How to Draw a Dragon for Kids

Artist: Dawn / January 23, 2011

Step 1.

Start with three circles, and then draw the connecting lines. This is going to be your framework for your new dragon.

Step 2.

Now you have to draw out the head, and neck like so. Be sure to also draw that shape for the snout or nose of the dragon too.

Step 3.

Now it's time to draw out the cheek, and then draw out the eyes which sort of looks like snake eyes. Next, make some simple lines for the nose, and mouth.

Step 4.

Now begin drawing in the horns which is on the face, nose and behind the cheek. Also, you will need to draw in the small circles for the glare effect in the eyes.

Step 5.

Now it's time that you draw out the chest, and front arms and hands, and then draw out the small wings like so.

Step 6.

You are almost done with this lesson, and as you can see it's coming along nicely. What you need to do next is draw out the body including the tail, and then move to the next.

Step 7.

Lastly, draw out the hind legs, and foot. Don't forget to draw in the toes too. Erase the lines and shapes that you drew in step one to clean up your new dragon.

Step 8.

When you're done you should have a dragon that looks like the one you see here. Just color this fantasy creature in and you are all set.

Description: I hope you enjoyed the video version of this simple tutorial on "how to draw a dragon for kids". For some of you that don’t have fast internet speed, I thought it would be proper to upload a regular tutorial on the very same dragon. Drawing dragons is always fun, but when you are a kid this task can get a bit frustrating. I started this “for kids” collection because my seven year old sister is always trying to draw my tutorials I have on the site. Sometimes she gets so mad that she isn’t able to draw the animals that she loves, and a dragon is one of them. This tutorial is dedicated to her, and to everyone else that would love to make their own dragon but can’t. So please enjoy this tutorial on how to draw a dragon for kids.
