Today we will be drawing the Snake Dragon. What is a snake dragon? It is a lower class beast that evolved from the snake. The older the serpent creature gets, the more draconic it will form. At about twenty years of age, this reptile is not considered a dragon at all; it is referred to being more of a snake than dragon. These beasts can grow up to ten feet in height and seventy four in length. What scientists find unusual about the Snake Dragon’s behavior is that, the younger the creature, the friendlier. As the dragon gets older, it matures and becomes more aggressive. Travelers can find these fascinating evolving creatures in deserts, mountains, rainforests, woodlands, and by the ocean. Snake Dragons that live in the desert area are consumed by the ferocious Green Dragon. These beasts will swallow the measly little serpent with ease compared to its enormous size. Since, these dragons are small; they have excellent agility and are extremely poisonous, this helps them outrun and defend from larger predators. The poison of a Snake Dragon can kill an elephant sized beast in no more than five minutes. That elapsed time compared to a human is incredibly dangerous. A human can be killed in one minute. The dragon’s poison runs through its teeth. The poison first enters the blood stream and instantly travels to the heart. It paralyzes it and the prey dies from a stroke. So although the dragon looks cute and cuddly, it can whip up a deadly bite. Approximately a thousand people are killed from these dragons. Luckily there is anti-venom. There is always a way to cure poison, it is nature’s treat. Eventually, as the Snake Dragon gets older, its poison wares away. This is because; the dragon evolves into a larger predator as it grows. It can reach the length of two school buses and the height of twenty feet (adult size). So, I hope you learned a lot about this unusual creature. In this tutorial, we are drawing a twenty year old Snake Dragon. Remember it isn’t considered a dragon but considered more of a serpent. It took me an hour to color and draw this creature. I used Adobe Photoshop CS to color the entire image. The sketch was done on my drawing pad using a mechanical pencil and a white kneaded eraser. The step by step instructions will help you draw this simple looking dragon with ease, and forget to read the tips I left for you in the steps. I hope this tutorial comes of use! Use your imagination and have fun!
