How many times have you went inside a pet store with your parents to get a collar for Fido or a new toy and came across one of the coolest looking reptiles in the store? I know when I sued to go to Petco or Dr. Doolittle's, I always found myself drawn to the reptile section. My mother had to scour the store to find me, and when she did I used to say "look at this lizard". I always made an attempt to try and con my parents to buy me a pet iguana, but instead they bought me two ball pythons. Anyways, in light of my past I wanted to create a lesson for all you kids or novice artists out there that have a love for reptiles. Here is "how to draw an iguana for kids", step by step. This is probably one of my favorite animals for kids tuts I have done thus far. I think it's because it's so vivid and simple as well as cute and easy to draw. Even though I had a blast making this lesson, some of you may still find it hard to recreate such an awesome beast. I wish you all the best, make sure to leave a comment and rating to let others know what you think and how you did. Adios people and enjoy!
