How to Draw a Brown Sky Dragon

Step 1.

Lets start off this step by drawing out the guidelines and circle shapes as shown. First start by drawing out a circle for the head and two other larger circles for the mid part of the dragons body as you see it in the first step. After you get the shapes drawn out draw all the guidelines until they are connected like the image above.

Step 2.

In this step you will start to draw out the shape of the sky dragon's head. First draw the spiked horns that rest on top of the skull, then draw out the eye and then the mouth. After that the last thing to draw for the head is the spiked beard. You can move down the drawing and draw out the spiked frills on the back then draw the shape of the front arms and the muscle definition and part of the front claw. Then you can draw out the thigh and part of the foot with the under lining of the tail that forms a arrow headed tip. After you sketch out the bottom part of the dragon the lst thing to do in this step is draw the large wing as you see here.

Step 3.

Step 3 is all about adding detail and finishing off the arms, legs and feet. First start by drawing the detailing on the dragons face. The best way to see what exactly has to be done, enlarge the image and copy from there. Now sketch out the skin based beard under the neck of the sky dragon. After that detail the neck with a simnple line for definition. Now finish the claw and forearm of the dragon. Move over to the right and sketch in the other inner leg and foot. Draw out the nails and detail the thighs. Lastly define the arm of the wing as you can see. The lines you need to draw out next are always colored red.

Step 4.

In this last step of drawing what you will be doing is detailing and defining some more. detailing the horned frills around the face of the dragon is the first thing you will do. Now draw out the inner arm and claw of the dragon before detailing the body a bit more. Sketch in some definition lines through out the body as shown to form a realistic look to the skin based wing. Notice how the wing attaches to the lower part of the tail. After you complete the tasks in this step erase all the guidelines and shapes you drew in step 1.

Step 5.

That is it you are finished. That wasn't to hard right. That completes this tutorial on how to draw a brown sky dragon. Remember you can color the sky dragon any color you want to. Like I said they come in all different unique colors so let your imagination go wild.

Welcome again fellow artist to this tutorial on yet another mythical creature called the Brown Sky Dragon. I know I haven't been submitting tutorials, but that is because I have been on vacation, and when you are on vacation you tend to try not to work as much. This DragoArt dragon comes from my imagination. I want to make this sky dragon a female for once because not all dragons are males. You may be thinking to yourself what exactly is a sky dragon? Well a sky dragon happens to come in a variety of unique colors depending on their skill level. That's right they are magical, but not only do they poses magical powers they are also very kind, loyal, heroic, giving, and docile creatures. Let me get back to their colors, when a sky dragon carries a medium to dull color (like the brown one here today) this means that they are very seasoned, wise and hold great powers. When these particular dragons are summoned by wizards and sorcerers, they are usually being asked to help defend against evil and other threatening monsters. Sky dragons are also called upon by great kings from different kingdoms across the earth. They spend most of their days living beyond the skies with the ability to sleep on top of the clouds. With their very peaceful nature, almost all villains and other dark beings take their kindness for weakness, and this is where they are sadly mistaken. No sky dragon will ever be had by someone that only wishes to do wrong to their race or other innocent beings. These beautiful creatures range in size between 18-30 feet long and 12-20 feet high. The brighter and more vivid their color the less experience they have in magic. A female sky dragon can have up to three eggs and will be very protective over her unborn skietts (pronounced-sky-etts). They are called this to differentiate the ages of newborns over toddlers. Once they reach the age of a toddler they will be called simply young adults. By the time they are 3 they will start to learn how to hold themselves on top of the clouds. Because a mother cannot lay her eggs in the sky she must reside on earth for a total of three years. These docile fantasy creatures live and die protecting the innocent from evil. In this tutorial you will learn how to draw a brown sky dragon step by step. Not only will you learn how to draw this dragon, it will also teach you how to draw Chinese dragons, and also how to draw dragon heads and dragon wings. The reason you will learn this is because the similar shape of the sky dragon to the Chinese dragon. No matter what types of dragons you learn to draw everyone will teach you something different. I hope you have fun with this tutorial as I did.
