How To Sketch A Cartoon Crocodile
Draw A Crocodile Cartoon Drawing
How to draw a cartoon croc is another in a series that I had an idea about creating which is all about drawing cartoon animals and other creatures. So far we have done
Below we will break the steps into three sections. The first section is the beginning sketches, finding the shape and structure of the Crocodile. The second one is about fleshing out the whole body shape including the head and the smaller details. The third one is about the inking process which helps to cement your cartoon drawing.
Now let's look at the initial steps we need to take to draw something to develop and simple shapes is always a good idea so you can start your design in little baby steps if you aren't confident and feel daunted about the end result in drawing.
Draw the body....
Pencilling In The Crocodile Form
Sketch In The Details Too
Defining the form of the Crocodile is the next logical step of the drawing process as we want to make more sense of the beginning shapes we drew earlier. Here we sketch in the legs and claw feet and some of the tiny details like the skin scales which are like random squares which help bring the Cartoon Croc drawing together.
The idea is to work on drawing an exaggerated cartoon version of the real thing and the floating eye brows and eyes help to achieve that idea.
Once pencil lines have been darkened and your croc looks ok you are ready to start inking your Crocodile drawing.
On With The Crocodile Drawing
Ink The Crocodile Pencil Drawing
When it comes to the inking stage you need a good ink pen. I always seem to use a black gel ink pen that is adequate for the inking process and as always when inking you don't have to simply use an ink pen as you could use paint brushes the more experienced you get by using Indian ink which is a deep black preferred by many artists for it's dark blanket coverage on the paper with usually one brush stroke.
I like to ink quick and with a cartoon Crocodile drawing you don't have to carry on all of the skin scales just suggest them under the belly and on the body, in fact I already knew that I added way too much detail here to be a Cartoon Crocodile, but hey I think that's my illustrator side that just can't seem to leave drawings alone.
