Today at DragoArt.com we will learn a simple way to draw the dragon’s talons and how to draw the incredible and complicating dragon hands/claws. Everyone knows how to draw a claw right? In these step by step instructions on this tutorial I will show you how. There are varieties of dragon hands…for now I’ll call them dragon paws. I mix them with a lizard’s, feline’s, birds, monkeys, and human’s paws/hands and feet. You can mix them up in a whole different of sorts. I usually mix mine up with lizards, birds and cats all together. A lizard’s paw is long, bony, and has sharp talons. The same thing goes for a bird except they have large and lumpy scales on their fingers and toes. A cat on the other hand has a paw that has paw-pads underneath and their fingers/toes are stuck together. They also have retractable and hidden talons/claws. I personally love to mix the cat and lizard combination. It makes the creature and dragon have more character. When you draw a dragon paw/foot try focusing on the angle or direction of the foot/paw. I always make a bent directional position of the paws. It takes me a while to proportion the right angles and size of the feet to be able to hold the dragon’s body up. I first sketched out this image on my Wacom tablet using the program Adobe Photoshop CS. It took me a while to draw so I made it as simple as possible. I hope you enjoyed this tutorial!
