Description: I think it is time to learn "how to draw a dinosaur" in a real easy and cool fashion. I drew this dinosaur yesterday while I was live and everyone liked how it came out. I think this is one of my favorite dinosaurs that I drew and I really am loving the line art. I have to thank Adobe Illustrator for those professional looking lines huh? Wow, wicked nice. Anyways, the dinosaur that I used for a reference is the Tyrannosaurus Rex. This carnivore was one of the deadliest of its kind back in the Jurassic period. When I was like eleven years old, I watched "Jurassic Park" for the first time, and that is when I really feel in love with the T-Rex as well as the Velociraptor. Drawing dinosaurs is a fun way to let your imagination go wild because you can come up with a bunch of ideas to mix the reptile with another creature like I do. My concept art comes from a variety of mixed beings, animals, reptiles, dragons and so forth. I think that if you use your imagination, you too can come up with an amazing concept character just by learning “how to draw a dinosaur step by step”. I will be back momentarily with two more lessons that I think you will enjoy. For now try out this submission on a very easy and basic dinosaur called the T-Rex. Peace peeps and happy drawing!
