Step 10: Use the original circle as a guide to draw the rest of the head. Draw the bottom part of the toad's head closer to the mouth. The line for the head on the right side stretches outside of the initial circle. Add a circle to the right of the eye for the tympanic membrane or ear.
Step 11: Use the angled line in the middle as a guide to draw the toad's front leg on this side of the body. Follow the basic path of the guide line and sketch the light lightly at first to get the shape right. When you get the structure of the leg right, darken the lines. Use the small lines as guides to draw the short, thin individual toes. Unlike frogs, toads usually have only slightly webbed toes, so don't make their toes fully webbed.
Step 12: Now use the line on the left side as a guide to draw the front leg on the other side of the toad's body. Start by using the small lines to draw the toes at the bottom. Make the toes thin and add the partial webbing in between them. Continue to follow the path of the guide line and draw the top part of the leg.
Step 13: Use the line on the right side as a guide to draw the hind leg. Sketch the shape of the leg lightly as you follow the basic path of the guide line. Darken the lines only when you have the structure of the leg right. The top folded part of the leg should be big and overlap a portion of the toad's foot. Draw the toes at the bottom. The leg on the other side will be blocked by the body and will not be visible.
Step 14: Use the remaining lines and shapes as guides to draw the rest of the toad's body. Follow the basic path of the guides but make the bottom part bigger and the top part bumpier.
