How to Draw an Iguanodon

Artist: Dawn / June 13, 2013

Step 1.

Make the shape for the head, then make a line for the neck. Attach the neck line to the egg shaped body like so.

Step 2.

You will now sketch out the actual outlined shape of the dinosaur's head and muzzle area. Make the ring around the end of the snout, then proceed to step three.

Step 3.

For the next step you will draw in the eyes which is just a circle with a colored dot in the middle, then make the detailing to the bridge of the nose.

Step 4.

Once you sketch out the S shape of the neck, you can begin drawing the limbs like the front arms and hands. Draw the belly and thigh of the dinosaur, then sketch in some minor detailing.

Step 5.

To finish up the drawing all you have to do is draw in the rest of the legs, then draw the toes. Add detailing to the tail as well. Erase your mistakes then you are all done.

Step 6.

Here is what your drawing looks like when finished. Color in your dinosaur and you are ready to show off your work.

Description: Here is a dinosaur species that I haven't made a lesson on before. It's one that is popular but we never hear things about. Up next we will learn "how to draw an iguanodon", step by step. The first remains of this dinosaur were discovered in 1822 by Gideon Mantell. From the remains researchers believe that the iguanodon was at least thirty feet long, nine feet high and weighed around five tons. The remains or fossils of this dino have been found in places like England, Germany, Belgium, Africa and even in the United States. How long ago did the iguanodon live? Roughly about one hundred thirty million years ago, which would have put this dinosaur in the Cretaceous period. Drawing an iguanodon will be easy, and fun because I made sure to keep things simple. Have fun people and stick around.
