STEP 1. You will take your time as you draw out the guide shapes, and guidelines for both the dragon and the rider. The wing span is very wide and bold, but the rider is very small. I wanted to show how massive the dragon was by drawing the rider small.   STEP 2. Begin the first step by drawing out the head of the dragon as well as the face and neck. As you can see the neck is pointed scaled style neck.   STEP 3. Now you will begin drawing the rider. Start with her small head, sketch out the small body, then draw the shape of her legs. You will also draw the long wavy ponytail, and then draw in the cloth from her clothing. Also, you will need to draw the reigns that she is holding on to as well as the harness she is sitting on.   STEP 4. For this fourth step, you will be tackling the shape of the body. Start with the chest, back and arm. You will define the shape of the body under the wing arm and along the back. Once that is done you can add V lined scaled on the stomach and chest of the dragon.   STEP 5. You will simply draw out the muscular bump to create the shoulder for your massive dragon. As with the head and neck, the shoulder is also made up of those layered pointed scales instead of the typical rounded scales you normally see on dragons. Add definition to the arm and shoulder, then proceed to step six.   STEP 6. Here you will begin the drawing process for the large massive wing. Start with the thumb and then draw the long bones that act as fingers for the wings. Draw that old ripped lining for your dragon, I did the wings in this style because I wanted to show that the dragon is aged or an older dragon. Add the dimpling and detailing between the finger sections for the wings.   STEP 7. In this step you will sketch out the rest of the dragon's body. Start with the back end, pelvic area and tail. Sketch out the strong muscular legs and talons or feet. Add detailing to the thighs, and then draw in the rest of the pointed scales. The tip of the tail is an arrow tip.   STEP 8. For the last step all you have to do is sketch in the other dragon wing and add all of the detailing and definition needed to complete the dragon rider. Once you are happy with the results, you can begin erasing all the mistakes.   STEP 9. Here is how the dragon looks when done. As you can see this is the shaded image from the tutorial. I hope you had fun with drawing a dragon rider.   Step 1. Step 2. Step 3. Step 4. Step 5. Step 6. Step 7. Step 8. Step 9.
