STEP 1. Okay lets start this first easy step by drawing out the guidelines and shapes of the chameleon. Start with a circle for the head and then make the beginning shape of the round eye. You will then draw out the mouse like body shape and from that add the arm and leg lines as well as the tail that curls at the tip.   STEP 2. Here in step two you will start by sketching out the shape of the body and head as seen here. After that begin drawing out the skinny shape of the front arm and then the spin line.   STEP 3. Well, you have reached step three and what you will do here id draw out the bottom portion of the jaw or mouth. Once that is complete you will then draw out the toes on both the front and back foot as well as the shaping of the hind leg. Now that you have done that you can proceed onto drawing out the thickness of the chameleons tail and make sure that you have it curl inward at the tip. Add some definition to the back and then move onto the next step.   STEP 4. Well you have reached the final drawing step and what you will do next is draw out the circle shape of his eye and add a dot right in the upper right hand side. Next finish off the body and limb shapes and when doing so make sure you add a hint of wrinkling and a few creases. Finish off the thickness of the tail and then start erasing all the guidelines and shapes that you drew in step one.   STEP 5. Once you are complete your chameleon should look like the one you see here. All you have to do now is color him in and remember you can get a bit creative since chameleons come in many different colors and shades. That is it you have done it! You just learned how to draw a chameleon step by step.   Step 1. Step 2. Step 3. Step 4. Step 5.
