Drawing a Three-Quarter View of Triceratops: With practice, you can change flat shapes into three-dimensional or “3-D” forms. Imagine this dinosaur slowly turning its body so that its giant horns almost point toward you.
1. Block: Start sketching a large oval for its body. Two smaller ovals set the position for its hind and front legs. Now draw the shape for its massive head. Remember to draw lightly so you can erase if you want to.
3. Sketch: Continue sketching lines until you begin to see the contours, or curves of its body, legs, and tail. This is called tightening the lines of your drawing. Imagine how the tough, leathery skin covers different muscles.
What do you think the front view of Triceratops would look like?
