When was the last time I did a lesson on an Asian dragon? A long time ago that's when. Today I will be showing you how to draw an Asian dragon, step by step. This is another simple shaped head from the side view of a dragon in a Chinese style. There are whiskers that hang from the snout, and the neck has prominent scales then other dragon lessons do. I didn't draw a traditional style Asian dragon because I wanted to do something different. Anyways, I hope you like this lesson on drawing an Asian dragon, I will be back with another dragon in a bit.
