Welcome to our fun step by step drawing tutorial.
Today we are going to draw pterodactyl.
Pterodactyl is the common term for pterosaurs. Though pterosaurs were mistaken for a type of dinosaurs, but actually they are flying reptiles.
This common mistake probably comes from the fact that pterosaurs lived among dinosaurs and became extinct around the same time.
Now, let's grab our pencils or markers and start drawing our pterodactyl.
Step 1: The head
Draw an oval shape that looks like a human eye for the head, but leave a gap in the lower line so we can make the neck later.
Step 2: Neck, back and belly
Draw a narrow neck coming down from the gap that we left in the head.
To draw the back, make a wavy line going up then down then up again a little higher than before so we can make the tail later.
Then make a shorter curved line to make the belly.
Step 3: The hidden wing
Draw the wing that is further away from our view, so it will be hidden behind the head and the body of the pterodactyl by drawing to curved lines coming out from both sides of the back of the head, then connect them by two half circles.
Step 4: The other wing
Draw the other wing by drawing a triangle coming down from the belly, but the third side of it is two half circles.
Step 5: The belly and tail
Complete the curved line of the belly going up to make the tail and adding a small triangle at the tip of the tail.
Step 6: Decorate
Add an eye and a small circle under the eye for a blush. Then decorate the top of the head and the back with some irregular spots, and the wings with a few stripes.
Congratulations, now you can draw a pterodactyl.
Now, all you have to do is grab your colors and have some fun coloring this piece of art, I am sure it will look amazing no matter what type of colors you choose.
