How to Draw a Baby Cartoon Dragon

Step 1.

Start this step off by drawing the basic guidelines that you will need to help you sketch this cartoon dragon out easy. Look at the line art and take it step by step always starting at the top and working your way down the paper. The only thing you will need to complete this drawing is a regular pencil and a clean sheet of paper.

Step 2.

All the lines in step 1 are called position lines. Like I said before I use these particular types of lines to help guide you through the tutorial better. After you drew out you lining, you can go ahead and start to sketch out the cartoon dragon. Draw the structure of the face as shown then draw the eyes and horns. Next fill in the neck area and sketch in the arms and hands that look like mixing spoons. Sketch the leg which is bent and then you can move on.

Step 3.

This is where you will be detailing the cartoon dragon a lot more. At this point you can detail the face by drawing a pupil in the eye socket, and holes for the nostrils. Then fill in the other side of the neck to make it look whole, and sketch in the fingers and add some muscle definition on the arms and thighs. Sketch in the tail as well along with drawing the rest of the horns and foot.

Step 4.

This step is the last step and it is short. What you will do is draw out the wings on the cartoon dragon and finish off the hands, toe nails, and tail. After you do all that you can go ahead and erase all the guidelines that you drew in step 1. Erase all the pencil marks too before you move to the next step.

Step 5.

And here is what your cartoon dragon should look like after you are done completely drawing it. Now all that is left to do is color him in any color you want to. I hope you had fun.

This is my version of a cartoon dragon. I figured all the dragons I submitted here online are all pretty much intermediate, so I said to myself “let me do a tutorial on how to draw a cartoon dragon for kids”. I mean I don’t know just how many kids come to this site, but I would think a lot do. The first cartoon dragon I remember growing up as a kid was “Puff the Magic Dragon”, I think that was one of the first dragon cartoons made wasn’t it? Anyways, drawing dragons has always been a passion of mine since I was a small tot. One of my first dragons I ever learned to draw was a fire breathing dragon. I can’t believe how much I have learned since then. As I got older I started to get into dinosaurs which really opened up my imagination. I would sit and think of all the different types of half dragon half dinosaur species I could experiment with threw my art work. I never really used to many step by step books; I basically taught myself how to draw dragons and dinosaurs all by myself. I know this dragon picture for this tutorial isn’t all that great, but some kid is going to look at that and say “wow cool” (I hope). I will say this tutorial is called how to draw a baby dragon. The instructions are super simple, and I think it would be fun for anyone to try out this sketch.
