Learn How to Draw Dragons!
Learning how to draw dragons is a popular choice! The dragon is one of the most whimsical characters, and has been pictured in many different ways. Here we'll keep our dragon as simple as possible, just adding a few little details at the end.
As always remember to draw lightly so that it's easy to erase your guide lines at the end and follow the example steps as closely as you can.
Step 1 - Body and Head
Step 2 - Feet, Nose & Wings
Two bent lines will start the wings. Finish off this step by adding a second line for both the tail and neck as shown. Notice how these lines make the neck and tail get thicker as they get closer to the body.
Step 3 - Eyes, Arms, Tail
Let's add some details to the face - two egg shapes for the eyes, an oval for the nostrils, and a couple of simple curves for the mouth.
Starting at the open end of each wing line, continue with some bumps and close the line at the body. 3 ovals will start to form the arms and hands. Connect the feet to the body with a few simple curved lines. Now close the end of the tail with a small triangle.
Step 4 - Final Details
Add a filled circle to each eye, with a few open circles scattered over the dragon's body to give him some scales on his dragon skin. Close up the arms and use a few small circles for toes on each foot. Two more triangle shapes for "horns" on top of the dragon's head. And finally, add a few simple "puffs of smoke" near the dragon's nostrils.
I hope you have enjoyed learning how to draw dragons!
