Please PAUSE the "How to Draw a Chameleon" video after each step to draw at your own pace.
For the first few steps, don't press down too hard with your pencil. Use light, smooth strokes to begin.
Step 1: Draw a big circle as a guide for the chameleon's body. The circle doesn't have to be perfect. It's just a guide. Leave enough room on the sides for the head and tail.
Step 2: Draw a smaller circle on the right side as a guide for the chameleon's head. The circle should be about one-fourth the size of the first one and should be placed a bit lower.
Step 3: Inside the circle, draw two intersecting lines. These lines will help you when learning how to draw the chameleon's facial features later on.
Step 4: Draw an arc on the right side of the chameleon's head as a guide for the mouth.
Step 5: Draw another slightly bigger arc on top of the head as a guide for the bony crest.
