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 iguanodon's body. To draw the circle, first make four marks to determine its 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 a slightly bigger circle as a guide for the back of the dinosaur's body. Use the four-marks method to draw this circle too. The top edge of this circle should be higher than the first circle. Don't place the circles too far apart, otherwise your iguanodon will be too long.
Step 3: On the top, right side, draw yet another circle as a guide for the iguanodon's head. This circle should be about one-fourth the size of the first one. Place it farther and higher than the first circle.
Step 4: To the right of the head, draw a big sideways arc as a guide for the iguanodon's muzzle. Pay attention to the size of this arc in relation to the dinosaur's head. They should be almost equal in size.
Step 5: Under the first circle, draw an angled line as a guide for front limb. Pay attention to how and where the line bends. To the right, draw a line that angles slightly less as the guide for the iguanodon's other front limb.
