In this tutorial you will be learning how to draw a character who came into homes around the world and touched lives on his way. Today you will be learning how to draw Barney. Now Barney is a dinosaur from children's imagination. He starts off as a regular purple colored stuffed animal. When children need help or are just plain board, the purple sensation becomes a life size dinosaur. Barney teaches kids about all kinds of stuff like sharing, team work, and other important life knowledge. Barney was first created back in 1987 by a woman named Sheryl Leach out of Dallas Texas. Her whole purpose for Barney was to create a character that her preschool aged son would enjoy watching while learning at the same time. The opening song to the show was very appealing as well it goes; Barney is a dinosaur from our imagination and when he's tall he's what we call a dinosaur sensation. Barney's friends are big and small they come from lots of places, after school they meet to play and sing with happy faces. Barney shows us lots of things like how to play pretend, ABC's, and 123's and how to be a friend. Barney comes to play with us whenever we may need him Barney can be your friend too If you just make-believe him. I love that song even to this day. Well this tutorial will show you how to draw Barney step by step. The detailed instructions will put you on the right path to help you draw this purple dinosaur from scratch. I will leave this tutorial with a song that Barney and his friend sing when it is time to say good-bye; I love you You love me we're a happy family with a great big hug and a kiss from me to you. won't you say you love me too. See ya.
