How to Draw Chibi Spyro

Artist: Dawn / July 15, 2011

Step 1.

Begin with a medium sized circle for the head, and then draw a connecting line for the neck and attach it to an oval shape for his body.

Step 2.

Okay guys lets start sketching out the shape and structure of Spyro's face and head. When this is done draw the arched brows, and then draw in his snout or nose. Make a smile and be sure to draw in the bottom jaw.

Step 3.

Using the face guide, draw out the large shapes of his eyes which are sort of like half shaped windows. Draw the overlapping lines from the brows, and then add the nose holes, and crease between the eyes.

Step 4.

The only thing you have to do here is draw in the eyeballs, and then draw out the two little teeth that overlap his bottom jaw.

Step 5.

Your chibi Spyro is coming along nicely. The only thing you have to do here is draw out the horns and then draw in the frill between the horns like so. Before leaving this step draw in the detailing lines on the horns and then on the frill on his hea   

Step 6.

You will now start chibi Spyro's body starting with his neck. Incorporate the same lining to form his back, and tail, and then draw out the front legs and talons and or feet.

Step 7.

Continue to draw out Spyro's body starting with the stomach and then move onto the legs and back feet. Draw out the tail and then add a spear or arrow tip to the tail. For the last step draw out the small chibi style wings.

Step 8.

Draw out the underbelly that extends to the neck. Add the scale lines like so, and then draw out the frills for the back of the tail. Add detailing to the wings and then start erasing the lines and shapes that you drew in step one.

Step 9.

Here is the adorable Spyro in chibi form. Now you can have even more fun coloring him in. I hope you liked leaning how to draw chibi Spyro.

Description: I guess I can quickly submit a chibi version of Spyro the dragon for my next submission. This tutorial was actually supposed to go up yesterday but I got side tracked and forgot about it. Spyro is one of the first gaming characters that I feel in love with and enjoyed. One of the things I like about Spyro is his cute little wobble that he has when he walks about, and the way he tries to fly. This tutorial was an idea from another request, and think that he came out awesome. Although I do have to say that learning "how to draw chibi Spyro", step by step is not all that different from drawing Spyro in regular form. There is a total of seven steps, but each one is going to be easy to follow. Another great thing about drawing chibi Spyro is the exciting end, he is going to be a blast to color in for sure. I don’t really have much more to say because I already have a tutorial on his regular form. If you would like to view that lesson, just go to the video game section under the Pop Culture category and scroll down until you find this purple colored dragon. Okay guys I have to fly out of here because there is a lot more work in store for me so adios amigos and enjoy the drawing day!
