The Written step-by-step video tutorial:
For the first few steps, don't press down too hard with your pencil. Use light, smooth strokes to begin.
Step 1: Draw a circle near the right side of the paper as a guide for the front part of the feathered velociraptor's body. First make four marks to determine the circle's height and width. Then connect the marks using curved lines. If you're struggling to draw the circle, just trace the outer rim of a circular object like a coin or a lid. For a more detailed guide on the different ways to draw a circle check out this tutorial: Four simple ways to draw a circle.
Step 2: To the left, draw another circle using the four-marks method again as a guide for the back of the dinosaur's body. Make this circle slightly bigger than the first. The bottom edge should be lower than the first circle. Don't place these circles too far apart, otherwise velociraptor's body will be to long.
Step 3: On the top, right side, draw yet another circle as a guide for the velociraptor's head. Place this circle diagonally from the first one. It should be smaller than the first circle too. Don't place the circle too far away, otherwise the dino's neck will be too long.
Step 4: On the right side of the velociraptor's head, draw an arc on its side as a guide for the top part of the velociraptor's muzzle. Place the arc high on the circle and make the bottom edge flat.
Step 5: On the bottom, draw a small arc that's similar in shape to the letter V as a guide for the velociraptor's lower jaw.
