Hello again folks and welcome back to another tutorial on DragoArt.com. For today’s last tutorial I am going to show you how to draw Kermit the Frog. Now I know that almost all of you are familiar with this character. He was created by the very talented puppeteer Jim Henson who is responsible for the very show that Kermit was on, The Muppet Show. Kermit the Frog was in fact Jim Henson’s most valuable and most recognized creation. Not only was Kermit the main character of The Muppet Show, he was also your host. If you remember he had a pal who I think was his best friend named Fozzie Bear and a female that was always going after Kermit named Miss Piggy. Miss Piggy was definitely Kermit’s number one fan. I remember watching the show on a rerun and her main goal was to get Kermit in her piggy clutches. Eventually Kermit gave in and the two did fall in love as shown on several movies that came out staring the cast of the Muppets. I can remember watching Sesame Street as a kid and I use to wait for the segment when Kermit would appear as a news reporter for the Sesame Street News Flash. He was so funny when he would interview characters that were from nursery rhymes and sometimes he would interview police on the scene of a missing cookie. As a matter of fact that was Kermit's most famous role on Sesame Street. His friends from The Muppet Show was Gonzo, Sweetums, Sam the Eagle, The Swedish Chef, Dr. Teeth, Floyd, Animal, Capt. Link Heartthrob, Dr. Strangepork, Wayne and Wanda, Rowlf, Dr. Bunsen Honeydew, Scooter, Beauregard, Pops, Lew Zealand, Janice, Rizzo the Rat, and the two old men that use to sit in the balcony Statler and Waldorf. They use to say some fowl stuff about the show and the actors. They too were sometimes considered funny Muppets. It wasn’t just Jim Henson pulling the strings up there above the curtain, another gentleman by the name of Frank Oz use to puppeteer as well. Kermit the Frog was created and debuted in 1955 and he is still considered an oldie but goodie. I will show you how to draw Kermit the Frog step by step. The instructions make drawing this Muppet character simple to accomplish. I will be back tomorrow with more tutorials for your drawing enjoyment. Until then, keep your feet on the ground and a pencil in your hand.
