How to Draw an Electric Dragon

Artist: Dawn / September 20, 2012

Step 1.

Let us begin by making some of the basic guides, shapes and lines to create a workable frame for our new dragon drawing. You will need to make the shape for the head, then draw the curved neck guide and attach it to the torso shape. Next, draw out an   

Step 2.

We will now begin sketching out the face and or sturcture of the dragons snout, head, and horns. The brow for the eyes also need to be drawn in. Make sure the muzzle is drawn with lots of sharp points.

Step 3.

Next, draw the thickness of the neck, then draw in the dragon's shoulder as well as the first arm. Draw the clawed talon like so, and add some detailing to the part of the body you just sketched out. Also, draw in some of the stomach and chest.

Step 4.

Draw out the back lining to form the back end of the dragon's body like so, then start sketching out the hind leg and foot which should be bigger than the front claws, hands, or talons. Draw in the other arm, then add a little more detailing to the r   

Step 5.

Draw out the other leg which includes the thigh, foreleg, and foot. Next, finish off the body by drawing out the long bolt shaped tail like you see here. You should also sketch out the detailing for the crotch area too.

Step 6.

We will now focus on getting the wings drawn out. Notice that the wings have a rawness to them. The are large, and the tips are spaced pretty good for maximum flight and speed. Draw in the clawed tips, then add some detailing so they come out looking   

Step 7.

All you have to do now is sketch in all the detailing that makes the dragon stand out like the sharp frills on the head, neck, back and tail, then sketch in the face as well as the tongue, and horn definition. You will also need to define the wings.    

Step 8.

Here is what the finished drawing looks like as line art. Now you can have even more fun coloring it in. Look below for the full colored image of this electric dragon.

Step 9.

Here it is, the whole image colored in. I love the colors because they capture the very essence of all the energy that this dragon has.

Description: IT'S ELECTRIC! Here is another dragon lesson that will definitely have you guys screaming for cover. In this tutorial we will be learning the task to drawing a really cool electric style dragon. I began sketching out the concept for this dragon during a Livestream session a couple days ago. I was getting some positive feedback so because of this, I decided to turn the sketch into a full fledged tutorial. I wanted the colors to really show the surge of energy that this dragon has. The force of the bolt the is coming out of the mouth and the size of the body really captures the energy I was trying to convey. As far as difficulty goes? Well, I wouldn't say that it's going to be extremely hard, I would just say that there will definitely be some bumps in the road for the novice artist. On the other hand, if you have been drawing for a while and you know how to tackle a dragon drawing, then this lesson on drawing an electric dragon shouldn't be too bad. Either way I would like to hear what you think. Maybe there are some things I can improve on as far as breaking down a dragon drawing lesson goes. I guess that's it. I will be back tomorrow with some more drawing fun so make sure you come back around these parts. I hope you enjoyed, or are still enjoying your day of begin artistic. Peace out people!
