Learn how to draw a t-rex with personality in 15 simple steps. The first 8 steps are guidelines, while the rest are for detailing. If you want to draw a t-rex on your computer, but don’t have any software, don’t worry! I use these free softwares to draw and color my tutorials and they’re fairly straightforward:
Draw a small circle for the t-rex’s head and a large oval shape for the body.
Add the upper and lower parts of the mouth and draw a small circle for the jaw.
Draw a thick neck by connecting the body and head together using 2 curves. Then, make a long tail connected to the end of the t-rex’s body.
For the leg and arm, we’re going to draw 2 circles on the body – On the left, draw a large circle that takes up almost half of the body. On the right, draw a small circle, smaller than the circle you drew for the jaw in step 2.
Draw a pointy cone shape around the large circle and point the tip towards the left. This is going to be a guideline for the thigh.
Then draw a small cone around the tiny circle and point the tip of that cone to the right. This is going to be the t-rex’s arm.
Draw a downward facing curve coming from the arm. Add a second one for the arm on the other side of the t-rex’s body.
Then draw a simple, long shape with 4 sides to make up the t-rex’s lower legs.
For the feet, draw 2 long triangles attached to each leg and then draw curves that are positioned to the far right.
For the eye, just draw a circle in the upper portion of the face. This circle should be significantly smaller than the circle you drew for the arm.
Now let’s add some details!
Around the circle you just drew, create thick eyelids. After that, draw an almond shape inside the eye and then give the dinosaur a nostril, ear and menacing brow!
Now we’re going to outline the head. Start from the base of the neck and follow the shape you drew for the brow. Give him a unique mouth shape and don’t forget to draw a partial curve around the jaw.
Give your dinosaur a nice thick tongue at the base and then taper it at the end. Add some large teeth on the top portion of the mouth and a row of smaller teeth on the bottom.
Outline your guidelines for the arms. Give your t-rex some biceps if you want! Remember not to draw around the whole circle.
To draw the legs, use your pre-drawn lines as a rough guideline to draw a set of muscular dinosaur legs. Bring out those calves and round off the knees and heels.
Finally, add the feet with large thick claws.
Trace your way around the body and then draw the tail, making sure the base is nearly as thick as the dinosaur’s behind.
Erase all your guidelines and color your t-rex in!
