Dragon Spirit Drawing Tutorial

Artist: Dawn / February 2, 2018

Step 1.

Draw a circle for the head and then draw in the long body guideline.

Step 2.

Up next, draw the mouth and make sure the mouth is wide open. When that is done you can draw the nostril and small horn.

Step 3.

Up next, just draw a row of gums for your dragon spirit's teeth.

Step 4.

You will now fill the mouth with sharp teeth on both the bottom and upper jaw.

Step 5.

Up next, draw in the rest of the head which should also include the eye. Add the crinkle on the snout and then draw the hairy frills. When that is done you can draw the long whiskers.

Step 6.

We will now draw in the horns in total there are four or five. Next draw the jaw and you can move to step seven.

Step 7.

We can now draw the body. Notice the pose of motion that this dragon body is in. It's slithering like a snake. Add the small back legs and feet, then proceed to the next step.

Step 8.

For the last drawing step all you have to do is draw in the scales on the body and then draw the fur or hair that flows down the dragon spirit's back. Add another set of legs and feet and then a tuft of hair on the tip of the tail. Erase the mistakes   

Step 9.

That's it, you are all done. Now you can color in your spirit dragon and show people what you have done.
