Easy Frog Drawing Tutorial Guide

9 levels of the steps of drawing a frog, in a row.

There are 8 steps for how to draw an easy frog (nine if you want to color it in). You’ll start with the head and work your way through the various parts of the frog.

Step 1. Draw The Body Shape

The first step is to draw the body shape. Create an egg-shaped oval for the body, then draw the frog’s head on top of the oval shape.

The head is also an oval shape that is drawn sideways.

Fun Fact
Did you know there are more than 800 different types of tree frogs across the globe?

They can even camouflage themselves to stay hidden from predators!

Step 2. Add The Back Legs

In this easy step, you want to draw the frog’s leg on each side of the body to create the important details of the frog.

They are simply oval shapes attached to the frog body.

Fun FactLily pads are floating plants that grow in slowly moving water.

Frogs love to sit on them, and they also provide shade and a place to hide too.

Step 3. Draw The Frog’s Eyes

For the next step, you’ll draw the eyes of the frog. Start by adding large circles on top of the head.

Frogs have large eyes, so be sure to make the facial features of your frog with the round circles fairly large to match the proportions of the frog.

Step 4. Create The Frog’s Knee

To make the frog look more realistic, add an oval shape to the frog’s body.

You also want to add smaller circles to the line of the head that you can erase.

This acts as a template. Create lines for each knee.

Step 5. Add The Frog’s Arms

You want to continue to draw the body of the frog by adding medium-sized circles for the frog legs, including the front legs and hind legs.

You can really see the frog’s body taking shape now!

Fun Fact
It’s important to be careful if you see brightly colored frogs, as some can be poisonous.

There are over 100 different poisonous frogs, primarily found in South America, Africa, and Australia.

Step 6. Complete The Eye’s For The Frog

Draw a curved line for the frog’s body, as well as a slight curve for the frog’s mouth.
