Plan the skeletal system of the lizard first: It should follow a systematic scheme of body arrangement that follows the natural curve of the spine and limbs. Start with the tail then the hind legs, then the fore legs, and so on, until you get to the upper part of the animal. Note that lizard has a long spindle-shaped body and so its entire body meanders in space. Both in movement and in stillness, lizard meanders smoothly.

Of course, you have to remember that learning this drawing lesson shouldn’t stop if you are already at the point where you have already purchased or acquired your own bearded dragon.

The first step you should take is to set up the drawing table by setting up a large flat surface such as a flat wooden table. With your pen, start with the upper most limb and draw it down until you reach the tail end. Note that the lizard’s entire leg and tail meander in a forward motion. To make your lizard look more realistic, you can hold a book on a similar plane as the book is turned sideways and trace your lizard’s outline with your pen.

The second step lizard drawing lesson you should learn is the one regarding the outlining. Outlining should be done in two steps. In the first step, you need to create an outline of the body and hide all its features. You can use a pencil for this purpose. You can trace an outline using a soft color such as dark brown for the lower body and a lighter color for the head and tail.

In the second step, you should erase all the portions of the previous outline you have created. Then, you should draw the legs of your lizard. First, you should draw the leg and after that, you should erase the portion of the upper leg that is in the way of the vision. After that, you should draw the three legs.

In the third step, you should continue with your lizard drawing. You should continue this by sketching out the whole body. In this case, you should keep in mind that you need to draw the head, the thorax, the femur and the tibial cartilage. Keep in mind also to draw the two eyes and the mouth. When it comes to the tail, you are free to draw it, but you should not go beyond a single point.

When you have finished with the first step, you should go to the second step. In this step, you should make use of the pencil to sketch out the shape of the head and the other parts of the body. In addition, you can create the side curves by using the pencil. When you have completed the second step, you should draw the front leg and you can continue doing so until the end of the first back leg. If you do it correctly, you will get a great lizard drawing.
