Hi! Japanese Illustrator, Koko here.
Today we’re going to draw a DINOSAUR!!!!!
I’ve got a drawing request from Lluís from Portugal. He wants me to draw a Dinosaur, clouds and the sun. 😊
Thanks Lluís, that sounds like a lot of fun!
On this tutorial page I am only going to draw a Dinosaur, but on a tutorial video, I’ve drawn the sun and clouds 🙂

How to Draw a Dinosaur Step by Step Tutorial
Step 1. Draw something like stairs, 2 steps.
Step 2. Let’s draw a big mouth! Start from drawing from left to right, a bit curve up – and down. Does it look like it’s smiling?
Step 3. Now a bit fun part. Let’s draw Dinosaur’s teeth! He’s got many shape teeth.
It’s like drawing zig-zag 🙂 Give him lots of teeth!! GWAR!
Step 4. Do the same for lower teeth.
Step 5. Then we’re adding his nose. Fill this in.
Step 6. Now, we’re drawing his eye. He is a strong Dinosaur so we’re giving him not so cute, but a bit strong looking eye!
Draw a straight line slightly going up, then draw down by curving the line.
Step 7. Fill in his eye.
Step 8. Now let’s draw back of his head. Straight line – down. Stop at the same level as Dinosaur’s chin line.
Step 9. We are going to draw his arm. Leave a small space from chin, there we start to draw an arm.
Step 10. Let’s give him 3 fingers 🙂
Step 11. – and drawing another line, almost the same width from the first line that you had drawn – so now it looks like an arm, right? 🙂
Step 12. Then we’re drawing a stomach line.
Step 13. Here comes his leg. Try not to draw a straight line for his legs because legs look more natural if the lines are curved.
Step 14. Like fingers, we draw 3 toes here. 🙂
Step 15. Here comes the line for back of his leg..!
Step 16. We’re almost finish with his body part! Let’s draw Dinosaur’s back! It’s the same as legs, try not to draw a straight line. Back looks more natural when the line is a bit curved 🙂
Step 17. Alright! Now the fun part starts 🙂 We’re drawing the tail. Let’s give him a big, strong, cool tail, shall we?
Step 18. Last step! We’re almost there! How about giving him fins!? A bit scary looking, but cool fins go all the way from the head to the tail. Let’s draw a long zigzag line.
DONE!!!!! Good Job!!!!!
