How to Draw Brachiosaurus in 5 Steps


3. Add the Eyes and Shoulders

­Draw overlapping shapes for the legs on the close side. The front leg should have a circle for the shoulder, a long oval for the upper leg, and a rounded rectangle for the lower leg and foot. The rear leg should be made of a long oblong shape for the thigh and a rounded rectangle for the shin and foot. Add a small teardrop for the eye and another for the nostril. Be sure to include a line for a ridge above the eye (it looks like an eyebrow, but it's not) and a line for the mouth. Draw toenails on each foot.

We'll make our dinosaur look more realistic by adding muscle detail on the next page.
