Hi, my name is Jessica and I'm an artist, and today we're going to draw an alligator picture. So our alligator, we're going to do this kind of line like this and that's going to be the alligator from the tail to the head. So we're going to start with the head area. He's got this kind of, they've got these big eyes on top of their head and then they have a long snout that comes out and kind of this big jaw and you can take a black marker and go in and put the mouth here to show a little bit of color there and their eyes are just kind of on the sides like that and then they have sort of a snout over here. Next the alligator has this kind of round sort of kind of, it almost looks like a chubby belly like a little bit of a fat belly there. They got this kind of round body and they have these little cute stubby arms that come out just like this that have little almost finger looking things on them. They've got one on each side just like that. And then when we get to the back they have this other little kind of leg that comes out just like that and they've got the same kind of little flippers. You can't really see this one too much so we'll just put it over there like that and they have this very big tail. And that's like a really big part of the alligator body is this long tail that comes around and connects back up and it gets thinner as it gets to the end of the tail and then the alligator also has these very specific alligator designs which are these kind of jagged points almost. They look like points on the back that go like this and they go all the way down the alligator, all the way down, down, down, down, down, all the way to the tip of the tail. These little jaggedy lines and you can get as detailed as you want to with these. If you want to put them really close together you can, if you want to make them go all the way across the tail you can. That's the wonderful thing about drawing is that we have the freedom to get creative. And they don't have too many on their arms but mostly just on their body and a few on their nose. And that is how you draw an alligator picture.
