Draw Carnotaurus Dinosaur 6

Step 6: Draw a long curved line on the top right side of the body as a guide for the top part of the carnotaurus' tail. The tail needs to be long to act as a counterbalance to the front part of the body and head.

Step 7: Now draw another curved line under the first one for the bottom part of the carnotaurus' tail. The tail should come to a point at the tip, and it should be wide at the base. Add a short horizontal line inside the body, near the bottom, as a guide for the tiny forelimb.

That's it for the initial sketch! From this point on, press harder with your pencil to get a more defined sketch.


Draw Carnotaurus Dinosaur 8

Step 8: Lightly sketch a small circle inside the dinosaur's head, on the upper right side, for the eye. When you get the placement of the eye right, darken the circle. Add dark sections on the sides for the corners of the eye. Inside the eye, off to the side, draw a tiny circle to represent glare. In the middle, add a dot for the pupil. Draw a long curved line above the carnotaurus' eye to represent the thick, bony brow. Add a few smaller lines around the eye to represent the folds of skin.


Draw Carnotaurus Dinosaur 9

Step 9: On top of the head, draw the feature that sets the carnotaurus apart from other dinosaurs: the horns! The horns are basically shaped like triangles but are rounder at the bottom corners and the sides curve more. Place the first horn right on top of the edge of the initial half circle, above the top right side of the eye. Under the horn, draw a series of curved lines to indicate the skin where the bone is protruding from. Draw the second horn the same way but make it a bit smaller and point it in the other direction. Add a few curved lines under it as well for the fleshy base.
