This post is an instruction on how to draw a dinosaur, specifically a diplodocus. It will be a drawing of a fairy-tale prehistoric reptile that walked the earth at the end of the Jurassic period. To do this drawing exercise, have a blank sheet of paper, a pencil, crayons, and an eraser ready. First, draw a fine line so that you can erase it with an eraser if you make a mistake. Finally, you can color your dinosaur with crayons to the color of your choice. And if you liked drawing enough that you would like to do something else, then I invite you to my other posts. Maybe you will try to learn to draw other dinosaurs as well? You can learn tyrannosaurus from the entry How to draw a tyrannosaur. You can also try to learn how to draw a dragon in How to draw a dragon or a simple turtle in How to draw a turtle.

It’s time to act and learn how to draw a dinosaur. We begin.
- Drawing a dinosaur – step one
Draw a fairly large circle in the center of the sheet. And at the top left, make a small circle.
- Dinosaur neck and tail
Now connect the smaller circle with the bigger one. On the right side of the larger circle, make a triangular tail.
- How to draw a Dinosaur Face
Draw the face of the dinosaur in the smaller circle. At the bottom, draw 4 vertical lines. These will be the diplodocus legs.
- Dinosaur drawing
In this step, we finish drawing the diplodocus legs. Draw round claws on each of its paws. Also mark a line across the long neck all the way to the belly. Erase unnecessary lines.
- Drawing of a dinosaur to color
This is how you learned how to draw a dinosaur. Now you can color your drawing.
- Color your drawing
The last step is coloring the drawing. I made my diplodocus green with brown spots, but you can color it any color you want. You are only limited by your imagination. Good luck and have a nice coloring.
