Step 11: Draw four small pentagons across the back for the distinctive stegosaurus plates. Curve the corners of each pentagon so that they're not so pointy. The bottoms of the pentagons should overlap the top of the body. Make the pentagon in the middle big and the pentagons on the sides small. Near the tip of the tail, draw a couple of small, cone-like shapes for the spikes called the thagomizer.
Step 12: Draw a series of short angled lines to the left of the plates for the set of plates that are on the other side of the stegosaurus' body. Most of these plates will be hidden behind the first set of plates, so only draw the top parts. To the left of the spikes, draw two more short angled, lines to complete the spikes on the thagomizer.
Step 13: Go over the lines with a pen or marker to make your cartoon giraffe drawing permanent. Take your time and be careful when you ink to avoid any accidents. After the ink dries, get rid of every pencil mark with an eraser. After the ink dries, get rid of every pencil mark with an eraser.
Final Step: Color your chibi stegosaurus drawing any way you'd like, using color pencils markers or crayons! For this look, draw a stripes along the top part of the body using dark green. Color the rest of the body yellow-green. Use yellow for the underside of the body and spikes. Color the plates light brown or orange. Use light and dark brown for the eye.
