Draw Dragon Motivation
After I created my first dragon, I was eager to try again and to see if I can draw it every day for a whole week. As a result, I created a goal to see if I can render this thing without having to always refer to my reference. However, after taking a slight break, I noticed that I started forgetting how to draw it.
Next, so how do you make it?
First of all, to draw a dragon, you start with a basic circle (head) and a long loose line. Then, you create large two large circles towards the middle of the body. However, don’t focus on the details; try to stick with simple shapes at the start. Before, I write out a whole paragraph, which I almost did. Therefore, I decided it was best if I make a list.
Here are 6 steps to consider
- To draw a dragon, start by creating two large intersecting circles.
- Connect lines from the neck all the way around to the tail
- Tail end will taper (Triangle)
- Chest usually sticks out more
- Sketch in the nose/mouth
- Shape it like a trapezoid
- Draw a single wing stem from a circle (Sketch 3)
- I broke it down in six segments or lines
- Later on, you can draw out the longer fingers
- They should be 2-3 segments long
- The tips of the wing should stretch out to the hip (sketch 6.2)
- Draw dragon Legs
- start by creating small circles (design 5) for knee caps
- Try to position circles away from each other
- Create the hands as circles first to get an idea of proportion
- Then draw in a few fingers
- Use squares for the fingers
- Try not to focus too much on the detail early on (sketch 8)
- Add the eye, mouth, and horns
- I generally draw the eye using a pentagon shape, then add detail later
That’s it for now
