I am so excited to be uploading this next tutorial that I started to draw live yesterday but unfortunately the live stream kept crashing on me. Everyone has heard of Chinese and Japanese dragons right? Well what about Asian or oriental dragons? I know that they are all the same because Chinese, and Japanese fall under the Asian culture. This next tutorial that I am about to submit, will show you a really pretty tattoo design that I sketched out and drew yesterday. It is going to be on “how to draw a Asian dragon tattoo design step by step". There is nothing better than drawing your own tattoo designs before you go to a tattoo parlor. My cousin always tells people that they should sketch out a drawing describing what they are looking for as a tattoo before they come in and see him. He urges people to do this even if you are a person that doesn’t know how to draw. If you draw your design on paper, you can take it to the tattoo parlor and talk about your design with your tattoo artist. I drew my version of an Asian dragon with a bunch of flowers and thorned vines wrapping around the beasts body. I think it came out pretty epic, and I also think that you guys will have a blast learning “how to draw an Asian dragon step by step”. I have to separate myself from this tutorial right now because there is more lessons that need to be submitted. I will be back momentarily so keep an eye out for my return. Peace out gang, have fun, and happy drawing!
