You may find it easier to follow the step-by-step drawings below the video. The new lines in each step are shown in red, so you'll know exactly what to draw next. You may want to open the video in a new tab and use both drawing methods. Take your time and draw at your own pace.
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 curved line similar to a half-circle for the cartoon T. rex's eye. Sketch lightly at first so that it's easy to erase if you make a mistake. When you get the shape right, darken the line and make it thick for eyelashes. The shape should be like a circle that doesn't connect at the bottom.
Step 2: Inside the eye, near the right side, lightly sketch a small circle for the iris. When you get the size and position of the iris right, darken the line. In the middle of the iris, draw a tiny circle and shade it in for the pupil. Draw a couple of highlights as tiny circles above and below the cartoon dinosaur's pupil. Don't shade these in.
Step 3: On the lower, left side of the eye, draw a sloping, curved line for the mouth. On the right end of the T. rex's mouth, draw a tiny, curved line for a smile line. From the left end of the mouth, draw a curved line upward for the front part of the muzzle. From the top of this line, draw a short line that slopes to the top, right for the rest of the muzzle.
Step 4: Continue the line for the muzzle and stretch it to the right for the top of the cartoon dinosaur's head. Pay attention to the distance from the eye to the top of the head. Curve the line downward for the rest of the head. Curve the bottom of this line to the left a bit. The shape of the T. rex's head should be somewhat blocky.
Step 5: Under the mouth, draw a short, curved line for the chin. Inside the dinosaur's muzzle, near the top, draw a tiny curved line for the nose. Below the tiny curved line, draw a tiny circle for the nostril. Above the T. rex's eye, draw a short, curved line for the thick brow.
