Frogs are smart, cute, and curious creatures, that all too often get something of a bad reputation for being unpleasant and slimy – this is far from the truth. To help celebrate how cool frogs truly are, let’s create our very own adorable frog through the power of art; are you ready to get started?
Step-By-Step Images and Instructions
Start with a dark green pen, and add a small circle to the center of your page, making the bottom a little thicker than the top.
Bring a large “backward C” shape to the right of the circle, curving this down and across to the left.
Now, add an angled “U” shape to the bottom of this for the mouth, and add a curved line to the right of this.
Draw two small dots in the “backward C” shape for the nostrils…
And then add another circle for a second eye to the top of the curved line. Add a curved line just inside the left of this.
Bring a curved line down from the left of the circle, and then add another line to the bottom of this.
Bring an angled “n” shape to the back of this line, and then add another curved line to the right of this, flicking this across to the bottom left-hand corner for the back leg.
Add the pointed toes to the end of this, with small green dots on the ends…
And then bring down two curved, parallel lines to the right of this.
Add another set of toes, complete with dots at the bottom, to this front leg.
Bring an ac curved line down from the bottom of the mouth, flicking this out slightly at the bottom, and then add a curve to the left of this.
Add three toes to the bottom to create the second front leg…
And connect this to the other front leg with a curved line at the bottom.
Next, add a large loop behind the leg you just drew.
Add a tiny mark just to the left of this, and then add toes to the bottom for the other back leg.
Grab a yellow pen, and shade the bottom of the body.
Use a gray pencil to add a small shadow to the bottom left-hand side of this…
And then use a black pen to add a small circle to the left eye, with a slightly smaller circle to the side of this, essentially creating a large crescent-moon shape.
Fill in the space to the left of the line with a black pen…
And echo this on the right eye.
Grab a green pen, and add small circles and ovals to the top and left sides of your frog.
Use a light green pen to shade the side of the right eye, the side of the left eye, and down the left side of the body, as well as the edges of the back legs.
Use a light yellow shade for the main area of the rest of the body…
And then fill in the mouth with the red pen, leaving a small half-circle shape at the end.
Fill this shape in with a pink pen.
Grab a light brown pen, and add a small circle to the frog’s left. Add a curved line to the sides, followed by two smaller circles inside these lines, and a curve at the bottom.
Use a black pen to add two small crescent-moon shapes inside the circles, just as you did with the frog…
And then use a blue pen to add a short loop to the back of the head, and two wings on either side. Then, add another loop to the back of the body for a tail.
Add small lines down the length of the tail…
And then fill the tail in with the blue pen.
Now, use an orange pen for the face of the dragonfly.
And there we have it – your very own super cute, friendly frog; all he is waiting for now is a name!
