Christmas Dragon Drawing Lesson

Step 1.

Start with one guide shape and then the guidelines for the snout and neck.

Step 2.

Here you will draw the snout or muzzle, followed by the forehead and closed mouth line. Notice that the formation to the dragon's face is uneven.

Step 3.

Add the nostrils which are raised a bit, then draw the bumps on the face followed by the eye. The mouth is closed but you should still see the dragon's teeth. Draw the teeth as they overlap the mouth. Add some scales and some of the front part of neck.

Step 4.

Since this is a Christmas themed dragon I wanted to be real festive so I drew a pair of reindeer antlers on the dragon but they are attached to a headband. Once those are drawn in you can add small spikes on the chin and then some small spiked horns behind the headband.

Step 5.

For the last drawing step all you have to do is draw the horns and the rest of the dragon's neck and head. You will also need to add some small pointy spikes down the head and neck then finish everything off by sketching in the scales and other detailing marks on the surface. Erase the mistakes and all the guides too.

Step 6.

That's it, your Christmas dragon is all done and ready to be colored in. If you want your horns to be candied striped just add the lines on them before coloring them in. Good job everyone.

I know someone already uploaded a really nice lesson on a Christmas themed dragon, and because of that I was inspired to do one as well, but not in the traditional Chinese style form. Instead, I will just show you this simple task of drawing a Christmas Dragon head and neck only wearing a pair of reindeer antlers and candy cane striped horns. This dragon is going to be an easy challenge for anyone to tackle. Although for those of you who are novice artists, I think you will find the task a bit harder than usual especially if you are brand new to drawing. My brother has started drawing and its weird to see him go through the stages of when he couldn't draw anything at all, to drawing well enough to make out the subject he is creating. That is the beauty of art. When you do it long enough you become better even if you don't try to be. It's called practice makes perfect. Anyways, I've rambled on about nothing when what I really want to say is Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and Happy Hanukkah. Have fun with this lesson on drawing a Christmas style dragon.
