There are many more dinosaur (and dragon!) drawing tutorials made just for young artists in my Draw Dinos & Dragons ebook.

All were created with lots of hands on classroom testing, and designed to take beginner artists from the first step to the last with clear and simple diagrams.

Each project starts with the simplest body shape possible, followed with the details that make dinos and dragons so much fun to draw. Just click on the book to learn more.
