STEP 1. Begin by drawing a total of three shapes, one for the head, another for the torso or chest, and then the end one for the back or butt end. Connect the first two with a neck guide.   STEP 2. You will immediately start taking your time as you draw out the head, muzzle and jaw of this earth dragon. You'll want to emphasize roots of this creature, mainly because it's portraying an earthy feel. Make sure you vary the sizes of each root.   STEP 3. Next, we will flesh out the facial features, and the horns which are branches with sparse leaves. It's best to emphasize various chains of leaf area so it'll vary the drawing, making it more appealing. My favorite part was drawing the back of the dragon, the branches of entangled roots and a separate tree, making the Earth dragon seem as if it was submerged into the ground...now wouldn't THAT be a cool tut ;)   STEP 4. Let's move onto the torso area, probably a difficult part because of all the details that's cluttered into a confined space. Let's work on the chest first before we scatter to the arm, which is also similar to a tree form. Make sure you create each boulder in various sizes, to vary your drawing. I cannot stress enough the importance of variation since it really brings out the feel in a drawing. Try sketching these lines quickly so you'll have a better chance getting an accurate line.   STEP 5. To finish off the torso, add the other arm, keeping in mind it's comparison to the first one.   STEP 6. Let's finish off the back part of the body so this dragon will be standing normally ;) Create the leg first before you move onto any interior details, you don't want to draw details first then exterior work, it'll end up a mess! Once you've done that, add the tail and more boulders or rocks. Notice how I have pieces of rock shifting off the body, creating an illusion that this creature is moving.   STEP 7. Lastly, we will draw the tree leaves, extra branches, and the wing to complete this piece! Keep the lineart for the tree details thinner than the rest, so it will add variety to the drawing overall. The wings should also resemble wood like feel as well.   STEP 8. With essential cleanup and careful observation, you should have something similar to this. Now, if you want to have similar lines, make sure you ink your drawing either digitally, or traditionally (inking pens). I really hope you've got a kick outta this lesson, as much as I had making it. Thank you all so much for viewing!   Step 1. Step 2. Step 3. Step 4. Step 5. Step 6. Step 7. Step 8.
