Like with the rest of the dragons you drew in the past, you will need to draw a few shapes and guidelines. Start with a head shape like so, make the neck guide and attach it to the torso shape and then draw the oblong body shape. Lastly, draw the win   


You will now draw the outline or structure of the dragon's head. As you can see it has one visible horn, and the snout and mandibles have points and edges.


The next thing you will do is draw the thick shape of the dragon's neck like so, and then move to step four.


Okay, you will now start drawing out the dragon's mane which like horses starts at the top of the head. Continue to draw out the mane or hair going down the neck in a flowing pattern, and then add some detailing by drawing strand lines. Sketch in the   


You are ready to move onto getting the body drawn out, and as you can see the front legs and talons are very bold, and thick. Draw the chest first, and then draw the wide or strong looking trunk like legs, and then draw the toes. Sketch out the shoul   


This is actually the last drawing step. All you have to do is draw the back, thick tail, and then draw the stomach hind legs and feet. Notice how the toes are thick, long, and strong. Sketch in some detailing around the toes and ankle and then finish

Hey guys! Time for another dragon yet again, but this is going to be on a black dragon with firey traits. Because this beast is in dark blue/green background, I had to create a bluish green subtle skin tone so it will seem to be fitting within the background. This beast is bulkier than the white dragon, which is more noble than this one. I like to have the idea that a dark creature such as this should have sinister traits and whatnot. Make sure you get yourself a few nice tools to prepare your drawings with. Take your time and do not pressure/rush yourself as you progress with the steps. Be sure to check out my other lessons on dragon anatomy to further your understanding about the anatomy of these creatures. Anyways, I hope you'll enjoy this lesson I finished live, thanks so much for viewing and stay tuned for possibly more dragon tturoials! Don't forget to let me know what you think or how you did.
