Description: Now this was an impressive dinosaur, the Brachiosaurus, one of the largest reptiles or animal to walk the earth. This particular dinosaur lived during the Jurassic Period and is recognized world wide. I first became a fan of this large lizard when the dinosaur cartoon came out “The Land Before Time”. Little foot was one of the main characters in this movie and he was in fact a Brachiosaurus. Though this animal has been considered the largest dinosaur known to man, over time man discovered a number of other big species such as the Titanosaurids and the Argentinosaurus, which exceeded the Brachiosaurus under sheer mass terms. This dinosaur lived between 140-150 million years ago. Brachiosaurus was an herbivore, meaning they only ate plants. They had long necks and tails and their body resembled a giraffe. They measured at 82 feet in length, and were able to raise its head to about 42 feet high. The weight of one of these massive dinosaurs ranged from as small as 16 tons to a whopping 86 tons. I had a lot of fun drawing this sketch; it brought back a lot of childhood memories. When I decided to create this tutorial on "how to draw a Brachiosaurus", I wanted it to be as simple as possible. Learning to draw this dinosaur has 8 steps and if you wanted you can color the image to look like a cartoon. Either way you want to do it is fine, after all you did take the time to draw it. I love this sketch.
