To doodle a dinosaur, begin by drawing a shape that looks very much like a question mark. This will become the head of your dinosaur. Notice the angle of the question mark in the example.

Step 2

To draw the body of your dinosaur, use curved lines. Kind of like drawing hills or s-shapes. Notice in the example the length of these lines compared to the head of our dinosaur.

To draw the legs of your dinosaur, use straight lines. The legs are kind of like blocks. They are very much like upright rectangles that have a cut-off at the top. Notice in the example the length and spacing of these lines.

Let’s finish off our dinosaur doodle by adding a u-shaped line for the belly that connects the two legs we drew in step 3. Then add a few more straight lines for the legs furthest away from our view of the dinosaur. And finally, use lines and oval shapes to draw the facial features of your dinosaur.

To finish things off, give your dinosaur some color. I’ve made my dinosaur doodle green, but you can play around with the colors if you wish. You can also add some texture or shading to the dinosaur’s body for added effect.
