Begin by drawing the head of your iguana. You need to make sure that the head is rounded, because if not, it will look like the head of an animal with a long neck. Draw three straight lines intersecting the circle in the middle. This form the upper and lower parts of the iguana’s face, and also his lower jaw line. This is the first part of your iguana drawing step 1.

The second step to follow in iguana drawing is to add the tail to it. Draw two horizontal lines that meet at the tip of the tail. These should be equal on all sides. Add one vertical line and one horizontal line that connects the two points. This creates the first part of the iguana tail.

The third step is to create the second part of your iguana drawing. This involves creating the second set of spikes that will extend from the tip of the tail to the rest of its body. Use a soft colored pencil to draw these spikes. It is better to use a high quality graphite pencil for this part. After creating these first set of spikes, it is time to move on to the lower part of your iguana drawing.

In the second step, you will need to add two more horizontal lines that join the previous step with the first leg. These should also be about half an inch apart. Now that you have these lines, it is now time for the fourth step in your iguana drawing. You need to add three horizontal lines that connect to the previous step and the first leg.

Next is the part of drawing your iguana that involves the final details. You need to add the four sets of spines on the legs and tail. Start from the tail end, and slowly draw the spine outward. You will need to use a soft fine tipped pencil to help create these spines.

First of all you need to make sure that you have drawn your head at the same level as your trunk. Secondly you need to make sure that the top of your head is about two to three inches above the bottom of your shoulders. Finally you need to line up your jaw line with the rest of your head.

Finally, add some green iguana sounds and a few spikes on your lower stomach. You can draw your head, torso and tail in different colors.
