I probably wouldn't have seen the day that I submit a full lesson on ”how to draw a dragon head”. This tutorial will show you the basics step by step on the tips to draw a dragon head. I'm not too good at drawing dragons, nor am I interested in these creatures anymore like I used to back in 2004-2007. I was utterly obsessed with these creatures and became fascinated amongst other great artists who drew interpretations of these remarkable beasts amazingly. I'm very proud on how this image turned out; with mixing blue and purple monochromatic hues and finishing it off with a red-ish purple background. I admit, the background could have been exciting and dragon-like but, I have other lessons to work on before the day ends. The drawing took around four hours to accomplish equipped with the inspiration of a song I've been listening constantly. If you've watched the “Chronicles of Riddick”, you'll find that the soundtrack is adventurous and exciting. Anywho, I will teach you the simplicity on what forms these mythical creatures. For now, there's a few tips that explain important parts of the dragon head you should familiarize yourself with. Drawing a dragon can be very difficult and it so has been for me. I will only teach you on what I know and what I observe from other art. These creatures come in many different styles and types that your mind will become lost on how huge the fantasy world is. Customizing a dragon is one of an artists favorite part about creating them. The colors also portray the personality and appearance of your mythical beast. Cool colors (blue, green, purple) will emphasize a dragon's dark – cold presence or, possibly a beast who is less fearsome. Warm colors are alarming and beautiful. They spark either 'warning' or a 'defense mechanism' against other beasts. Experiment and explore all the different possibilities you can add to your mythical beast. You'll be surprised on what you come up with. I recommend observing other dragon art and animals that can give you a good base idea for style or colors. Anywho, I really hope you'll enjoy this lesson on ”how to draw a dragon head step by step”. Thanks for viewing and don't forget feedback!
