Step 1.

Drawing a dragon skull can go two ways, easy or hard. I tried laying out this tutorial as easy as possible, so if you find that there is a difficult part to the lesson, just keep trying until you get it right. Draw the shapes of the mouth which is op   

Step 2.

Begin sketching out the actual shape of the dragon skull's head structure like you see here. Notice how the lining is far from being smooth. Instead there is a lot of uneven lines which is done or drawn to add realism and the contours of the dragons    

Step 3.

Sketch out the sockets for the eyes, ear, nose, and then draw out the shape of the long horn. When that is done add some detailing and definition to the snout of the skull, and then draw in a bunch of sharp teeth from top to bottom.

Step 4.

Now that all the major parts of the dragon skull is drawn out, all you have to do now is sketch in the long skinny looking tongue that wraps around the bottom jaw like so. When that is all set you can then add more detailing and definition to the sku   

Step 5.

You will now finish off your dragon skull by filling in the socket holes, and then inside of the mouth. Next, add definition all around the skull bone which includes cracks, lines, and stripes. Before you draw in all these details, you should erase a

Description: Hello everyone, I hope you all enjoyed your Halloween night yesterday, as I did passing out candy. Anyways, today is the day that I will be uploading some really fun skull tutorials and nothing more. To start let me show you "how to draw a dragon skull", step by step. The reason why I chose to draw a dragon skull is the fact I realized that was one of the skulls that I hadn’t drawn or submitted as a tutorial before. Having said that, I believe that all the artists on this site who enjoy skull art and skull tutorials, will have a blast drawing a dragon skull of their own. It took me a long while to design such an awesome drawing. In total it took me about three hours from start to finish, and then another forty five minutes to lay out the drawing in a lesson with steps and all. I think you’ll have a blast with this tutorial because it is based on a skull, but most importantly, a dragon’s skull. I will meet you guys back here in a bit with more skull lessons coming your way so stay tuned in to see what they are going to be. Peace people!
