In this lesson, we will learn how to draw a alligator – the oldest and most dangerous animal on the planet. Drawing an alligator is actually quite easy – those huge predatory jaws with sharp teeth are a quick giveaway of what animal you’re drawing. However, it is better to follow certain steps so as to depict a crocodile more realistically rather than cartoonist. The crocodile is a wild animal that is very dangerous, and in order to convey its character in the drawing, we must first draw its long snout with open jaws, with legs spread wide apart and a long horny tail.
