Drawing dinosaurs is tricky - but here are some great tips for dinosaur detail...
You will need:
|Start by drawing a rounded body - a sort of rugby ball shape.|
Then add a curved neck and tail.
They both start off chunky near the body, then get thinner towards the tip.
|If you run out of space for the tail, remember it could turn back on itself, like this.|
|The legs are sort of fat sausages that curve outwards - a bit like boomerangs!|
|The head, in comparison to the neck, is quite tiny - with a long snout.|
|Adjust all your shapes until you're happy with the basic dinosaur shape you're left with.|
Skin colour and texture of dinosaurs still baffle most experts.
But we think they had dark green wrinkly skin, so Neil used a dark green crayon here. Start by going round the outline to break the shape up . Make it lumpy and bumpy, especially around the legs.
|Draw a long groove down the dinosaur's back and up its neck, and one down the stomach and tail.|
|Two wrinkly grooves down each leg make them look old but sturdy.|
|Build up lots of wrinkles and muscles all over the dinosaur.|
|When it comes to the legs, do curved wrinkles around the top.|
Don't forget the face!
Experts reckon dinosaurs had long mouths, big nostrils and slitty eyes!
|How about some lighter green bits?|
|And a hint of yellow, all over for a reptilian feel.|
|Add some white highlights around the legs...|
|...and some darker shading to make your dinosaur look 3D.|
No-one really knows how accurate this is - but the wrinkles look great don't they?
It's easy - try it yourself!
