How to Draw a Raptor for Kids

Artist: Dawn / July 19, 2011

Step 1.

Start with a large circle for the head, and then draw a smaller shape for the body and add a neck and face guidelines.

Step 2.

Using the guide you drew in step one draw out the shape of your raptor's head and then make the snout. Add a mouth line, and then move to step three.

Step 3.

Up next, you will need to draw out the oblong shaped eye like so, and then draw the eyeball. Sketch in the detailing line that shapes the snout and draw two nostrils. Next, draw the tooth that is overlapping the bottom jaw.

Step 4.

Draw out the neck, and then draw the shoulders and curled up arms and claws. Add some nails on each finger, and then move to step five.

Step 5.

You will now begin drawing out the legs thighs first, and then draw out the each foot. As you can see there is a few toes on each foot. Draw the bottom of the belly and you're done.

Step 6.

For the last step, all you have to do is draw out the tail, and then draw out the large retractable claw on each foot. Add some lines for each toe, and finger. Erase the lines and shapes that you drew in step one.

Step 7.

When you are all done you have a finished drawing that looks like the one you see here. You can chose a shade to color in your drawing and that's it.
