How to Draw a Hydra, Baby Hydra

Artist: Dawn / June 25, 2012

Step 1.

Start the first step by making three shapes. Two for the heads and one for the body. You will need to draw a connecting line as well.

Step 2.

Sketch out the actual shape of the hydra's head and snout like so, then draw out the S style shaped neck. Once that is done you can move to step three.

Step 3.

Draw the second head the same exact way like you did the first. Once that is done you will draw the crest of the chest, and then draw the back end of the body as well as the tail. Don't forget to draw the thigh and foot.

Step 4.

Here is another step that will bring you one step closer to the finished result. All you have to do now is draw out the other head, then the chest, then the other foot. Sketch in the nice detailing lines on the heads and separating lines for the ches   

Step 5.

For the last step, make the eyes on each face, then draw the serrated lines which will form the mouths. You will finish the faces off by drawing the nostrils, then draw the scales on the chests. Lastly, make the spikes down the back as well as some s   

Step 6.

Here is what your baby hydra comes out looking like when you are all done. Now you can go ahead and color in this Mythology creature.

Description: Okay, now that I have submitted the Goth style dragon, how about we learn "how to draw a baby hydra", step by step. Who says that you can or should only make baby versions of animals or people? To me fantasy creatures and figures are just as awesome, if not better to make into baby forms. The Hydra that you will be getting a lesson on still retains its mean streak as it stands there in an adorable baby form. The tiny heads faces and body makes this creature from lore more huggable than scary. I think you will agree when I say that drawing a baby hydra is ultra-fun, and super easy. I have so many different ideas that I want to tackle in a new baby concept. Who knows, maybe I will make some other creatures in this very same form. Anyways, I hope you enjoy this version of a fantasy hydra. I will be back in a bit with more drawing fun so stay tuned in. Adios people and peace out!
