I am currently using an iPad Pro and an Apple Pencil to create my digital art.
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:
That’s going to be the frog’s head.
Next, let’s draw 2 small curves at the ends of the line like this:
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.
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.
And to complete the tail, draw 2 fins at the bottom.
To add more texture, you can add some scales to the little frog mermaid.
Next, we are going to color the frog mermaid.
Let’s start by coloring the frog green.
Now, we can add some warts to the frog.
We are going to add green warts to the frog to add some texture to the frog mermaid.
Next, color the mermaid tail. You can color your tail any color you want.
Lastly, I’m going to add some blush spots to the frog’s cheeks to make it look super cute.
