Step 1

Great! Let's sketch the head using a long oval shape. Remember to draw two small circles on top to illustrate the eyes. The bottom of the head can be drawn like a heart. You can also add the body using a long rectangle. Make sure the bottom is narrower.

Step 2

The feet and legs are created from oval shapes (well, just the top part). Although perspective would suggest that front legs must be bigger since back legs are actually quite larger, it's a good idea to draw large back legs and smaller front legs.

Next, draw a long and large triangle (made from curved lines) to represent the tail. On the stomach of the cartoon crocodile, you can add a long line like shown on the illustration below.
