Drawing of Spinosaurus
The Spinosaurus was one of the largest known carnivorous dinosaurs and lived during the Late Cretaceous period which was about 95 million years ago. This meat eater could grow to over 50 feet long and weigh up to 7.5 tons! Learn how to draw a Spinosaurus with the step by step tutorial below.
One of the more recognizable dinosaurs, the Spinosaurus is well known for its long head and famous “sail” that grew along its back. It is made from very tall neural spines that grew from the vertebrae. These spines could grow over 5 feet tall and were likely to have skin connecting then, like seen it our drawing.

Materials to Draw a Spinosaurus
- Eraser. Large ones you can hold in your hand do a much better job than just the pencil tips.
- Black Sharpie Marker. These fine point permanent marker pens make nice black outlines, have a good tip for coloring, and never bleed when they get wet. Use them with good ventilation and add extra paper underneath to protect your tables.
- Prang Crayons. These are a bit softer than other crayons so they sometimes look like oil pastels. They also have a some nice brown shades that Crayola does not have unless you buy their larger boxes.
- Crayola Crayons. The reliable brand that always works well. The 24 pack has some of my favorite golden orange and yellow colors that seem a bit richer and warmer than the ones Prang has.
