How to Draw a Frog
If you are a beginner, it is best to draw any animal in stages. Initially draw the general outline and then add more and more details. Drawing the rough sketches of a frog shouldn't be too difficult. Work on the oval of the torso and two ovals of the legs and put a triangle in place of a head. You can also draw a stone on which the frog sits or the lotus leaves floating on the lake water. Let's learn how to draw a frog in # 2 pencil.
Draw an outline of a Frog. Your drawing should go smoothly if you start with drawing three ovals, as shown in my picture. Work on the contours of the torso, the hind legs, and the head. Also add a dash for the front paws. At this point it might be hard to imagine that this is a frog's outline, but you will see how these ovals get gradually transformed into a frog, as if in a fairy tale where a frog turns into a Prince.
The Frog's head. It is easy to draw two lines connected at an angle. These lines will serve as contours for the frog's head. Add two lines for the hind legs. Well, does it look more like a drawing of a frog now?
Drawing the frog's legs. Draw the initial front contours of the frog's legs as two parallel lines and add the "fingers". Do the same for the rear legs. Don't forget to add a pencil line below a belly and draw an extra line above the back. Now is the time to erase extra contour lines. Look, it's as if the frog is coming to life!
Check all proportions of your Frog drawing. At this step you should check the proportions your drawing. Make any changes now, if necessary. Draw two arcs for eyes and pay attention to the frog's tail. A frog loses the tail when it matures but a small bump remains.
Final step to drawing a frog. Well, here we are! Our drawing of a frog is complete. You just need to paint it and draw the landscape. Before coloring in your drawing, remember to have your frog rest on a stone or a lotus leaf, as shown in my picture. Frogs are usually green in color but you can also shade it in with # 2 pencil.
