Learn More About The Saurolophus Drawing

Do you love dinosaurs? You can learn how to draw a Saurolophus with the help of this easy, step-by-step cartoon dinosaur drawing guide.

Unlike many dinosaur drawings, you won’t see any sharp teeth here. That is because Saurolophus was a herbivore - a plant-eater.

Scroll down for a downloadable PDF of this tutorial.

These gentle plant-eaters were often the prey of larger carnivorous drawings. You can make a dramatic scene when you learn how to draw a Tyrannosaurus rex.

Saurolophus is often confused with Parasaurolophus. Saurolophus was the smaller of the two. Its head crest was smaller, and it lived at an earlier time. You can learn how to draw Parasaurolophus here.
