STEP 1. There are countless styles and types to draw your dragon. Furry dragons symbolize peace, prosperity and intelligence. If you're familiar with the dragon from the movie "Eragon", you'll understand what I'm talking about. Saphira is also a blue color which symbolizes a relaxed and friendly creature. Here I show you two styles of dragons with different point of views.   STEP 2. "The ridges of the eyes are important to create a fierce looking dragon." The deeper the creases under the eyes, the more it looks to be an elder. Elders have a mysterious presence which is a great possibility for you to explore.   STEP 3. When you're viewing a dragon at a slight 3/4 pose, you should be able to see teeth in the background of the foreground teeth. This will cake on more realism.   STEP 4. Most dragons have a ridge around the nostril.   STEP 5. Onwards to the steps, artist. To begin this drawing, you must first shape up the guide work. It's important to have guidelines to enable you to draw accurately. Observe the image and draw what you see.   STEP 6. Start shaping up the snout and brow. I always start drawing this part of the dragon. Consider drawing from the circle and not the guideline that shapes the mouth.   STEP 7. Move on by drawing the arched eyebrow and the upper jaw. The sharp and jagged edges of the jaw will yield a scary and fierce looking creature. This doesn't apply to dragons who have different obstacles. You may have a beast that has a jagged jaw and is friendly. Mix and match and see what you result to.   STEP 8. Start implicating the horns inside the spouts. Never have horns that's fleshed with the skin, it will create an unreal and bitter effect. Add the cheekbone and tongue to get started on the teeth and cheekbone horns. Finish off the bottom jaw.   STEP 9. Start adding the gums and the inside lower jaw. By showing gums and teeth, it will create an illusion of a fierce dragon ready to strike. Get to sketching the neck and the cheekbone horns.   STEP 10. Finish off this step by adding teeth and details. It's important to have an underbelly for your dragon. They don't have the same color skin all around. Plating for the underbelly would suit this creature perfectly.   STEP 11. Here stands the line art before you. If your drawing doesn't result as a duplicate of this, then it's perfectly fine. It would be a great idea to take your time on drawing this majestic creature as it becomes time consuming. Start forming your own style on types of dragons. Explore other artists and see how they progress with their creatures. I hope this tutorial helped you, I had fun creating it.
