STEP 1. To start, we will need to draw a shape that is circular for the dragon's body pose of motion. Begin with one single stroke that is capped with a head shape and sectioned off with an oblong shape for the moon dragon's body.   STEP 2. For step two, you will begin sketching out the dragon's head from a profile state. Start with jaw, and then continue on from there by incorporating the snout, face, and horns.   STEP 3. Now you will sketch in the detailing to the face like the rippled scale lines that flow down the horns and face. When that is done draw in the eye, nostrils, then carefully sketch in the frills behind the jawline and for the beard.   STEP 4. Now that the head is complete, you can proceed on with drawing the first part of the body which starts with the long neck, then turns into the chest and mid section. Draw the front legs like so, and be sure to sketch in the detailing for the legs as well.   STEP 5. Instead of drawing the body I thought it would be cool to draw out the wings in a way that covers the body completely in a cloak like fashion. The edges of the wings should be drawn with wispy cloud like design, or you can choose to go with a style that you think would look better. Add detailing throughout, then proceed to step six.   STEP 6. Only one more drawing step after this one guys so hang in there. What you will need to do now is draw out the rest of the body which is the bottom section and the tail. Draw the back leg in a relaxed manner, then sketch out the talons. Add detailing to the foot like so, then you are done here.   STEP 7. Lastly, draw out the other wing that will only be visible because it is wrapping on the body like you see here. Make the edges the same way you did previously, then sketch in the final definitions and detailing all over the body where needed. Erase the mistakes that you might have made along the way.   STEP 8. When you are done your moon dragon should come out looking like the one you see here. Now all you have to do is color it in and add the moon in the background so that it cups it perfectly.   STEP 9. Here is what the entire image looks like all colored in and with a background. I hope you liked this lesson, because I know I loved drawing this dragon.   Step 1. Step 2. Step 3. Step 4. Step 5.
