How to Draw a Desert Wyrm

Step 1.

Start off this first step by drawing out the guidelines and circle shapes of the Desert Wyrm. First draw out a small circle for the head and two larger circles for the front and back torso. Then from those shapes draw the guidelines for the head, neck, legs, and tail. After you get the guidelines drawn out draw the shapes for the feet as shown.

Step 2.

now in this step you will have to take your time while you sketch out the detailing on the face and the hair on the elongated head. Start by drawing out the structure of the head ad face then sketch in the sunken eyes, nose , and mouth. Now sketch in the long flowing thick hair. Next draw out the shape of the neck starting from underneath and working your way own to the legs. Draw out the hind legs as shown and detail them a bit. Next draw the beginning stages of the frills on his back and the line for the stiff tail.

Step 3.

Now what you need to do here is first take your time, and second sketch out the definition on the hair as shown. Take your time to get a superior drawing. Detail his face by sketching in some teeth and wrinkle lines. next draw the back of the curved neck and sketch in wrinkles on the bottom of the neck and sketch in the lining for the ribs. Draw out the hind leg that is set back and detail the hind leg that is predominate. Sketch the rest of the thick lining for the tail and detail it some more with definition.

Step 4.

In this last step you will be drawing and sketching out the frills that go along the desert wyrms back. You will also detail and define the body of the beast as well. Start by detailing the neck all the way down the front leg and feet. Now detail the back below the frills. Draw out the frills and the webbing between the bony fingers, and add three spikes behind the smallest frill. Finish off this step by adding an arrow tip to the tail and erase all the guidelines and shapes you drew in step 1.

Step 5.

This is what your sketch should look like when you are totally done. Now you are ready to color your creature in and give him a name if you like. This will conclude the tutorial on how to draw a desert wyrm . I hope you learned something new and had a butt load of fun.

Hello again fellow artist and welcome back to DragoArt.Com. Today this tutorial will be on another creature I’ve created called the Desert Wyrm. Now when learning how to draw this beast remember it will be very similar to drawing a dragon. Lets talk first on this fantasy creature from my imagination shall we. First off, the Desert Wyrm is a wingless dragon that lives in the scorching deserts of planet Earth. They are brutal, raging, scavengers who sprint through the sands of different deserts around the world. These creatures are close enemies with the green dragon and feast upon the snake dragon. A Desert Wyrm can grow up to 15 feet tall and 32 feet long. Their long dinosaur looking tails keep them balanced to hold up their elongated head structure. As you can see by the picture the head on one of these animals are extremely long and narrow with a full head of hair, this helps keep their bodies cool while roaming around their hot habitat. The long head attracts most of the heat from the scorching sun allowing these animals to walk long distances. As you can also see they have sharp pointy frills on their backs, these frills act as a balancing agent for the Desert Wyrm. It balances the heat, water, and food levels and keeps the body running smoothly. As mentioned earlier, Desert Wyrms are scavengers. They will eat almost anything to quench their blood thirsty appetite. These beasts can eat up to 80 pounds of food a day when prey is abundant, normally the food chain for these animals run pretty dry because they live in such a hot climate. Desert Wyrms come in a variety of colors. Some of the most common colors for these beasts are green, yellow, and a hazel brown. The one I drew has a hazel green color. I know what you are all asking, “What is the difference between a wyrm and a dragon?” Well, the answer to that question is simple. A wyrm is a dragon that is fair in size and they are wingless. They have the characteristics of a dragon, but they are not labeled as dragons. These creatures are solitary, controlling, and aggressive leaving them totally unapproachable. This tutorial will teach you in detail how to draw a Desert Wyrm step by step. The instructions are always easy to read and understand. I hope you like my very own creation on my very own fantasy creature. You will not see this creation anywhere else on the web, so, enjoy.
