How to Draw A Crocodile

Before learning how to draw a crocodile: some fun facts before starting sketching!

  • The lifespan of a crocodile is around 40 to 60 years.
  • A total of 23 different species of crocodile can be found on earth.
  • Alligators are a part of the crocodile's family.

Step 1

Before learning how to draw a cartoon crocodile, let's take a look of the anatomy of this big cruel animal. The crocodile has a powerful jaw (3), a long and thick tail (1) and a rigid skin made of scales (but also called scutes) (2). 

The crocodile also has four strong feet that allow him to walk, swim and catch a prey in a fraction of a second. 

Step 2

This animal is a little more tricky to describe when talking about his shape. The body is made of a long rectangle while the tale is made of several small rectangles. The neck and the head are also very thick. Like the rest of the body, the four feet are made with big rectangles to really represent the strength of this feared animal.

Step 3

In this example, I will try to help you draw a more friendly cartoon crocodile. First, sketch a circle for the head and a rectangle for the jaw. Then, draw another rectangle for the body and a circle for the stomach. 

Work the outline of your character and add the tail and part of the left hand to this outline. Add some details like the eyes, the mouth and the teeth. If you wish, you can add color to make your creation more enjoyable.

Step 4

Drawing this animal can be a great challenge. You can try to draw a more realistic crocodile if you wish (2). Or why not draw this reptile using mostly squares or rectangles (4)? Just don't give up if you find this exercise too difficult. Good luck!
