How to Draw Cynder

Step 1.

Well lets start this first step by drawing out the shapes and guidelines to form a solid frame for this unique looking black dragon. Start with a small egg like shape for the head and then add a dash for the facial guideline. You will then draw a line swirl line for her neck and attach it to the chest body circle. Connect that shape to the hind end with another vertical line. After you draw that out you will add the guidelines for her wings and then the limb lines for all four legs and long curled tail.

Step 2.

In this next step you will start drawing out the facial structure of Cynder's face starting with her snout. Once that is complete you can then add the shape for her eye and then the horn guidelines on her head. Once you have done that you can start sketching out the shape of her neck and all four legs as you see them here. You will also thicken out her tail and then add some shape to her wide open wings.

Step 3.

Well you have reached step three and here you can see that when you are done your Cynder or black dragon should come out looking like this. Start this step by drawing out the shape of her horns and then the bone shapes on her forehead. You will then complete the shape of her jaw and mouth as well as the two small horns on the side of her cheek. Once that is done you can finish drawing out the shape of her body including her legs and feet. Thicken out the dragon tail and then draw out the outline of her perfect looking wings. You will end this step by drawing a chain band around her neck.

Step 4.

This is your second to last drawing step and all you will have to do here finish the shape and design of her wings. Make sure that you include the blade like shapes at the top of each wing. You will then define the band around her neck and then start drawing out the body markings on Cynder's entire body. Add some claw lines on her toes and then draw an arrow like tip to her tail.

Step 5.

Now that you have completed the drawing sketch of Cynder you will finish her off by adding some minor details and definition. Give her a nostril hole and then add some torn circles on her wings. Detail the skin of her body and then detail around the neck brace as well as her leg bracelets, tail and tip. Erase all the guidelines and shapes that you drew in step one.

Step 6.

This is what your completed drawing of Cynder from Spyro should look like. All you have to do now is color her in and you are done. I hope you liked learning how to draw Cynder from The Legend of Spyro A New Beginning step by step.

Welcome back DragoArt members and fans and to another sweet drawing lesson. I know that there are many fans out there that absolutely love Spyro and some of the characters that join him in the video game series. As for me I have a favorite character (other than Spyro) that I thought I would give you guys a lesson on. So having said that, I will show you "how to draw Cynder" which is a dragon from “The Legend of Spyro: A New Beginning”. Now for those of you that have no idea who Cynder is I will give you the basic 411 on this character. First off Cynder is a black dragon that is very fierce, big and strong. She is the main villain in the game and although she is large, she is the same breed that Spyro is. Which means that she comes from the same egg stock that Spyro comes from without being related. The reason why she's evil is because her egg was stolen by the Dark Master's forces and of course that would mean that she would be raised and taught by them who are under the influence of the Dark Master. Now because she was brought up under Malefor’s power, she became very powerful very fast. She was also a very bad mannered and tempered black dragon who was mislead by the wrong hand. The whole purpose of her gaining strength and size was to steal the power of the Guardians so that Malefor can be freed from his prison. Cynder first appeared in the Spyro game series with “A New Beginning” and was the villain. But when she appeared in two other Spyro games she is one of the main characters of the story and she is also a good guy. Cynder looks very much like Spyro when she is in her normal form. When she was in “Dawn of the Dragon” she is seen in her teenage form. And I have to say for a teen black dragon she is very pretty and you can definitely tell she is a girl. I love all the Spyro games as well as all of the characters that are a part of it. This lesson will show you "how to draw Cynder, step by step". I made sure that the steps are simple to follow and the instructions are easy to read. I hope you have fun with this online drawing tutorial as I did making it. I will be back in a while with more drawing fun so stay tuned.
