So let’s start drawing Triceratops traditionally using mostly simple geometric shapes. Describe three ovals for the head, chest, and pelvis.
Now, use a long, smooth line to depict the neck, going into the spine and tail. Next, draw the front and rear legs with simple lines.
Now describe a mouth that somewhat resembles the beak of a bird. The upper jaw should be larger than the lower jaw.
Draw the bottom edge of the neck with a straight line. Further, go to the top of the head and draw the frill that we wrote in the beginning.
Draw two long, pointed horns on the top of the head and one shorter horn on the nose. Try to repeat the horn curl as in the example from the artists of Easydrawingart.com.
Draw a small round eye and a wrinkle below the horn. Next, draw the nostril under the nose horn. Use a few short lines to mark the lower jaw.
Now draw the front leg with four simple lines. Try to repeat their outline as closely as possible. Drawing one leg in front of the other will make the Triceratops look more dynamic.
Very simple stage of tutorial on how to draw Triceratops. At the bottom of the forelegs, the toes have short, rounded claws.
Now draw the bottom edge of the torso by connecting the ribcage and pelvis from below. In the same stage, draw the lower edge of the tail.
Now let’s perform the same actions as those performed in the seventh stage. Draw the rear pins using four simple lines, which should be larger than the front pins.
Now draw the toes with the toenails on the hind legs. Notice that from this vantage point we can only see three toes on each foot.
Carefully remove all construction lines that were created in the first two stages. To make the Triceratops drawing look clearer and more complete, darken the artwork by outlining it with a darker pencil.
We painted Triceratops’ skin green, eyes black and toenails dark green. Adding a drop shadow will give the Triceratops drawing a more realistic and lifelike look.
But that’s not all you can do with your Triceratops drawing. For example, you can draw a background with flora and fauna from the Cretaceous period.
