Below you’ll find an easy step-by-step tutorial for how to draw a Diplodocus and a Diplodocus Coloring Page. He was once the world’s longest animal.
Learn how to draw a diplodocus, and still keep his head and tail on one sheet of paper, even if he once was the world’s longest animal. Don’t let the stubby legs fool you because this dinosaur was over 100 feet long.
That’s longer than the largest mammal alive today; the blue whale. The diplodocus sure didn’t have any issues finding its food in the tallest of trees. This gigantic creature walked the earth over 150 million years ago.
This tutorial takes a different point of view by having the diplodocus rather stacked with his head and tail wrapping around his body. The original drawing idea came from a site called “Hello Kids”, I just added the extra drawing steps to my tutorial.
