I was going to submit this dragon lesson about four days ago but I go so side tracked with creating some other fun stuff that I thought you guys would enjoy. So, let me take this drawing lesson off the back burner and submit it now so you too can learn "how to draw a Christmas dragon", step by step. I really didn’t anticipate the dragon coming out so awesome. I had a lot of fun making this concept of a dragon dressed in Christmas gear and I don’t think I have every drawn such a dragon like this before. I think you guys will have fun with this lesson because as of tomorrow, Christmas is exactly one week away from being a reality. I personally can’t wait for Christmas because I love spending all waking morning, and night on spending time with my family as I’m sure all you out there love doing too. Anyways, I’m not going to ramble on about nothing so I will shut up, and just get busy with showing you the secrets to drawing a Christmas Dragon. Have fun guys, and remember to use your drawing on a homemade Christmas card, or even as a picture for the fridge. Peace out people and merry Christmas.

STEP 1.

The first step is to draw some basic guides and shapes for the frame work of your dragon that you are about to draw. Start with a circle for the head, draw a neck like and then attach that neck to another shape which is for the body. Add the wing guides and move to step two.

STEP 6.

Next, begin sketching out the incredibly large front legs and feet like you see here. Notice how I exaggerated the size of the front talons or fest. There should be some muscular definition on the legs like so, and be sure that the legs end up coming out nice and strong looking.

There is only a few more steps left so try and hang in there. You will begin sketching out the left wing starting with the wing's arm. When this part of the wing is drawn, you need to also sketch out the tissue or membrane that creates the actual shape of the wing.

And finally for the last drawing step all you have to do is draw out the lining that actually forms the wings. The lining should be crocked or uneven for added effects. Add some vertical lines for the texture detailing of the wings and then begin cleaning up your Christmas dragon.
