Frogs enjoy spending their time in a number of ways – but a frog on a log is often the most popular way to present them. Want to create this for yourself? Then let’s get started!
Step-By-Step Images and Instructions
Begin with a wavy line at the top of your page, and curve the ends of this down. Then, add a curved line to the bottom of your page, and bring the edges up.
Connect the top and bottom lines with curved lines at either side.
Use a black fineliner to add a curved line inside this, and add a “bump” at either end for the tops of the eyes.
Draw a small circle inside each of these bumps…
And add two small, crescent-moon shapes inside this.
Next, grab a ruler and the black pen, and draw two sets of angled, parallel lines below these top shapes.
Add four “bumps” to the bottom of each for the fingers.
Bring two curved lines down on either side of the eyes…
And connect the two sides with a wavy line at the bottom.
Now, add a curved line between the two sets of parallel lines forming the arms…
And add another long, thin strip just below this.
Now, add a curved half-circle to the top of the head, and follow this with a number of small circles all around this.
Add an angled, pointed “arrow” shape to the left of the bottom of the body, with another, smaller arrow shape below this, creating a leg.
Bring down two lines from the end of this, pointing down towards the bottom left-hand corner of the page. Add two more arrows inside this to create the toes.
Add three small circles to the end of this for the toes.
Repeat this on the right side to create the second leg.
Now, add a series of long, thin strips to the bottom of the frog’s body.
Add an oval shape to the left of the frog, and bring a line across to the right. Curve this up at the right end, and then bring a line across to the left, and connect the oval shape on the left side to the left leg with another line.
Add a “point” to the top left of the log, and add a series of lines across the body of the log.
Fill in the crescent moon shapes in the eyes with a black pen.
Use a green pen to add color to the circles on the head, and the bottom of the mouth.
Use a lighter green pen to shade the rest of the head and the arms and legs of the frog.
Grab a light brown pen, and shade the main body of the log…
And then use a yellow pen for the stomach and the end of the log.
Now, grab a bright blue pen, and use this to shade the section inside the square you have drawn.
And there we have it – your very own frog on a log. All he needs now is a name!
