Here’s how to draw a Parasaur dinosaur, with his famous horn-shaped head. He’s got a profile like no other.
This dinosaur has an unusual look, with his strange head and tip-toe walk. The shapes may look a little intimidating at first, but if you see how my tutorial starts with a simple oval body, and then attaches the arms and legs to it, the process becomes much simpler.
The Parasaur is most known for the crest on the back of its head. It has been argued from scientists that the crest was used for multiple purposes. It could have been used to visually recognize the gender of the parasaur and used for acoustic resonance, which means it helped the dinosaur call out to his or her friends.
