This is going to be a quick tutorial on how to sketch, draw and shade a simple looking black and white dragon head. I know I have one already submitted a dragon head, but I was thinking that this time, I would actually show people how to do the shading and how to get that glossy looking effect you see in a lot of dragon drawings that you see in magazines or posters or even in some art that you see from individuals. DragoArt is a site that likes to teach kids and adults how to draw, color, shade, sketch the hole nine with very simple instructions and easy looking large tutorials that make it that much easier for users to learn from. If you notice we take pride in our finished colored drawings to give some ideas on what colors to use or to use the colors we have as a reference to tweak your own colors. Dragons are very popular fantasy characters that people of all ages love learning how to draw. As you can see I have submitted quite a few on this site to give variety and style. I also submitted some interesting concept art. These sketches come from my imagination usually after I get done watching a move or when I am feeling bored but creative at the same time. The dragon head I drew for you today is just a simple looking typical dragon that almost anyone can draw. It is so simple, I would put it in the novice category if it wasn’t for the extra steps of shading and effect detailing that I have included with this tutorial. You can use the same concept for any kind of dragon you choose to draw. All dragons basically have the same style eyes. Some have round pupils, and some have slit pupils. There are all different types of dragons as well that sometimes fall into there own categories like blue dragons, red dragons, white dragons, green dragons, Chinese dragons, Japanese dragons, traditional dragons and the list goes on and one. When ever you learn how to draw any type of dragon the principal always remain the same. You are essentially drawing a reptile. This means you can add scales or leave them out, you can draw a horned back or you can leave them out. You can also draw dragons with two, three, even five heads which would then be called a hydra. Dragons have been a part of mythology from all different cultures from all over the world. They are not just associated with Asians. There are dragon myths from the Romans all the way to the Middle Eastern cultures. No matter how you look at it dragons have always been and will always be a big part of fantasy tales around the world. You will learn how to draw a simple looking dragon head step by step in this detailed tutorial. Have fun.
