Hey everyone, Dawn here with another drawing tutorial, and today, we'll be “drawing a Pteranodon”. You'd be familiar with these bird like dinosaurs from the movie “Jurassic Park 3”, which features several attacks when the rescue crew tries to escape. I thought the scene was OK, and I'm not a fan of these strange looking creatures. In my rendition of a Pteranodon, I gave the dinosaur an attack-like pose as if it were preying on its next meal. “Drawing Pteranodons” can be a bit difficult because of their heads being larger than the overall size of their bodies. What makes their appearance look strange is the large crest that stems from the back of the skull. I believe this is part of the Pteranodon's skull structure, which is pretty neat. Look at different references on Pteranodons so you can create your own original pose. For now, stick to the tutorial until you can get the hang of drawing them. Coloring these creatures requires a few references as well since they can be interpeted numerous ways. Mine used firey hues to give this beast justice. I hope you'll enjoy this tutorial, so don't forget to leave feedback on how you did! Thanks so much for viewing and have fun learning "how to draw a Pteranodon"!
