Hello DragoArt people! I greet you warmly and fiery with an awesome tutorial based on the back view of a dragon. Today we will be learning how to draw a back view of a green dragon. This dragon shouldn’t be hard at all. It falls in the intermediate category because of the detailing. Everyone already knows that I love dragons. So today I will give you a special treat. First let me give you a small biography of what I went through when I was drawings this dragon. I thought to myself, “I don’t have any dragons from the front or back view”. So that is when I made the decision to do a tutorial that will show people on how to draw a dragon from the back view. The process for drawing this dragon was really long. I must have spent six hours straight to finish just the drawing. That is because the position itself was a challenge. Now, because I draw a lot of side views and no different views on how to draw dragons, drawing the back view was really difficult to get right. The coloring was really hard too. I had to make every scale that is on this beast. The scales took most of the work. As you can see in the picture, there are two sides. There is the fire and ice side. The fire is fighting the ice. Every time the fire defeats one of the ice spirits, they absorb it. The same goes for the ice side. I used a Wacom tablet to draw out the whole dragon plus the coloring. I also used Adobe Photoshop CS3. For all of you who don’t know what Photoshop is, let me tell you. Photoshop is a program that most artists use to draw and color in it. I use this program with every single one of my drawings. Well anyways, I hope you will enjoy learning how to draw a dragon from the back view. I made this tutorial for all you dragon fans. Have fun learning!
