Description: This lesson is for all of you artists out there both new and seasoned who love drawing dragons of all sorts. Today, I will be teaching you how to draw an epic dragon, step by step. The drawing of this epic dragon is one of my best pieces I have drawn as far as dragons go and I know that many of you will tackle drawing his green giant of a dragon asap. I especially love the coloring I did on this piece. The fire and all the surrounding clouds really sets the stage for how powerful and massive this dragon is. I also added a dragon rider to show the scale of how big the green dragon is. I do hope you enjoy drawing this epic green dragon as much as I did making it.
