How to Draw an Omei Toothed Toad - Step-by-Step Tutorial
Step 1: First, draw the outline of the Omei Toothed Toad's head using a backwards C-shaped curve. Draw a circle for the front eye of the toad and draw two curved lines above it to show the eye lid. On the other side of the head, draw two small curved lines to show the other eye lid of the toad. The Omei Toothed Toad has bulging eyes on the top of its head.
Step 2: Continue the curved line of the head and make it longer to show the back of the toad.
Step 3: Draw the front legs of the Omei Toothed Toad using L-shaped lines on either side of its body. For the front leg, draw two rounded toes using an M-shaped line. Leave enough blank space to draw the hind legs.
Step 4: Next, draw the stout hind legs of the toad using curved lines as shown in the image. Draw two long and tapering toes at the end of the hind leg using slanting lines. Make the tips of the toes rounded and small.
Step 5: Draw short, gently curved lines across all the four legs of the toad to show the stripe pattern on its limbs. Draw tiny ring shapes to show the spots on the body of the Omei Toothed Toad. After you finish your drawing of the Omei Toothed Toad, you can color it.
