Start by drawing two overlapping ovals, one smaller than the other. These shapes will form the crocodile’s head and body.
Connect the ovals at the bottom using a curved line, while also outlining the alligator’s neck. Use a series of short curves to detail the top of the alligator’s head in a smaller oval. Notice the larger curves that form the rim of the alligator’s eyes.
Use small, overlapping curves to form the top of the alligator’s snout and a wavy line to form its bottom. Then use a long, curved line to outline the bottom half of the alligator’s jaw.
Extend two long and curved lines from the larger oval to form the alligator tail. Note that the lines intersect at a sharp point.
Extend another pair of curved lines from the top and one side of the tail, so that the lines meet at a sharp point. This forms a bend in the tail and gives it a three-dimensional shape.
Draw legs. Use curved lines to outline shoulders and hips, as well as bent knees. Enclose the foot using “U” shaped lines to form the toes. At the tip of each toe, draw and shade a small triangle, representing the claws.
Erase the guide lines left by the original oval.
Detail of the crocodile’s face. Use a long, curved line to enclose the opening of the mouth. In the mouth, wrap an irregular shape to form the tongue. Draw a line down the center of the tongue and outline four triangular teeth. Use curved lines to detail the nostrils, the corners of the mouth, and the top of the muzzle. Glue a round shape for each eye. Draw a circle to form the pupil and a smaller circle inside it. Shade between two circles.
Body structure of crocodile. Veins with curves, and adorn the back and tail with shaded triangular spikes.
Color your crocodile. Most ‘gators’ are green, brown, or gray in color. The baby alligator has black and yellow stripes.
