A Simple Long Neck Dinosaur Drawing

Dinosaur drawings can be an engaging way to teach kids about ancient dinosaurs while honing their drawing abilities. This simple long neck dinosaur drawing should be easily understood by even very young children, encouraging them to experiment with creating their own versions!

This dinosaur drawing serves as an effective introduction to proportions and perspective as well as how the various parts of a dinosaur fit together to make one. Starting out by using guide lines is always beneficial; using two of them helps students draw more accurately while providing a strong base from which to build their dinosaurs. In this tutorial we use one small guideline for the head shape and one larger guide for body shaping.

Once the guide shapes are drawn, sketch a long, straight line to represent the dinosaur’s neck and head. Make sure it is long enough and high enough so the dinosaur can be properly posed.

Sketch curved lines on either side to represent horns and crest on the dinosaur’s head, then sketch an eyeline above this to represent nostrils, followed by an outline for the mouth complete with nostrils enclosing it with nostrils, plus sharp teeth beneath this line to complete their facial features.

Start drawing the legs by drawing two half-circle arcs near the base of your dinosaur’s body – these don’t have to be identical in size but should be close together in terms of spacing. Connect these arcs using another curved line from its head. Finally, add small “U”-shaped lines as toes on each foot for additional detail.

Now that the basic outline has been drawn, add in more realistic details to give your dinosaur more lifelike characteristics. Use thick pen to outline its outline while thinner pens for adding details like points on its tail, claws, pointy nose and eyes – even use patterns or markings like zigzag patterns for unique markings on its body!

Once your dinosaur’s outline and head have been completed, draw in its back. Use a line that curves up before going back down for its body. Add additional details that make your dinosaur cartoon even more captivating like flying pterodactyls flying through the sky or lush vegetation which would have existed during its Jurassic period home environment.

Now it’s time to complete this adorable dinosaur. Start by adding two lines for its front legs; draw an upper leg curved line and let it overlap a second doubled back line; add short lines for knees and feet; finally draw two “U”-shaped lines for toenails on each foot, as well as using curved lines for its spine thorns if desired; you are now ready to color your dinosaur! You can choose any color or combination of colors you wish!
