Steps To Draw A Lizard
We have a video tutorial above, you can follow it also. We try to make our tutorial simple and sweet. You can see the short demo in the image below. There are a lot of species of lizards but today we are going to draw the common lizards that we saw commonly in our houses. Follow the steps below to easily draw a lizard step by step.
We are starting by drawing a rough marking for the references. First, draw an oval slightly pointed to the left side as shown in the image above. Use a pencil to draw the circle as it is only for reference purposes. We will erase it in further steps.
Draw Rough Body
Now draw the oval roughly for the lizard’s body as in the image above. Also, draw the lizard’s forelegs roughly as in the image above. And also draw the outline of the hind legs as in the image above. At last draw a tail roughly as in the image above.
Now draw the lizard’s head by taking the references line that we drew in steps 1 and 2 fairly as in the image above. Now, use the marker while drawing it. Also, make a marking to draw the lizard’s mouth as in the image above.
Draw Foreleg and Upper Body
Similarly, draw one foreleg bending toward the head of the lizard as in the image above. And then draw the lizard’s upper body outline fairly by taking the references of the rough lines that we drew earlier.
Draw Foreleg and CLaws
Claws help lizards for crawling on the walls. Now, draw the foreleg attaching to the head and body of the lizard with a claw as in the image above. Make fingers like claws while drawing.
Complete Lizard’s Body and Hind Legs
Similarly, draw curvy lines to complete the lizard’s body as in the image above. Here make sure you draw lines from the forelegs that we draw in step 5. Also, complete a drawing of the hind leg of the lizard with a half claw as in the image above.
Draw Another Hindleg with Claws
Now draw the hind leg with the claws attached to the body of the lizard as in the image above.
Draw Long Tail
We just finished drawing a lizard’s body. Now, draw a long elongated lizard’s tail as in the image above.
Erase Rough Lines
After that erase all the rough lines that we draw on different steps for the reference lines as in the image above.
Draw Lizard’s Eye
We just finished drawing a lizard’s body. For the finishing part, draw the circular lizard’s eye as in the image above. Small curve line to make the lizard’s nose.
Coloring a Lizard
After the drawing of a cute lizard is completed we move forward with coloring the lizard. For coloring, we had chosen some basic colors.
As some lizards are green and some are brown in color, we fill the green color while coloring it. And fill the eye with the yellow color. You can fill the color according to our wish too.
Alternatively, you can fill this lizard kinda brown or light brown too.
Final Image of Lizard
After coloring, we get a realistic lizard. You can use a pencil color (we made it digital). I think we made this tutorial so simple and easy. And the coloring part is also very easy. While coloring we used a simple color.
