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 mushroom frog – Step by step for beginners

I always start with a rough guide so that drawing becomes easier.

In this case, we are going to start a simple circle first. If you are drawing this with traditional tools, make sure the circle is erasable later.

Next, I will draw the frog’s body. We want to draw a simple “U” shape that’s bulgy at the bottom and also squished and flat at the center like this:

Chibi animals are usually round and short so this is how we achieve the chibi look with our small frog.

Next, we are going to draw the head of the frog and to do this we are going to draw 2 bulges for the eyes along with the top of its head.

Just draw 2 small U shapes at the top of its head like this:

Next, we are going to draw the frog’s legs. So I’m going to draw 2 small legs at the bottom of the frog on either side like this:

Now, we are going to draw the frog’s front legs, so just draw 2 small “W” shapes in the front of the frog’s body like this:

We’re almost there.

To complete our frog drawing, we need to draw its face. So, let’s draw 2 small eyes and a mouth with a U shape like this:

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 frog.

Now, we need to draw the mushroom over its head. We’ll draw a small oval shape like this – pretend you’re drawing a halo.

Next, we’ll draw the mushroom’s head.

We’re done!

Let’s color the mushroom frog now.

I’m going to start by coloring the frog green.

I’m also going to add some warts to the frog’s skin with a darker shade of green. Remember to vary the sizes of warts so that the frog looks more realistic. I’ll also add 2 blush spots to make the mushroom frog look super cute.

Next, we are going to color the mushroom. I’ll color cap of the mushroom red and the underneath a cream color.

Just add some white spots to the mushroom and some stripes to the underneath part of the mushroom to give it more texture. And you’re done!
