How to draw a chameleon step by step

Let`s learn how to draw a chameleon.

You can talk for a long time about the life and character of chameleon, but now it’s not our problem. In short: it’s such a lizard that can change the color of its body (not just masking, but, apparently, just for the sake of art). It feeds on insects, which it catches with long, very long(two thirds the length of the chameleon!) sticky tongue. The tail is long and clingy. Chameleon tightens its tail around branches when moving, and while resting holds it spirally-rolled. He moves quietly sneaks up on its victims slowly moving on jointed legs. The toes also are adapted for gripping branches.

I watched the chameleon in the terrarium: moves like a robot. The chameleons eyes can move in any direction and not-synchronized: each looks to his side. Often the body of this lizard, and especially the head is decorated with ridges and outgrowths of the most bizarre that complementing his appearance, make the chameleon look very much as a kind of alien.

Enough biological descriptions,it is time to learn how to draw a chameleon.

The head is large and with some sharp excrescence on the neck (I wonder – for beauty or for protection?) Mouth like a slit, and round eye. Chameleon drawing tutorial

Spiral tail will complete the look of the chameleon. Our chameleon is on the twig.Note that we need to honestly draw a branch from one edge of the sheet to the other. You can not pick a support under his feet and draw as if it comes from nowhere to nowhere.
