How to draw a Red-Eyed Tree Frog

Learn how to draw this little Red-Eyed Tree Frog from Costa Rica of your very own.


You will need:
- Pencil
- Pen
- Eraser
- Paper
- Colored pencils or crayons
- Ruler (suggested)


Jeff's Tips & Ideas : Use lightly sketched pencil lines first for the structure. After, use a pen to draw in the final lines. When you're finished, erase the underlying pencil lines to reveal your drawing. Then - color it!

 


Let's start! Follow step by step our easy indications below !

 

STEP 1

 

Begin your frog by shaping its head, symmetrically around a center line.  Makes for a nice little guide to maintain proportion.

STEP 2

 

Visualize its body and hands with simple shapes.  Either draw this, or think it!  :-)

Big circles for eyes.  Later - they'll be red!

And now the legs - easy to draw I think... fall in behind - obscured by that which lies in front.
