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 two circles as guides for the gecko's body. The circles don't have to be perfect. They're just guides. Geckos have long bodies, so place the circles far apart. The farther apart they are, the longer the body will be.
Step 2: Draw a slightly smaller circle on the upper left side as a guide for the gecko's head.
Step 3: Draw a U-shaped arc on the left side of the head as a guide for the gecko's muzzle. The combined shapes will look similar to an egg.
Step 4: Draw three short, angled lines under the gecko's body (two in front, and one in the back) as guides for the feet. Geckos have short legs, so don't draw the lines too long. Also pay attention to the placement of the lines in regards to the circles and the way the lines angle.
Step 5: Draw a series of curved lines that connect the major shapes to form the gecko's body. Draw a curved line on the right side of the right circle as a guide for the gecko's tail. The longer the line is, the longer the tail will be.
