That was a fun lesson on Zero wasn't? I want to now show you "how to draw a toad step by step”. The toad is an animal that is relative to the frog. What is the difference between the frog and a toad? Well for one thing toads have stubby bodies and they also have short hind legs. The reason why a toad has small hind legs is because they walk more then they hop. Another difference between the two species is the texture of their skin. Toads have a more watery to dry feel, appose to the smooth and slimy feel of a regular frog. The reason why toads have a watery dry texture to their hides is because they live in a much more dryer climate than frogs do. Toads also have hearty looking bodies as well, and frogs are more lean and bouncy looking. There is over three hundred species of toad in the “Bufonidae” family of animal. The word “toad” is used to refer to these amphibians as being “true toads”. Toads can be found all over the world except for a few places like; Australasia, the polar regions, Madagascar, and Polynesia. Another cool different trait that frogs and toads don't have in common is the way they lay eggs. Frogs will lay eggs in clusters and toads lay their eggs in chain like strand. I mean if you really think about it, toads are wicked cool amphibians to learn about because they are another specie of animal that is closely related to the dinosaur. I think you will find that learning "how to draw a toad” is fun, easy, and cool. Well that does it for me, for today at least. I will be back tomorrow with more drawing fun. In the mean time, join me and my other Dragoart friends and watch me draw live for you all. Peace out gang and happy drawing!
