STEP 1. Step one is always easy and simple. What you are going to do is draw out the guidelines and circle shapes to help you through the whole drawing and sketching process. Draw a big oblong circle shape for the head. Then draw another circle in the shape of a sideways egg fro the frame of the snout. After that draw in two pointed shapes on top of the head for the ears and the the lining for the twig looking horns. Draw a thick wavy shape for the frame work of the beard, and draw in the left over shapes that reside in the face.   STEP 2. In this step detail the horns a whole lot better by actually shaping them. After that you can detail and add definition to the face by drawing out the mouth nostril holes, eyes, and the shaping and definition on the face. After you complete this step you know what to do right? Of course move to the next step which would be step 3.   STEP 3. Okay in this step what you have to do is sketch out the sharp pointy looking teeth. The two teeth at the top, you know the big fangs, well they have to be curved outward away from the mouth. After you sketch all those teeth in draw the mustache that appears to be flying out of his nose. Then sketch in the wrinkles that lay right on top of his snout. The traditional Chinese dragon head always has a thick set of whiskers that are usually attached to the top of the nose tip. Detail the face a bit more and move down to step 4.   STEP 4. And finally this step will show you how to position the hair that is all over the Chinese dragon head. Draw in two little dots for the pupils, and sketch in all the hair detailing in the beard, mustache, and head. This will take you a few minutes to complete but it is awesome looking when it is done. After you complete the detailing on the Chinese dragon head you can erase all the guidelines and circle shapes that you drew back in step 1.   STEP 5. And this is what your finished dragon head should look like when you are done. See now was that so hard? Well of course it wasn't. The only thing left to do is color him in and add your own special flavor. That concludes this tutorial on how to draw a tradition Chinese dragon head.   Step 1. Step 2. Step 3. Step 4. Step 5.
