Dragon is one of the coolest characters from the Shrek movies, and how she managed to marry Donkey is beyond me. I'm gonna submit this lesson to celebrate the new Shrek film that is due to be released in April of this year. There really isn't too much to say about her except she was originally the dragon that guarded the castle Princess Fiona was trapped in for many years. She was chained to the castle walls, and at first she was very, very mean. Until she met Donkey that is. Once they met, Dragon fell in love with him and at the time he didn't want nothing to do with her. After a while Donkey came around when the two met up again by the river, both alone, lost, and feeling helpless. He fell for her and since then they have been a happy couple. Dragon is also the proud mother of six “Dronkeys” which is the hybrid product of mixing a dragon and a donkey together. Her look is classic. She has red colored scales, long ears that resemble bat wings, a few spikes on both sides of her jawline, a set of dorsal spines, slitted eyes, a long typical dragon tail, and lastly a pair of wings. Now her wings I have a problem with because she is such a robust looking dragon, but her wings seem too small for her body. What the creators did to her features was brilliant as well. To make her look like a female they gave her a pair of red lips, pouting eyes with long lashes and all, and they kept her quite. She is probably one of the few animal characters in the films that doesn't say a single word. Instead she uses body language to express what she is feeling. Dragon is responsible for getting rid of Lord Farquaad from Far Far Away by swallowing him whole. I used a reference picture from Shrek's main website, to get a good idea on what she looks like. If you liked Princess Fiona's lesson, then you will love learning "how to draw Dragon from Shrek", step by step. I will be back later with more drawing fun so stay tuned in and have your pencils ready to draw again..
