How to Draw a Simple Dinosaur

posted in: Animals, Drawing Tutorials | 2

It’s really easy to learn how to draw a simple dinosaur. I created this nine-step dinosaur drawing tutorial for you.

This tutorial on how to draw a simple dinosaur is a continuation of my previous tutorial on a dinosaur.

Translated from the Greek “dinosaur” means a creepy lizard. But these semi-fabulous giant creatures no longer scare us, because they have become extinct long ago. This is perhaps the only fact about them that all scientists agree with.

But what color the dinosaurs were, scientists do not know exactly. This is because the dinosaur skin is extremely rare to find.

It is believed that their color blended with the colors of the environment – so it would be easier for dinosaurs to hide from enemies.

It is customary to portray the dinosaurs in gray or green. Today in the dinosaur drawing lesson we chose green. So, let’s get down to the lesson!
