Essential Drawing Supplies

Before we begin, gather your drawing materials. Any paper and pencil will do, but if you want to explore the best tools for drawing, check out our detailed guide here.

Step 1: Outline the Frog’s Body

To start, draw a jelly bean shape. Make sure one end is sharper, resembling the head, while the other end is rounded, representing the bottom of the frog.

Step 2: Add the Frog’s Eyes

At the rounded end of the jelly bean shape, draw a half-circle on top of the upper line. Inside the shape, make a second circle slightly apart from the first one.

Step 3: Sketch the Frog’s Legs

Moving back to the bottom of the jelly bean shape, create a long “C” shape starting from the pointed end. Then, above the downturn of the body shape, draw a half-oval. Repeat this step higher up the body, followed by a small line below the bottom of the jelly bean shape. These shapes will serve as guides for the frog’s legs.

Step 4: Continue Drawing the Frog’s Legs

Around halfway to the center of the elongated “C” shape (for the back leg), draw another “C” shape in the opposite direction. This indicates where the frog’s knees bend in the hind legs. Extend the front leg guideline without using fully straight lines.

Step 5: Refine the Frog’s Eye

Erase any overlapping lines on the crescent moon shape that makes up the eye.

Step 6: Refine the Frog’s Legs

Erase any overlapping lines on the hind leg closest to us.

Step 7: Draw the Frog’s Feet

Now let’s draw the frog’s feet. For the hind leg, create a batwing shape, and at the peak, form “stem-like” shapes for the toes, emphasizing the webbed feet. For the front feet, draw three toes, with the middle toe slightly longer than the others.

Step 8: Add Details to the Frog’s Eye

Fill in the frog’s eye, erase any front leg overlaps, and add small details to resemble lips.

Step 9: Decorate the Frog’s Back with Stripes

Add two lines on the frog’s back, extending from approximately the midpoint of the nearest eye, resembling racing stripes that reach the bottom of the frog’s body.

Step 10: Highlight the Frog’s Eye

Finally, add a tear duct shape, which is a little triangle, in front of the closest eye. Add highlights to bring the frog’s eye to life.

There you have it! A delightful little frog drawn from scratch. Learning how to draw a frog is a breeze, and anyone can master it!
