Learning How To Draw A lizard – Step 1
So you want to learn how to draw a lizard. You probably have seen them in books or on television and even thought about drawing one yourself. The good news is you can draw a lizard without ever leaving your house!
First you need to prepare your supplies. You will need a sheet of cardboard, graphite pencils or mechanical pencils, two colors that match each other, a sheet of paper that is at least two inches by two inches, and either a brush or rags. Next you want to prepare a warm comfortable environment. You are going to do this while sitting or laying down. This should be a place that is not too hot or cold. Lighting is also important so you can see what you are doing.
The next step in your lizard drawing adventure is to draw the head. First put the head on your sheet of paper and make sure that you get an accurate representation. Now will color where it goes i.e. the top of the head. This may seem simple but if you did this step correctly, your lizard head will look like a lizard actually took a bite off your paper.
Moving on we will continue with the rest of our sketches. The next step in this tutorial will be to draw the body. For the body, simply line it up as it appears on the top of your page. Next you will want to color in the little spikes that are on its legs. Do this by placing a dot in each spot. That way when you get to the end of the drawing you have your little Spiked beard!
The last step in this lizard drawing tutorial will be to add the legs. To do this first draw your lizard’s leg, and then its tail. You will know that you have the right lengths as the legs will be the same length as the tail. Next you want to add the legs, and now you have a very realistic looking lizard walking about on your paper.
The final step in this short but informative tutorial will be to add the eyes. To do this first draw your lizard’s eye. If you are drawing a red leopard lizard, then use the dot grid to make sure that you place the dot in the exact spot. Next draw a line going from corner of eye to corner. Repeat these steps to make your lizard look really realistic.
