Step 1: Let's start with the head. Draw a circle with a point at the top. To add the features to the face, draw two circles for the eyes, two dots for nostrils, a smiley mouth and a pointy tongue!

Step 2: To draw the body, draw a curve for the top of the back, and a curve under the chin.

Step 3: Now we can draw the hands. Draw an arm on the right-hand side with a bend at the elbow. Add a hand with four fingers. Draw the other hand in the same way on the other side. Copy the front leg on the back of the body for the back leg.

Step 4: Add the tail by drawing two big curvy lines with a spiral in.

Step 5: You can make it more detailed by adding a line of zig-zags along the back for the spikes. Draw some stripes down on the back. You've finished your iguana! Make sure you colour it in green!
