STEP 1. Start this first drawing step by making the guidelines and shapes for the frame of the dragon. Start with the shape of her small circle head and then add the slightly curved antler and snout lines. You will then add an eye line as well. Next draw a long curled horizontal line for the snake like body. Once that is done you can then draw out the outlined shape of the front and hind legs as shown.   STEP 2. Now in this step you will be drawing out the jaw part of the dragons mouth as well as the razor like mouth lining as seen here. Once that is complete you will draw out the shapes of the horns and then thicken the body lining so that you have a full looking Japanese dragon. Start sketching out the feet and claws as well as more of the legs.   STEP 3. As you can see once you are done with step three your purple Japanese dragon will look more dragony. Start this step by adding some detail on the forehead of the dragons head and then draw out the shape of her ear. You will then give this pretty dragon a mustache line and a slithering tongue. Draw out the front of the chest as well as some claws or nails. Detail and define the body by adding some arched lines and then draw out more of the tail and tail hair.   STEP 4. Well you have finally made it to your last drawing step and here you will draw out the fiery looking hair that starts in back of the horns and flows all the way down the back and ends above the hind leg. You will sketch in the rest of the tail hair and add all the scales piece by piece as shown to you here. You can then erase all the guidelines and shapes that you drew in step one.   STEP 5. Once you are complete your dragon should look like this. All you have to do now is color her in to your suiting. That is it, you are done.
