Lizard Drawing

A drawing of a lizard, made with the help of a step by step tutorial, available as a free download.

This tutorial is designed to show students how to draw a pretty realistic-looking lizard. By starting with a long oval for the body, and a short one for the head, the basic body shape will be off to a good start. Remind students to sketch lightly so those ovals can be easily erased once they are done. Lizards have an unusual profile, with lots of rounded connecting body parts, so beginning with some very simple shapes will ensure that the lizard fills the page, by the time the drawing is done.

There are about 3800 lizard species found all over the globe. They come in all colors and sizes, but every one of them does have four legs and a tapered tail. One of the more interesting things about lizards is that they can detach that tail, if need be, to get out of danger. That’s a pretty cool defense mechanism.
