Another dragon here for the books and this time it is really going to be fun because of the style and texture of the dragon body. The scales were a blast to draw because they are laid out in a very textured form making the dragon body look really detailed and defined. Sketching out this dragon took me three hours because I wanted it to come out looking portioned and very detailed. Although the overall creation of the dragon took so long to draw, it was the scales that became such a time consuming task. The reason being is because each scale was hand drawn and there is scales all over the dragon’s body including the dragon head. I love the way the chest and belly scales pop out in a very broad, bold way making this red dragon look fierce and in control. I have written so many tutorials out on so many different dragons. A lot of hard work went into this dragon drawing and I really am excited to share with all of you this tutorial on “how to draw a dragon step by step”. The dragon is in the advanced section because it does take time to sketch out and draw the whole package from head to tail. If you would like to color in the dragon a different shade, than go right a head and do so. I still have to upload more lessons, and the day is still young so check back in a bit to see what’s new. Have fun and happy dragon drawing.
