The rainforest frog is a colorful and extremely cute little creature that lives, as its name suggests, in the rainforest. Follow this easy tutorial to learn how to draw one!

Steps

  1. Image titled Draw a flat oval Step 1
    1
    Start by diagonally drawing a flat oval shape. This will serve as the body. For this tutorial the frog is facing upwards and to the left, but your frog can go in whatever direction you'd like--just make sure all its features are in accordance with that.
  2. Image titled Draw two circles Step 2

    Draw two circles for the frog's eyes. These should be in the upper left part of the oval, with one slightly hidden behind the protuberance of the frog's face.

    Sketch long, slim limbs on either side of the front section of the body. For the left leg, draw a long horizontal oval overlapping a long vertical oval, then put a circle under the vertical flat oval. On the circle draw four small flat ovals on the circle. For the right leg, draw only the frog's hand.
  4. Image titled Sketch back limbs Step 4

    Follow the same steps for the back legs as you did for the front. The back legs should, of course, be longer, but otherwise the structure is identical.
  5. Image titled Outline body shape Step 5

    Neatly outline the body shape over the sketch. Erase unnecessary marks and add details. Make sure to draw a long mouth and a thin pupil inside the left eye.

    Color in your rainforest frog. For a realistic depiction use light green and yellow for the back and and limbs, a very light green for the belly, orange for the paws, and red for the eyes. Add blue thick stripes to the limbs and body, and there you go, you're done!
