This tutorial is on a funny character from the Walt Disney animated movie, Mulan. Mushu is his name and being a guardian is his game. He is a small, sleek, wimpy looking dragon that is just dying to be an ancient guardian once more, unfortunately though the elders are not so sure of handing him that type of responsibility again. Mushu then takes matters into his own hands, the elders send Mushu to wake up and summon the Great Stone Dragon. After banging the gong several times he gets frustrated and starts whacking it with his gong which leads to breaking the head clean off the statue. The elders keep calling for the Great stone dragon, Mushu picks up the heavy oversized head and starts responding to the elders. They ask him to go out and protect Mulan from disaster and possible death as she is forced by her own hand to go to war and fight in place of her father who is old and barley walking. So Mushu takes off and follows Mulan on her journey without her knowing at first. He then reveals himself to her and explains that the ancestors sent him to protect and guide her through her trying times. She then states “My ancestors sent me a lizard to help me?” Feeling offended by the harsh comment he sets her straight and lets her know that he is not a lizard and says “I don’t do that tongue thing”. I like this character very much, one reason is because Eddie Murphy does the voice character for Mushu, and second he is a very spunky dragon. He may be pint size but his heart is as big as they come. This tutorial will show you just how easy it is to draw Mushu step by step. I had a ton of fun drawing him out and I know you will too.
