The following is a video tutorial where the steps are WRITTEN out within the video:
For the first few steps, don't press down too hard with your pencil. Use light, smooth strokes to begin so that it's easy to erase if you make a mistake.
Step 1: Draw a long, slanted oval as a guide for the lizard's body. It doesn't need to be perfect. It's just a guide.
Step 2: Draw a smaller, slanted oval above and to the right of the first as a guide for the lizard's head.
Step 3: Inside the head, draw two intersecting lines. These are guides that will help in placing the lizard's facial features later on.
Step 4: Draw two curved lines that connect the lizard's head to the body and form the neck.
Step 5: Draw three short, angled lines underneath the lizard's body as guides for the legs and feet.
