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 small, curved line that's similar to the letter C for this cartoon triceratops' eye. Sketch lightly at first so that it's easy to erase if you make a mistake. When you get the shape right, darken the line and make it thicker for the eyelashes. The shape should be like a half-circle minus the bottom. Make the tips pointy.
Step 2: Under the eye, near the left, draw a small circle for the iris. In the middle of the iris, draw a smaller circle and shade it in for this cute dinosaur's pupil.
Step 3: On either side of the pupil, draw a tiny circle for highlights. You can draw only one circle if you'd like. Above the eye, draw a long, curved line for the triceratops' thick brow.
Step 4: Below the triceratops' eye, lightly sketch a line that curves to the right for the smile. Darken the line when you get the shape and size right. Add a shorter line on the left side for a smile line. On the right tip of the line, draw a small, triangular shape for the horn on the muzzle. Don't draw the dinosaur's horn too big. Curve the sides and corners. Add a short line to the left of it for the top of the muzzle.
Step 5: On top of the muzzle, draw a line that curves up and to the left for the front part of the chibi triceratops' head. Draw this line higher than the brow. Sketch lightly at first to get the shape right. Under the mouth, draw a short, curved line for the bottom of the head. Inside the muzzle, to the left of the horn, draw a small circle with a curved line on top of it for the nostril.
