Sorry folks, I honestly don't know why I made this lesson on "how to draw a cartoon dinosaur". I know I have a few already so there was really no point in drawing dinosaurs in cartoon form. I don't get requests for these extincted reptiles/animals, but my little sister did ask if I had any new dinosaur tuts so since I didn't I do now. Drawing dinosaurs can be a daunting task but hopefully this lesson helps. Anyways that's about all. I don't know how many of you will find this lesson likable or useful, I'm sure there will be a handful so enjoy.
