FIRST, A WORD OF ENCOURAGEMENT: If your drawing does not come out the way you wanted do not give up because you learn to draw by practice. So draw every day and soon you will be a great artist. Come back every day and print off another worksheet and sketch it. I have lots to choose from it may be that dinosaurs are not your real talent maybe you have a gift for drawing faces or landscapes so try different things and soon your talent will come out.
To print the worksheet below just highlight it and send it to your printer or save to your device to print later. If you have problems try the how to print tab above to get some suggestions, or try one of the updated links below.
Here are two links that might work better on some printers.

You may want to print the project notes below, too..
Start by lightly drawing the circles of the apple. Not too many and have one slightly in front of the other. The circles should not be perfect but be a little flat at the top. Two lines come out of the top for the stem. The stems connect to the branch, use a double line to draw the branch. The leaves come in groups of three; they are round at the stem and come to a blunt point, they are curled so the sides role up.
For interest put some leaves behind the apples and behind the other leaves. Have one leave in front of the apple.
Look at the rough draft to see if it needs any changes.
ADD VALUE (DARKNESS)
The apples are round and the shadows make them look round. Remember the light comes from one side so all the shadows are on the other. There might be reflected shadows and reflected lights, they make it look real.
The leaves are little darker than the apples but just a little and the stem is even darker.
The bottom of the apple has papery parts of the old flower, it looks like a scribble. There are some dots both darker and lighter going up the sides of the apple. The leaves have saw tooth edges.
