Step 1.

Make two shapes, one for the head, and the other for the body. Sketch in a single facial guideline.

Step 2.

Sketch out the side of the triceratops head which should include the horns, shape of the snout, and face.

Finish drawing the head by making the fan like bone design like so. When that is done draw the body, front and back legs, then the belly. Add the toes on each foot as well.

Step 4.

Draw in the other leg and foot like so, then draw the tail, add the large eye, then draw the pupil.

Step 5.

Lastly, sketch in all the scales scattered on the body, as well as the shapes of the bones on the ends of the head. Add some final detailing like so, then erase the mistakes.

Step 6.

Here is your triceratops for kids. Color it in, then you're done.
