Below is a step-by-step drawing tutorial.
I used a 4H pencil to draw the highlights and lines, a pencil B to shade/generally line the shading, and an 8b pencil to do the background shading. I love the 8B pencil, but 6B and 4B pencils are also good options.
Let’s begin with a sketch of the frog. Your sketch should be constructed using the following basic shapes: rectangle, circle, oval and triangle. Because the shape of the frog’s head is so circular, I used basic circles to draw my sketch. It is easier to begin with a head shape and work around it. This step was done with pencil B, but you can use any pencil as long as your sketches are light.
Use the same pencil to define your forms. Your lines will be darker. Begin at the top and work your way down. You should be focusing on the defining features of your face (eyes and nostrils, lips) right now.
Identify the left leg and chest of the frog. Don’t forget to capture all details.
Identify the front legs remaining on the frog. Keep in mind that the feet will appear bigger due to the angle of the camera. Closer objects always seem larger.
Now, define the back and hind leg. To make my frog look like a Quasimodo, I shaved my back. You can delete any sketch that looks messy at this stage and then fix it.
To shade the background and the wood where the frog is chilling, I used an 8b pencil. Pay attention to the direction of your lines. While this shouldn’t be an issue for the background, make sure that your lines are parallel to the edge.
To shade the head of the frog and the background, I used the 8B pencil. Your shade should be very light. This class is intended to be used as a foundation. This layer can be easily smudged, erased, and blended.
Although it looks like a hug jump, this step is actually not. Begin by drawing the outline of your tip with pencil B. Next, create the background using an 8B pencil. The eyes of the frog are first drawn. Use pencil B to draw the shadows and darkest lines. An 8B pencil is recommended if you require a darker shade. The 4H pencil was used for my eyelids. The B pencil can be used if the 4H pencil isn’t creating enough shadows. Round strokes are the best way to achieve rough texture. To select highlights and light blends, you can use a kneaded remover.
Use the 8B pencil for shading the lower right quadrant. Use wood, platform, frog legs, and the chest area to build your model.
To define your legs and bust, use the 4H pencil. To create dark values, don’t press down with the 4H pencil. Instead, switch to pencil B and shade lightly. Remember the darkness! You can hint at the shadow that the frog is creating by using pencil B. The 4H pencil can be used to create the wood grain. Pay attention to the direction of the line!
Shade the front and back legs with the 8B pencil It is possible to build on wood.
Use the 4H or B pencils to create some shading. Pay close attention to where the ball is located. Shaders shouldn’t be too detailed.
Use your most soft pencil to create your background. This is why I used the 8B pencil to draw this. To make the frog stand out more, I wanted the background to be very dark. The same pencil can be used to shade the back and hind legs of the frog. The wood grain should be built.
Heard me make shadows on the back and hind legs of the frog using pencils B & 4H. You can try your best to recreate the bumpy texture of the frog’s side.
Now, it’s time for you to finish. Start by deciding where you want it to be. The outline of the leg and shadow of the frog was first drawn. Next, I used the 4H pencil for more wood pieces. To add more variation, you can also use a pencil B on the wood. After I had finished the wood, I applied a final layer to the legs of the frog. This is mostly due to the 4H pencils. The darker areas are only used with the B pencil. Next, I sketched the frog using pencil B. The background was completed with pencils 8B and B. The final touches were made to the body with mostly the B pencil. You can add a bit of tissue paper to your shadow if it is too uneven or too rough. Light mixing. After you’ve added all the details, it’s time to call the drawing finished! This one is fun! Let me know what you think!
