Fantasy creatures are not always the typical animal, or person that you associate fantasy beings to be. I know many of you have heard about almost every fantasy creature out there and then there are some of you that have not. You remember that lesson I did on how to draw a Cyclops right? Well how about I show you “how to draw lizardmen step by step”. Now lizardmen are reptilian humanoids that are talked about with folklore, mythology, science fiction stories, fantasy stories and so on. Not only are these creatures called lizardmen, they are called reptoids, snakeoids, lizardfolk etc. In Greek mythology the first King of Athens was Cecrops I, which was half human and half snake. Not too much is known about these creatures all I know is that they are a part of the fantasy world. In the game “Warhammer” there are lizardmen that were used as slaves from the beginning of their time. So as you can see these amphibious creatures of old tales and folklore are always different for every creator of lizardmen. This tutorial will show you how to draw Lizardmen step by step and I guarantee that you will be happy with your results when you are done with your drawing. I made this character so awesome and lifelike it's not even funny. I definitely conveyed power and strength by sketching out such a strong looking, bold body. I still have to upload one more tutorial which means I have to go for now. I will be back so stay tuned. Peace out peeps and stay creative.

How to Draw Lizardmen

how to draw lizardmen step 1

STEP 1.

When drawing lizardmen or a lizard man, it’s best to reference them from different reptiles. You can find these types of references on the internet. What I did for my humanoid reptile was look at different lizards and dinosaurs to get ideas. I really liked how the iguana had that large pocket beneath its jaw. I included that same feature in my lizard folk. In the next step you’ll see different types of lizardfolk.
