Hey guys, it's Chris here and today I'm going to show you how to draw a T-Rex skeleton so what I'm going to start off with is the top of the skull here and it just kind of goes around just like this and bring it down for the snout which is going to be a little bit rounded, kind of goes up a little bit and down. We're going to leave a hole there for the nose, a hole here for where the eyes are and then a hole here and then for the bottom you're just going to kind of bring it in just a little bit. This is for the bottom jaw, up and kind of rounded again. Of course you've got to get some teeth going in there and the same thing on the bottom. Alright now we're going to do the neck and what I'm going to do is I'm going to bring just a line kind of going down just like that almost like an A and I'm going to draw just a couple spinal columns here, some lines going down just to kind of show that there's a spine. Now I'm going to draw a line, kind of a wavy line, an arc going up for the back and up for where the legs meet and a tail. Alright, and then for the ribcage what we're going to do is we're just going to draw a couple lines going down like this and then they get a little bit smaller as they reach the back. This is where the lung cavity is. Then what I'm going to do is I'm going to draw the breastplate which goes down just like this and along, make it a little bit thicker at the front and then you're going to draw the arms here which kind of connect in there and T-Rex's have big heads and little arms so make sure you keep your arms a little bit on the smaller side. You can do them just like that if you want. I'm going to draw a couple lines just showing that there is a, there's a lot of bones in there as well and then bring this up, kind of thicken that line out just a little bit there. In the back here this is where the hip bone is so I'm going to draw it just like that. It doesn't have to be exactly perfect, just have a similar bone shape. I'm going to draw the legs here which bring two parallel lines going down and then kind of round out that edge. Here's the other part of the leg which goes back and kind of connects here like this and then you bring in the last part of the leg which goes forward and a couple feet there and then on the other side I'm going to just kind of follow that along the same way just so you can see the other leg and just kind of the same thing there and then for the back I'm going to draw a triangle right here and a bunch of lines just for where the bones are and they get smaller and smaller as you get to the end of the tail and then you might want to thicken them up on the top of that. And there you go guys, that's your basic T-Rex skeleton. So good luck and stay creative.
