Remember that Chinese dragon tattoo tutorial that I submitted in black and white? Well I drew another Chinese dragon but this time I wanted it to be solely for art purposes only. What that means is, the sketch and or drawing is not categorized as a tattoo, it’s more along the lines of being a piece of art. So with that said I will be showing you "how to draw dragon art" step by step. This sketch of the Chinese dragon shows how much I truly love these fantasy beast. I chose to keep the coloring the same because it shows more of the detailing and lines that make up this awesome dragon. Art is such a wonderful way to express yourself without all the drama and tears. Some people feel like crying is a great way to express how you feel, or over-eating is another way to swallow the emotions and pain you are going through. I myself like to draw when I feel very creative, and when I feel bitter, happy, sad, mad, and even sometimes I like to draw when I am tired. Anyways this drawing took me forever it seems because I drew all the dragon scales one by one which is extremely time consuming. The overall sketch came out pretty good, I would like to go back and fix the nose a bit, but I will leave that for another day. Well that is all folks I hope you like this lesson on “how to draw dragon art step by step”. This drawing truly does define art when it comes to dragons. Peace out and happy drawing gang!
