Written step-by-step video tutorial:
For the first few steps, don't press down too hard with your pencil. Use light, smooth strokes to begin.
Step 1: Draw a small circle as a guide for the pachycephalosaurus dinosaur's body. First make four small marks to indicate its height and width. Then connect the marks using curved lines. Sketch lightly at first so that it's easy to erase if you make a mistake. If you're struggling drawing the circle, trace the outer rim of a coin, a lid or any other object with a circular edge.
Step 2: Draw another circle on the right the same way. This will be a guide for the back of the pachycephalosaurus's body. This circle should be slightly bigger than the first one, and their edges should touch. Don't draw the circles higher or lower. Draw them at the same level.
Step 3: Draw yet another circle on the left side as a guide for the pachycephalosaurus's head. This circle should be smaller than the others. There should also be a small space between it and the first circle.
Step 4: Draw two intersecting lines inside the head. These construction lines will help you place the dinosaur's facial features later.
Step 5: Draw two small arcs under the head as guides for the pachycephalosaurus's muzzle. They should be similar to the letter U. The inner line of the arcs should be flat. The arc on the right should be smaller.
