But you can use any tool – a pen and paper or color pencils or Copic markers or Photoshop because the drawing method remains the same.

How to draw a mermaid frog – Step by step for beginners

We are going to be using very simple shapes for this drawing tutorial.

Let’s begin with a small curved line like this:

draw a small line

That’s going to be the frog’s head.

Next, let’s draw 2 small curves at the ends of the line like this:

draw 2 bulges

And we can now fill in the frog’s face.

Draw 2 eyes and a small mouth at the center of the eyes like this:

Now, draw 2 curves at the side – this is the frog’s body.

Then, draw a neat curve like this – we are going to draw the frog’s mermaid tail underneath this line so it will help us draw the tail.

We need to draw the frog’s arms.

So, draw 2 W shapes at the center of the frog to indicate the frog’s arms.

draw the feet of the frog

Easy, isn’t it?

We can also draw the belly of the small frog. It will give us a better opportunity to color the frog with more colors. So, I’m going to draw an inverted U shape on its stomach to draw the belly.

And we are done drawing the top part of the frog.

Now, we need to draw the mermaid tail.

I’m going to draw some scales like this underneath the line.

Next, draw 2 curves tapering together slowly. This will be our mermaid’s tail.
