How to Draw a Cute Dragon

Artist: Dawn / March 4, 2010

Step 1.

Start with a circle for the head and then add teh facial guidelines. Next draw teh shape of teh long neck, and then attach it to another circle shape for the body. Lastly, add the long tail, and then the arm and hand lines and shapes.

Step 2.

Begin sketching out the shape of the head, and notice the bumps on the snout for the nostrils, and then the horn. Add some detailing before yo move to the next step.

Step 3.

Sketch the shape of the dragons neck all the way to the mid part of the back. Next draw the small shaped simple looking wings, and then draw the humps on the sides of the body for the back legs. This dragon is in a sleeping position, so have fun with   

Step 4.

Draw the right horn and then draw the small round eye and color in the pupil. Add an eyebrow, and then draw the nostril and color in a hole. Finish sketching out the neck, and then draw the front leg, and paw or claw. Also, draw more of the back leg    

Step 5.

Continue to sketch out the front leg and claws, and then draw the back foot and some of the tail. Add some detailing for the toes and front claws. That's it, just move to the next step.

Step 6.

For your last drawing step all you need to do now is sketch out the back, and tail. Notice I drew an arrow tipped tail, but you can choose to draw any type you want. Erase all the guidelines and shapes that you drew in step one to prepare your dragon   

Step 7.

That's it you're done. You have just drew yourself a fantastic looking baby dragon that is cute and easy. Color in your fantasy creature, and that's it. I had so much fun drawing this cute dragon with you all. Join me again for more colorful fun.
