I've captured another image in my mind that included a dragon and a warrior that flew with it. While doodling around, inspiration hit me while I listened to “the Chairman's Waltz” (a great and emotion capturing song). Countless people have been asking me to submit a tutorial on ”how to draw a dragon rider”. There are so many styles to draw these types of riders in. Instead of riding a horse, riders are flying and guiding a dragon amongst their endeavours. Besides, who wouldn't want to fly with a kickarse fire breathing creature? The original image was much more dull then what's shown. I've posted the same picture on Facebook but it lacked deep tones and value. I thought blue would emphasize on the bond that both of these fliers hold. The fire symbolizes the strength that a rider and her dragon are as one. The moon shines gracefully; embracing the power of them combined. To "draw a dragon rider", you'll need to know the basics on how to draw a dragon. I have an immensely large category focusing on dragons beneath the “fantasy” category. Most of those tutorials are fairly old and need revamping to teach you avid artists correctly. Anyways, there are lots of movies which feature dragon riders. Eragon is a great example of a noble and compacted bond between dragon and man. Another movie is “How to Train Your Dragon”; it features diverse types of dragons and how humans interpret them incorrectly. Later on, they come together and help eachother in harmony. Lastly, a great movie that's been dear with me since the beginning of my dragon obsession is “Dragon Heart”. It's probably the greatest movie that made emotions bubble at the very end. Remembering all these movies sparked an urge to draw and complete a tutorial on “how to draw a dragon rider step by step”. This tutorial should be very helpful for those that enjoy drawing these creatures. It would be a great thing if you left some feedback or critiques. Don't forget to rate and comment folks! Thanks for viewing and peace out!
