Well guys here is the other drawing I was creating while I was live yesterday and as you can see it's on another dragon. Today I will be showing you "how to draw a pixie dragon", step by step. I think you guys are really going to like this one. Dragons are always a favorite of mine to draw and when a good idea comes to mind, I will automatically want to start the creating process. Sometimes I will take the idea from someone if it is requested from me, but normally I will go ahead and draw a new dragon of my own. I had a lot of fun making this fairy or pixie dragon, and if you are a lover of Dragoart dragons you will too. The dragon is drawn from a side view which is going to make creating this colorful reptile a bit easier then you're used to. Well, since I have said all I can say about dragons, I will leave this description as is. When you start tackling this tut on drawing a pixie dragon, you might want to take your time so it comes out as nice as possible. Thanks for viewing and joining me live yesterday I had a blast. Adios people and enjoy!

How to Draw a Pixie Dragon, Fairy Dragon

how to draw a pixie dragon, fairy dragon step 1

STEP 1.

Let's begin by drawing three shapes, one for the head, one for the torso, and another for the back end of the dragon's body. Connect the head shape to the torso with a neck guide.

STEP 2.

The next thing you will do is sketch out the shape or structure of the dragon's head. Start at the forehead and then draw the snout as well as the mouth line, chin, and jawline.

STEP 3.

We are going to keep the momentum going by working on the head and face. Sketch out the back part of the dragons frill shape behind the jaw, then draw the long horns and bony structure design behind the head. Draw the eyes, nostrils, then some definition marks on the snout.

STEP 4.

Now that the head and face is complete, we can tackle the task of drawing out the dragon's body. Start with making the long neck like so, then draw the pocked out chest. Draw the arm and hand, then make some frills on the elbow of this pixie dragon. You will end this step by sketching out the thigh as well as adding some skin texture definition.

STEP 5.

Draw the back and tail lining for your pixie dragon, then draw in the stomach, as well as the other leg. When the legs are all drawn, sketch in the muscle detailing, then draw the long feet and toes. Notice the tissue behind each foot, this is supposed to bring out the fairy image in this dragon.

STEP 6.

Now that your dragon's body is almost all drawn in, you can get the tail sketched out. This should start off thick, but then thin out as you can see here. The end of the tail should curl in a boxy manner. Draw the other talon then sketch in the tail detailing up near the butt area.

STEP 7.

Now it's time to draw some beautiful fairy wings on your pixie dragon. This is where you can be as creative as you like. You can make the same style wings as you see here, or go with your own style. You will need to draw some soft looking skin tissue down the tail as well as some stringy frills. Erase your mistakes then you are ready to color in your new dragon drawing.
