click the image to enlargeOutline the trunk of the frog by light pencil line(s). Draw as many lines as necessary, you will erase the junk later. Tilt the pencil and draw by the side of the graphite, you will make much better and exact lines.
click the image to enlargeAdd the legs and outline the eyes. Notice how I sketched the legs first by ovals consisting of many lines piled up on each other. It is OK at this stage.
click the image to enlargeYou can point out the eyes. Highlight the light reflection on the eyes, but not too sharply yet. Draw the lines along the frog’s back.
click the image to enlargeHighlight a bit more the trunk (frog’s back) lines, so that you will not lose while shading to darker color tone during next steps.

While doing this work, always keep observing the original drawing – object, so that you will capture the most accurate curves of the body and the legs. They will just appear in correct proportions.
click the image to enlargePut some shade on the frog’s back. Again, observe the original drawing – object and choose the right tone. Sharpen up the eye contours a bit.
click the image to enlargeHighlight the dark pigmentation spots on the legs and the trunk of the frog. Mark out the nostrils and the tympanum - the round circle diagonally under the eyes. That is the frog’s ear. Yes, frogs have ears so they can hear each other as we do. Size might differ according to the species; keep that in mind when you draw a frog.
click the image to enlargePut darker tone on the body of the frog so that it looks more realistic. Darken the pigmentation spots on the body proportionately to the color tone of the body.
