Description: Here is yet another drawing tutorial coming your way and it is extremely colorful and bold. I wanted to draw another dragon because I purchased these cool dragon statues last week, and for some reason I just had the urge to draw a slightly modified replica of the dragon that is sitting on my desk right now. I call this creation “mighty dragon” because he looks so bold and brave. I love the coloring I did with his wings mixing a combination of red and yellow hues. The chest is a dark ice blue and his fire breathe is like a blue mist. I really did have a fun time with this tutorial, hopefully you will have fun as well when you learn “how to make a dragon step by step” I know it’s weird reading the words “how to make” but sometimes I get tired of saying the same old thing over and over again. Anyway, I have to go for now but you guys can sit and watch me draw live for you all. Peace out and have fun drawing everyday!
