.
Step 3: Draw a long round curved line for the body.
Step 4: Next, draw a long sloped line down for the throat and tummy of the frog.
Step 5: Now let's draw the front leg by making an elbow macaroni shape with three long toes ending in circles.
Step 6: Draw another cone shape on top of that for the other leg. Keep the round style fingers.
Step 7: For the hind leg, add a Capital 'G' shape on the bottom left. Under that, add the final leg by drawing a half star shape with rounded points. Notice the pattern on the body. Draw it by making several circles inside the body of the frog. Color the frog a bright yellow or a light green.
