How to draw a dragon

Step 1.

Start with guidelines. Draw an ellipse for head, then draw curved line for neck, connect it with a shoulder. Continue with arms. Draw wings with fingers and long phalanxes. Then, draw a line for a body and connect it with an hip oval. Draw some lines for legs and finish with a long line for tail.

Step 2.

Draw some details for head and neck.

Step 3.

Now, lets add some details to the arms. Draw hands with long fingers and claws.

Step 4.

Lets draw some details for the wings. Notice that phalanxes narrow near the bones. Add a membrane and some wrinkles.

Step 5.

Add some details for feet. Each has four fingers with claws.

Step 6.

Erase useless guidelines and draw eye and the rest of head details, including fin. Add a long line to the neck.

Step 7.

Now, add muscles to the arms and wings.

Step 8.

Draw legs.

Step 9.

Draw tail.

Step 10.

Now it’s time to shade. Don’t forget about an eyebrow.

Step 11.

Smudge this stuff. You’re done!
