Step 1.

In this step you should draw out the basic frame for your feathered serpent. You can sort of see where the body, wings, and arms will start to form.

Step 2.

In this step it actually starts to look more like a dragon. These lines should be drawn lightly, as they are just outlines so you know where to put the feathers. You will also add belly scales and his eye and arms.

Step 3.

This is the llloooonnnngggg step! You need to put all of his feathers on, or how else is he a feathered serpent? He has feathers all down most of his back, on his snout, on his tail,and of course on his wings. Also add a few more details, like the hi   

Step 4.

This step is also long. You need to detail all of his feathers. Add a little detail on the little feathers, and extra detail on the BIG feathers. Also add his teeth, so he can eat! You will also add a piece of beaded cloth on his tail, to make him lo   

Step 5.

There you go! A lovely drawing of Quetzalcoatl. He sure is a cute dragon huh? I bet you had a good time. Wasn't as hard as it looks to draw a dragon was it? Bye!

Description: Yes, It may not be as wonderful and colorful as dragon king's tutorials, but as you may already know, I no longer have Photoshop, and Paint is only good for (mediocre) cel shading. So it is a pencil drawing. Anyway, Quetzalcoatl (KET-zuhl-co-AH-tuhl)was an Olmec/Aztec god that was a feathered serpent, sometimes portrayed as a long feathery snake, sometimes as a man. You often see him in Aztec art and in statues. If you go to Mexico, you can see these amazing carvings, paintings, and temples. This tutorial is how to draw a modern version of Quetzalcoatl. If you want, you can color him. Most of the time Quetzalcoatl had blue and green iridescent feathers that are very pretty. I hope you have fun! If you notice, the steps are arranged in the colors of the rainbow.
