Let’s switch it up a bit with another animal tutorial. I thought since we have dragons as tutorials, let me make a tutorial on a popular dragon that everyone loves to learn about. This tutorial will show you how to draw a Komodo dragon. Now as you may or may not know, komodo dragons are the world’s heaviest living lizards. They can reach up 10 feet long and can weigh as much as 300 pounds when they are full grown. Komodo dragons live in Indonesia’s Lesser Sunda Islands, and they have been living there for millions of years. An interesting fact about these oversized lizards is that we as humans had no idea they were even in existence until about 100 years ago, crazy huh. The appearance of a komodo dragon is pretty simple and is easily picked out from a crowd of other lizards. They have long flat heads, rounded looking snouts, scaly rough skin, short thick bowed legs, and long big muscular tails used for defense. The various islands that the komodo dragons live on, they basically run the show. They are the main predators and they will eat almost anything they can get their teeth into. These reptiles are known to eat pigs, deer, smaller lizards or dragons, large water buffalo, and even humans. When these animals hunt for their prey, they use camouflage and patience while they wait for the perfect opportunity to pounce on its victim. If you are lucky enough to escape from this predators razor sharp teeth and clinching claws, you are only lucky for a little while. The bacteria within the saliva from a komodo dragon will kill you or an animal with in a 24 hour time frame; you will surly die from blood poisoning. If that’s not bad enough after you are dead the Komodo dragon is right behind you ready to feed. They trail their victims with their keen sense of smell and can consume up to 80% of their own body weight. Right now as we speak, the population for these endangered lizards is about 3,000-5,000 on the islands of Komodo all the way to Flores. Why are these subtle looking but dangerous creatures on the endangered list? Well they are an animal that is poached quite often and it doesn’t help that humans are taking over their habitats either. So if you ever run into one of these lizards that really do look like dragons, remember they eat people. This tutorial will show you an easy way to draw a komodo dragon step by step. The easy to follow instructions will make your learning experience a breeze.
