Step 1.

Start off by drawing the guide shape for the dragon head and then draw in the guidelines for the muzzle and the neck.

Step 2.

You will start at the front and begin to draw round tip of the nose. It's almost shaped the the edge of an axe. Continue the lining to form the bridge and be sure there is a small hump, then finish by drawing the forehead shape. You will then complet   

Step 3.

Go ahead and draw the nostril along with the embedded eye shape. Draw a slit for the pupil and then fill the dragon's mouth with pointed teeth.

Step 4.

Dragon's have horns and frilled spikes on their heads and around the sides of their jaws. This is what you will draw next. It's almost like a BURST effect. Once that is completed you can add the chin.

Step 5.

For the last step just draw the dragon's neck and then you're done. Erase the mistakes to clean up the drawing as well as the guides.

Step 6.

Your dragon is complete. I hope you found this lesson on drawing a dragon the easy way helpful. Share, comment and like so others can find this drawing lesson.
