How to Draw a Frilled Neck Lizard


Please PAUSE the video after each step to draw at your own pace.



For the few steps, don't press down too hard with your pencil. Use light, smooth strokes to begin.

Step 1: Draw a small circle on the right side as a guide for the frilled-neck lizard's head. The circle doesn't have to be perfect. It's just a guide. Leave enough room on the left side for the rest of the lizard's body.

Step 2: Inside the circle, draw a line as a guide to help you place the facial features later. The line should split the circle in half and have a slight diagonal orientation. The size of this circle will determine the size of the fanned frill, so you can make yours bigger or smaller if you'd like.

Step 3: Inside the top half of the circle, draw two diagonal lines as a guide for the top part of the frilled-neck lizard's jaw. The resulting shape should be similar to a triangle.

Step 4: Draw a similar shape on the bottom half as a guide for the lower jaw using two more diagonal lines to create the frilled-neck lizard's open mouth.

Step 5: Draw a bigger circle that encompasses the head as a guide for the fanned frill. This circle should be a little over four times the size of the first one, and the top right edges of both circles should meet.
