Easy to Draw Dragon Skeleton

Step 1.

Lets start off this step the same way I start all my steps, draw some basic guidelines. For me starting at the top is always best. Having said that draw out the dragons top and bottom part of the jaw, from that draw a curved line for the neck that stops at the top of the torso. Now draw the top of the torso with an egg shape, from that draw out the arm lining as well as the leg, tail, and wing. Just follow the image above and you should do okay.

Step 2.

In this step you will be sketching out the details in the skull by drawing the eye socket hole, nose hole, and snout hole. After that draw in every individual tooth until it looks exactly like the image above. If you cant see the details, enlarge the tutorial and learn from the bigger picture. After you have the skull down packed draw out the horns and neck bones which are a bunch of indented small circles. Do the same thing for the lower spine. Now you can draw in some of the bottom limb as shown.

Step 3.

Now this is where it starts to get interesting and time consuming. Draw out each and every rib bone starting from the top part of the chest. Then what you do is start sketching out the dragons bones on the hands so that it looks like a skeleton. As you can see this skeleton dragon is coming out pretty good so far, but you ain't seen nothing yet. After you draw out the dragons foot and inner leg bones move onto the next step.

Step 4.

See all those little bones that are sitting on top of the bigger neck bones? Well you have to draw those in as well. Start sketching out the skeleton dragons wing bones for the top part where the skin usually goes, then move onto drawing the arm bones of the dragon. After you do that then you can draw the four ribs on the lower part of the torso to finish off this step.

Step 5.

So far as you can see this is an easy way to draw a dragon skeleton isn't it? This is the final step for drawing the bones on the dragon. In this step you will draw the inner leg bones and feet, the inner rib cage, tail bones and the other wing bones. The tail bones kinda resemble the bones that dogs chew on, so that should give you an idea on how to shape those bones out. After you are finished with the steps from this step you can erase the light guidelines that you drew in step 1. Move onto the next step shall we?

Step 6.

This is the finished sketch which is the exact same one as above. I just wanted to show you how your sketch should look after it is done here so you wouldn't have to scroll up to see it again. Now if you go down one more step you will see what the dragon looked like when it was alive and well. I will see you fellow artist soon.

Step 7.

Here you have the finished skeleton dragon with it's skin on. I know, he looks better with the skin off. Hey I tried I just wasn't into it on this par but I will soon submit another kick butt dragon.

Everyone knows what a dragon looks like right? Well did you ever wonder what the inside of a dragon would look like? Guess what, your in luck because in this tutorial not only will you be seeing the inside of a dragon, but you will be learning how to draw an easy dragon skeleton as well. I know this may look hard but it’s really not. All you have to do is take your time with each and every step, and with each and every bone. I don’t mean spend all day with a fine tooth comb, I’m just talking about not rushing through this piece of art, when you look, it's pretty cool to see. This sketch took me approximately 2 days to accomplish, only because I would come back to it. I wasn’t drawing it on a steady constant basis. The tutorial will show you how to draw the skull of the dragon as well as the neck, ribs, wing bones, tail bones, teeth, arms, hands, the top and bottom of the legs, the spine, and finally the feet. After you are done with all the steps, I filled in what the skeleton dragon really looked like with all the skin and color back on its bones. When ever you learn how to draw any dragon, you always must remember that each one will look different on the outside, but in the inside they are all the same. All the dragons and other tutorials that I submit, are for all members and users to learn from, and have fun with. I took them from my very own imagination and I am sharing my creatures with all of you. I have been drawing since I was six years old and I am now 24, so I have a few years under my belt in the drawing and sketching field. Drawing dragons still remains and will always be my all time favorite thing to draw. So I hope you enjoy learning how to draw an easy dragon skeleton and I promise there are more from where this one came from. If you would like to leave me a comment feel free to do so.
