Would you like to draw a roaring Tyrannosaurus Rex? You have come to the right place where you will learn how to draw a T-Rex step by step and very easily.
In this drawing tutorial, you will be able to learn how to draw a T-Rex in a simple style. Please note that the drawing is very simple and even beginners will be able to draw this dinosaur. The example shows a dinosaur in an aggressive roaring stance ready to attack. Our dinosaur does not have the green coloration that is usually depicted, so we decided to create a sandy dinosaur coloration with bright details on the back.
Tyrannosaurus Rex is one of the most famous and strongest dinosaurs that lived on our planet about 68 million years ago during the late Cretaceous period. His name comes from the Greek words “tyrannos” (tyrant) and “sauros” (lizard). This is not surprising, because this beast was one of the most powerful.
Tyrannosaurus Rex grew up to 5–6 meters in height and could reach a length of more than 12 meters, while weighing more than 7 tons. It had an interesting skull shape and a jaw with large teeth that were up to 30 cm long. These teeth were sawtooth and could bite through very strong materials.
To create a picture of Tyrannosaurus Rex, start with a general body shape—a large and round body with powerful legs and an elongated tail. Then add the details: huge teeth, eyes with an upper ridge, powerful legs, as well as his short arms with powerful claws. Don’t forget to add his characteristic features: he should look powerful, scary, and ready to hunt. Let’s get started!
Time needed: 25 minutes
- Draw the head.
Let’s start by drawing the shape of the head and the open growling mouth of your T-Rex.
- Outline the body.
Now you need to continue the lines you started while drawing the head to form the body and the T. Rex’s elongated, pointed tail.
- Add parts of the face.
Detail the face by drawing the eye, arc above the eye, and the nostril.
- Draw the teeth.
Draw formidable dinosaur teeth as shown in the example.
- Add the tongue.
Detail the growling dinosaur’s mouth by adding the tongue.
- Texturize the skin.
Texture the skin on the back of the Tyrannosaurus by adding wavy lines and spots as shown.
- Add the limbs.
Draw two powerful T. rex legs, then draw the first tiny hand with sharped claws.
- Add the second arm and claws.
Detail the legs of your Tyrannosaurus by adding sharp claws, then draw the dinosaur’s second tiny arm.
- Texture the skin of the body.
Following the example from the step, detail your T-Rex by adding the line that separates the lizard’s skin into two different colored parts, then add the belly lines as in the example.
