Step 1.

This is really not a step but a diagram. This diagram breaks down the anatomy of the dragon talon in detail. This will help you understand the development and positioning of the dragons talon. In the first view you will look at the talon on a 3/4 ang   

Step 2.

Now start this first step with the shape drawing of the dragon arm and talon. First draw a small circle for the shoulder and then add a straight line on an angle. Make a smaller circle for the elbow and then another slanted line for the forearm. You    

Step 3.

Now in this step you will first draw out the shaping of the upper part of the dragons arm and then draw the shape of the forearm. On the hand draw four lines for the fingers and then add the circles for the knuckles as shown. You will then move to th   

Step 4.

What you will be doing in this step is first draw the shoulder lines and detail the elbow. Then you will start sketching in the lines for the talons as shown. Move your attention the right and draw the shape of the upper thigh and then detail the sha   

Step 5.

The first thing you will do here is start sketching out the talons of the dragons hand and detail them as well. The claws should look thick and sort of long. After you do the you can start sketching in the muscle detailing on the upper thigh and then   

Step 6.

In this last drawing step you will draw in more of the dragons shoulder as well as add the detailing muscle definition on the upper part and lower part of the arm. You will also detail the talons as you can see here. You will also need to detail the    

Step 7.

At the end your dragon legs and talons should come out looking like this. All you have to do now is color them in your very own color or use the color I picked out. That is it you are done. That will end this tutorial on how to draw Dragon Legs Arms

Description: In this next and last tutorial for the day I will be showing you a new way to draw dragon legs arms and talons. I have submitted tutorials in the past on this exact subject, but since the previous drawings were done when I was fairly young, I figured “hey it’s time for a new one”. When drawing dragon legs and hands you have to remember that these enormous beasts are cousins to the reptile family. That means they are very much shaped and created like dinosaurs, snakes, lizards and birds. Dragons have many traits of all those species combined in one package. When I draw dragons, I usually like to create a new way to draw the legs and the positioning of the arms. Their legs and feet are very massive and muscular. This is because that body part has to hold up this beast, so you can imagine how much muscle mass and tissue a dragon leg must need to do such a thing. The foot of a dragon has to not only hold up the body, but they have to keep the dragon balanced and level at the same time. The claws on their feet are thick, hard and incredibly strong. They are used to clamp on trees, grab food from the ground, clamp on mountain tops as they hold themselves high, and to scratch themselves. Their hides are intensely strong and hard almost like a thick leather times 20. The dragon arms and hands or talons are also very masculine as well. They use these limbs to battle with, clutch onto food as they eat; keep balance as they fly, and other useful techniques that are only known by the incredible dragon anatomy. The claws of the hands are also very strong and thick. The only difference from the claws on the feet to the claws on the hands is that the feet needs to have more strength because they travel on the rough temperature changing ground as well as crawl, climb, and scratch their nails a whole lot more than they would with their hands. In this tutorial I will show you how to draw dragon legs, arms and talons. You will easily be able to accomplish this drawing because I break down the steps in a simple way for you to understand. The first step of the tutorial is just your basic break down on the claws or talons. I know you dragon lovers will be clicking on this tutorial all day. I will be back tomorrow with more fun for you all. Peace out people and remember, stay creative.
