What’s up gang how is everyone doing on this great day of Friday? I hope you’re all doing well and enjoying the beginning of your weekend. For today’s first lesson I will be doing a tutorial on how to draw a frost wyvern step by step. This will be my first lesson on how to draw a wyvern and because of that I wanted it to be a cool one. The frost wyvern lives in the extreme cold but can live in mild spring like weather as well. When these creatures live in the artic climate they hardly have the urge to move unless they need to eat. But what are wyverns, and are they the same as dragons? Well to answer your question yes, they are a part of the dragon family. The difference between a wyvern and a dragon is very simple. With dragons, they have four legs, a set of wings and a tail right? Well wyverns are the same except they lack front legs. Wyverns have a set of wings and a pair of legs that they use to stand on to walk, climb and jump with. Unlike dragons they are not as massive this is probably due to the fact that they have less body parts. But like dragons, they also live in mountain caves, forests, near lakes and even underground. Drawing wyverns is an extremely fun thing to do because you can use your imagination and be as creative as you want. I remember when all I did was draw dragons and different types of creatures that were half dragon half dinosaur, or half dragon and half bird. Dragons have been a part of our history for centuries and the more popular they become, the more creative artists and kids will get. This tutorial will show you how to draw a frost wyvern step by step using the easy to follow steps and simple to read instructions. When you’re done you can color this creature anything you want to make it your own. I will be back in a while with more drawing fun so stay tuned.

How to Draw a Wyvern

how to draw a frost wyvern step 1

STEP 1.

Start this first step by drawing out the guidelines and shapes to form a line of position for your wyvern. Start with a small egg shape for the head and then add the guidelines. Next draw another circle for the mid section of the wyvern’s body. After that is done you can then add the wing lines and then the tail line.

STEP 2.

You will start this step by sketching out the beginning shapes of the wyvern's arm/wing. Now when you do that make sure the wings looks sort of bony and follow the same instructions on the other wing to the right. You will then draw out the beginning shape of the skull and then back bone of the wyvern as well.

STEP 3.

As you can see once you’re done with the third step your wyvern should start looking like a cross between a dragon fossil and a skeleton. Finish off the shape of the arm like wing and then finish drawing out the shape of the frills on his back. You will then sketch out the tail which is under the jaw a bit and then add the shape of the frilled spikes behind the head.

STEP 4.

You have now reached step four and with this step you will start sketching out the shapes of the thick scales that begin on the wyvern's back and move down through the tail. Once you have completed the scales for this step you can start sketching out the loose tissue that makes up the wings. Detail or define the face of the beast on the bottom jaw line and then move to the next step.

STEP 5.

Wow there is so many steps before the finished product huh? Well I guess it has to be that way in order to get a good drawing. You will finish the scale shapes in this step which should take you no more than ten minutes. When you are done doing that you can start adding some definition to the wings and then add some shading on the forearm of the left arm/wing. Add more detail to the face above the brow and then proceed onto the next step.

STEP 6.

Well you have finally made it to the last drawing step and all you have to do here is add some detailing to the scales as seen here. You will also need to draw in the teeth and then the eye as well as shading to the shoulder of the wyvern's wing. You can erase any guidelines or shapes that can be seen in the drawing to clean up your work.

STEP 7.

When you're finally done you should have come out with a drawing that looks like the one you see here. All you have to do now is get creative and choose your colors to color your wyvern in with. I hope you had a ton of fun learning how to draw a frost wyvern step by step.
