Step 1

Mark off the width and height of the Spinosaurus. Draw two ovals that will help to define the places for its head and body. Draw a line, which will act as the center of its head.

Step 2

Draw shapes for the body and neck of the Spinosaurus. Add a guideline for its tail.

Step 3

Add guidelines for the dinosaur’s legs and mouth.

Step 4

Draw shapes for the legs, lower jaw and spines.

Step 5

Draw the eye, toes and tail of the creature. Add more lines to its neck.

Step 6

Add claws and nostrils. Work on the figure, paying special attention to detail.

Step 7

Detail the spines, body and legs (by adding joints). Add the tongue and pattern of the Spinosaurus’s skin.

Step 8

Contour the Spinosaurus, trying to vary the thickness and darkness of the line. Add more detail and add the ground. Erase all guidelines.
