Please PAUSE the "How to Draw a Triceratops" video after each step to draw at your own pace.
For the first few steps, don't press down too hard with your pencil. Use light, smooth strokes to begin.
Step 1: Draw two circles as guides for the triceratops' body. The circles don't have to be perfect. They're just guides. The circle on the left should be slightly bigger. The two circles should be right next to each other.
Step 1: Draw a circle that's about half the size of the first circle on the right side as a guide for the triceratops' head.
Step 3: Draw two intersecting lines inside the triceratops' head to help you place the facial features later on.
Step 4: Draw a U- shaped arc on the lower right side of the head as a guide for the triceratops' muzzle.
Step 5: Draw guides on the head for the frill and horns. First draw a wide arc that connects the original circle to the triceratops' head as a guide for the frill. Then draw two diagonal lines as guides for the triceratops' horns. The line on the head should be longer than the one on the muzzle.
