Dragon Drawing Tutorial

Step 1.

Draw a circle for the head guide and then sketch in the facial guidelines.

Step 2.

You will sketch out the shape of the dragon's snout and jaw, then draw in the nostril and small horns on the nose tip.

Step 3.

Sketch out the brow and then sketch in the wrinkles on the side of the snout like you see here. Darken the lining around the eye and then add some lightly drawn scales.

Step 4.

Draw in the bottom row of teeth and then draw the thick tongue which curls up at the end. Add some texture detailing to the tongue.

Step 5.

Up next, draw in the upper jaw and add the teeth nicely along the gum line. Notice the teeth are not even or straightly lined.

Step 6.

We will finish this dragon by drawing the neck and head and then the horns. Add detailing to the neck and horns and you can erase your mistakes and guides.

Step 7.

Here is the line art. Now just color in the dragon and you are all done.

Are you up for another dragon drawing in a different texture style? Good, because today we will be drawing another dragon, but this time it's in the style of more reptilian look with the long skinny neck and large bulky head. Of course its a drawing from the side, and this is because I wanted everyone to have fun with the lesson and be able to tackle the task without too much difficulty. O enjoy drawing a dragon and I will return with some other tuts I know you will enjoy.
