Description: I thought it was time for another dragon tutorial and because of that I drew my heart out with this next lesson I am about to submit. My first lesson of the day will be on "how to draw a red dragon step by step". If you look in the dragon category you will see that there is already a tutorial on a red dragon and that lesson is old and sort of immature. This new dragon is bold, powerful, epic, and intriguing. I had a lot of fun drawing out this new version of a red dragon. So much fun in fact, I started sketching the dragon early this morning and didn’t get done until later in the afternoon around three. The hardest part about drawing this red dragon was all the detailing and shading. I also had to work on drawing dragon bodies better than I did on the past because a lot of the dragon I used to draw ha sunken in stomachs. To me drawing dragon talons, dragon legs and dragon head and mouths are some of the easiest things for me to do. My biggest problem in the past was the mid part of the dragon body. So after hard work and determination, I think I have drawn one of the best looking dragons in a long time. I put this red dragon in the advanced section because it will not be easy to draw. You will have to follow the steps verbatim if you want your red dragon come out looking like or similar to the one you will be learning from. Anyways, let me get back to submitting more lessons and I will let you get to tackle this tutorial on "how to draw a red dragon step by step". Stay tuned for more drawing fun people.
