This docile and friendly cartoon character can be drawn through this drawing lesson on how to draw a crocodile! Indeed, you will have the opportunity to duplicate a fun animal made from simple elements.
Everything was designed with simplicity and cuteness in mind! Ready to draw this fun cartoon crocodile? Wondering what is the difference between this crocodile and the alligator created previously? Well, the head and jaw are larger, the back legs are bigger and the mouth is wider.
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.
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.
Time to work on the eyes. Each eye can be made from a large circle to illustrate the eyeball, another one to create the pupils and a small oval shape to create reflection. It's a simple recipe that is usually quite effective.
The nose is drawn from two large dots. You can also add a line to illustrate the mouth. Both teeth a sketched from two small triangles. Nice work! That's it for this cartoon lesson! :)
This is a black and white version of the final cartoon character. You can add colors and remove the outlines if your goal is to come up with a colored version similar to the one shown on top of this page.
Here are all steps grouped in one single illustration. If you prefer to work on something a little bit more elaborated, why not try this crocodile cartoon featuring a more complex character with great effects! Have fun!
