How to Draw a Dragon Tamer

Step 1.

As you can see you will start off this first step of this tutorial with some very basic guidelines and shapes. Are you ready to get started or what? Good, then let's go! First draw a small circle shape for her head and then add the shape of the bottom portion of her face. Next draw out the body's line of position and add the shape of her torso and wing shape. You will then add the lines for her legs.

Step 2.

In this next step you will start adding the feather tip shapes as you see them here. Once that is done you can then start sketching in the mouth and thicken her body below the waist including her legs. You will also draw the lines for her cloth which is blowing in the wind. Add the arm lines and hand shapes.

Step 3.

When you are done with this step which is step three, you will see that your character is coming along nicely. You will start this step by sketching out the jagged shape of her hair style and then add more facial features to her, what else? Face. Sketch the shape of the wing bone and then the arm and legs. You will add more of the cloth lines and start drawing out the shape of the baby dragon sitting in the palm of her hand.

Step 4.

Wow, you have already made it to step four! Tell me, what do you think so far? It's not that bad right? Good, let us start this fourth step by sketching out the small feathered wing within her large wing as shown to you here. Next give her some bangs and then draw the baby dragon in more detail. You will finish the shape and style of her cloth, and then add the lining for her boots and pants as well as her shirt. Oh yeah, make sure you draw the spikes on the back of her wing on top of the arm.

Step 5.

Well you are almost done with this lesson and you will be more detailed. You will start by sketching out the thorned headdress on her head and then finish the sketch of the baby dragon. You will then start adding some definition and detail to her clothes as well as her wings and boots. Once that is done you may start erasing some of the guidelines you no longer need.

Step 6.

This is your last drawing step and what you will do now is finish off the sketching of her wing by adding detail and definition or feather ruffles. You will then add the crease lines in her blowing scarf and add more detail to her boots and legs. Erase the guidelines that you drew in step one to finish cleaning up your sketch.

Step 7.

Once you are done your dragon tamer and baby dragon should come out looking like the one you see here. See, wasn't that easy as eating pie or what? I am very proud of all of you that expand your drawing potential and skills when you teach yourself how to draw. I hope you had fun with this lesson on how to draw a dragon tamer step by step.

Drawing is a fun and exciting experience that expands my mind and brings me to another world. When I start a drawing I always try and get lost into what I’m doing and usually that happens. But sometimes that just doesn’t happen. But with this drawing I did get involved and lost in my work because I was drawing this character live online. I’m not quite sure what to call this girl with the one wing on her back and I have been thinking about a name for her which is why I didn't submitted her yesterday. I did however come up with a description header and that is; how to draw a dragon tamer step by step. Now I got the idea of calling her a dragon tamer because she has one wing that is kind of angelic and because she is holding a baby dragon in her hand with the tail wrapped around her wrist and arm. I think that this drawing came out super sweet and I absolutely love the coloring that I did. The landscape also came out epic because I tilted the background so that it would look like she is up front and in your face. I made my own brush in Photoshop and added a bunch of baby dragons as well as adult dragons flying all around in the sky. Even though she is a dragon tamer, she is only a teenage girl. I wanted to give her a name that suits her appearance, so I came up with Dragcena which is pronounced (drag-see-nah). She has a very lanky looking body because her one wing has to aid her in speed when she is on foot running. She normally rides a white horse named Whisper which is also her long term friend and buddy. Whisper is a horse that has a diamond shaped crystal in the middle of her forehead which enables Dragcena to understand and communicate with Whisper. Anyways, for those of you that watched me draw out this character I now give you the chance to learn how to draw a dragon tamer step by step. All the instructions and steps are laid out easy enough for artist of all skill levels to try out. I will be back in a while with other tutorials for taking. Until then I bid thee farewell.
