STEP 1. Like with all my dragon tutorials, you will start this lesson on how to draw a dragon by drawing out some circles at first and then the guidelines. Make a circle for the dragon head and then add the facial guidelines. You will then make a line for the long neck and then attach it to another circle for the top part of the dragon body. You will then draw another circle for the hind end of the dragon and then you can start making the limb guidelines as well as the guidelines for the tail and wings.   STEP 2. You will now start sketching out the shape of the dragon's head, snout, and mouth. Once that is complete you can start sketching out the shape, style and form of the long thick looking hair.   STEP 3. Continue sketching out the hair and or beard under the dragons chin as you see here and then start drawing the sharp teeth and the tongue. Once the mouth is complete you can start drawing out the front of the dragon's body starting with the chest.   STEP 4. You will focus on the rest of the dragon's body in this step. The first thing I want you to do is sketch out the lining of the wings and then begin your drawing for the arm shapes, leg shapes and then the front and back claws. Be sure to sketch some muscle definition as well.   STEP 5. Finish off the shaping of the dragon wings and then draw the tips of the wings with single claw nails. Once that is done you can finish the shaping of the arms and hands. Sketch out the shape of the dragon tail and then add some stretch lines on the wings where it attaches to the tail.   STEP 6. You will continue to sketch in detail and definition to the dragon's body as well as the wings. Draw out the dragon's wing arm and then the hind legs need to be drawn in as well. Add muscle definition and skin detailing. Remember dragons are reptiles so you have to make sure you detail their skin to convey that.   STEP 7. This is your last drawing step and all you have to do now is sketch out the rest of the dragons limbs, feet, claws and add more detailing to the wings and tail. Erase all the guidelines that you drew in step one.   STEP 8. Step 8 Here is what your finished line art of your new dragon drawing. Once you have come to this stage you will start choosing your colors to shade in your newly drawn dragon in with. I hope you guys liked learning "how to draw a flying dragon" step by step.   Step 1.
