1. Begin the cartoon Allosaurus outline by drawing the dinosaur’s face.

First, double a curved line back upon itself to form the central crest. Nearly enclose the rest of the face around it, leaving an opening at the back of the head.

Draw a teardrop-shaped eye with a round pupil shaded within it. Use a short curved line to draw the brow above the eye.

Learn More About The Allosaurus Drawing

Scientists have discovered so many cool dinosaurs. Would you like to meet one of them? Check out this easy, step-by-step Allosaurus drawing.

If you think this Allosaurus looks a lot like a T. Rex, you're right. Both dinosaurs belong to the same family, called theropods.

They have sharp teeth, small arms, and walk on two legs. You can see these shared traits in this Tyrannosaurus Rex drawing.

Scroll down for a downloadable PDF of this tutorial.

The main difference was their size. T. Rex was taller, longer, and heavier than Allosaurus. Allosaurus fossils are also much older than T. Rex fossils.

Some scientists think that dinosaur fossils may have inspired myths about dragons. Could this dragon skull drawing be linked to your Allosaurus?
