Step 1. What do you get when you take anime eyes and put them on a dragon? Why, you get an anime dragon of course! Don’t believe me? Then see for yourselves!

Step 10. They look almost identical don’t they! See how the shading on the dragon below compensates for its lack of detail when compared to the dragon above! It’s THAT easy! Don’t worry about getting the shading perfect, just try to bring out the dimensions of your dragon using this method! Well, there you have it! Just remember those three simple rules and you’ll be drawing Anime Dragons with ease! I know that there’s probably much more to it than just what is stated above! This is just the most important rules in my opinion, because it works for me! Until Next time! ~KenshinEien

Step 2. Now in this next step you will be focusing on sketching out the shape of his head and face as well as the body and wings. But first lets start by shaping out the head and then add the horns as shown. Next draw an opening in the middle of the mouth so that you can give him an open smile. Make a line for his eyes and then a dash for the nose hole. Next draw out the lining for the back of his neck and arm on the right and then you can begin shaping out the dragon wing. His wings are only partially open. You will now start shaping out the anime dragons body to give him definition. After you do that it is time to start drawing the lining for the left wing and both legs and right foot including the claws.

Step 5. Now look at these sets of eyes and you’ll begin to see what I mean. You see! The thing that makes an anime dragon look like an ANIME DRAGON (or any Anime character look like Anime for that matter) is the eyes mostly!

Step 4. This step is very simple indeed because all you will have to do is draw in the stripes on the belly and fining the thickness of the tail. Detail the thigh and calf of the right leg and then begin drawing out the left foot. Finish the sketching of his right wing and detail it a bit.

Step 1. Okay start this first step by drawing out the guidelines and shapes to make a simple frame for the anime dragon. Start by drawing a small circle for the head and then add the boxed shape for the snout. Next draw an egg shape for the torso and then another half egg shape for the pelvic area of the anime dragon. From those shapes you just drew you can now add the guidelines for the arms, legs, wings, tail, and then the smaller shapes for the feet and hands.

Step 4. Now draw and re-draw each type of eye over top of your dragon! Each time take a good look at the results. Hmmm… Those aren’t bad looking eyes right, BUT do they really make this dragon look like an Anime dragon? The answer is NO! Sure, example 4 could probably pass as an Anime dragon, but it’d be just barely.

Step 6. There are a few other factors that determine Anime worthiness as well, such as the attention to detail (or the lack there of), depending on how you look at it! I know what you’re thinking… “He forgot about their facial structure!” Right? Not at all! That mostly applies to HUMAN looking characters and USUALLY doesn’t apply to animals. They can Look highly detailed or fairly simple in design.

Step 3. What you will start doing in this third step is giving this anime dragon an anime looking eye. Next add some teeth and then draw a long curved line starting from under the jaw and ending at the top of the thigh. This is the separation line for the belly. Next finish drawing the right arm and hand including the claws. Detail the bottom part of the right wing and then begin the lining for the tail. Detail the left thigh and then sketch out the clawed hand. You will end this step by drawing the lining for the tip of the left wing and detail the right claws or toes.

Step 5. This is the last drawing step and all you will do is detail the left wing and the left foot including the toes. When you are done you can start cleaning up your drawing by erasing the guidelines and shapes that you drew in step one.

Step 7. Simplicity and Cell Shading are key ingredients to consider using when trying to re-create that Anime look, but using less lines to make images look detailed can be difficult! Mastering this technique will save you lots of time, especially when you don’t have a lot of it on your hands!

Step 3. All done? Great! Now take a look at these eye sets! Some look much like what you’d see in your average Anime/Manga, while others not so much, but why is that? What could possibly be wrong with them? Let’s take a look!

Step 2. Just follow these simple steps to make your very own Anime Dragon, but don’t draw in the eyes yet. I’ll explain it in a little more detail when your done!

Step 6. This is what your anime dragon should look like when you are completely done. All you have to do is color him in any way you want using any color you want. You have just completed this tutorial on how to draw an anime dragon step by step.

Hello artist, I am back with another tutorial for you all. Today I am going to show you how to draw an anime dragon. Why an anime dragon you ask? Well for one, I have a bunch of different kinds of dragons uploaded that I drew over the course of time. I was looking through them and I said to myself “hey, I don’t have a tutorial on an anime dragon”. So here I am today, this tutorial is going to be super duper simple. Anime dragons to me are kind of supposed to look like they belong in anime cartoons like DragonBall Z or Inuyasha. Anime dragons are almost really cartoony looking and have very simple parts to draw. When drawing an anime dragon you will also learn how to draw dragon legs, dragon arms, dragon talons, dragon tail, dragon wings, dragon eyes, dragon tongue and many more parts of the dragon anatomy. The reason why anime dragons are so simple to draw is because they are bulky, less detailed, and more round. And everybody knows that drawing round circles is an incredibly simple thing to do. Dragons have been a part of our history for centuries and there are many tales and myths about the dragon. Not only are there myths and tales, but there are also many different kinds of dragons that have been created over time by many different people including myself. Over time I have drawn and created so many different dragons and almost all of them have unusual names and history behind them. For instance, if you go into the dragons category and scroll down you will notice that there are several dragons that are very weird looking. I have a gargoyle dragon, a snake dragon, green thunder dragon, then I have a shade dragon, a mercenary dragon and tons more. These fantasy creatures can sometimes be difficult to draw if you are trying to draw a detailed complex dragon when you are just a novice. When you are a novice artist it is good to tackle intermediate tutorials at least three times a week just to get some kind of detailing experience. The other four days that are left in the week you should really try and draw from tutorials that are in your level because this way here you can get good at drawing from a novice level. When you are a novice artist you are basically learning how to draw simple shapes. This includes the head, arms, body, legs, hands and feet. When drawing a human face you should take your time because it can get very frustrating. It took me a while before I could draw a human face at an intermediate level. I just practice every day and once a month I buy books on how to draw different things that I want to get better at. In this tutorial I will show you how to draw an anime dragon step by step. The instructions are easy and the steps are even simpler. Remember tackle this tutorial with patience because you should always take your time when you are learning something new or trying to get better at something you already know. I will be back in a bit with more tutorials that you can learn from and enjoy.

Step 9. Try to create your characters with as little defining lines as what is needed! The shading will compensate for any line art details you leave out, just keep it Simple and Clean! Right now you can see a big difference between the dragon above and the one below, so now we’ll give it a little shading to mask the details!



Start out lightly and build by there, After i start pulling , I plan and check out using loose lines, plus avoid committing too soon together with hard, dark lines, claims Chiu. As I improve my lines will alter , so checking and rechecking my work is important . I darken my traces and add details from the end. I do not concentrate on one area intended for too long in order to avoid overdrawing. Begin with an underdrawing, Artist Tim von Reuden likes to start along with a digital underdrawing of which he prints at one particular per cent Opacity. Earlier mentioned , you will see the underdrawing associated with his sketch of some sort of woman holding a staff members . He explains, I enjoy to keep it mild so that it provides a foundation rather than a new final image.

Use contrasting concepts, 1 drawing technique Healy makes use of in her work will be to use contrasting ideas within a piece involving work, for instance, juxtaposing beauty and ugliness. Items use the beauty regarding colours, flowers, the real softness of skin or curly hair , as well as the female form. I will also tend to employ something which is opposite in order to all of that, like bones, insects, sharp tooth , or anything that might provide discomfort to the particular viewer, she elaborates. `Somehow this provides an appealing principle to a piece. Particularly when the `ugly` parts substantially harder to spot from first. To me this can be a very stark representation regarding what life is just like

Categorise the fabric, Von Reuden points out ways to add value and even shading to create more layers of depth and even weight. He admits that will , when drawing and re-creating fabric, the types regarding wrinkles created can just about all be placed under 3 separate categories: hanging/relaxed, stretched/tension, and scrunched/compressed. Hanging material tends to be shed and have a moving appearance. Stretched fabric makes long lines, usually together with a point of assistance . Compressed fabrics bunch in to each other, creating scrunched-looking areas.

Mix up covering techniques, There are a lot of different pencil pulling techniques relating to shade providing . Chiu uses two major approaches. The first will be with all the traces going in the similar direction. `This makes our shading appear more natural, and helps my information pop out from typically the lines I`m using regarding shading, he explains. The particular second method involves functioning in patches of shade providing , to help define condition . Patches of lines avoid the form, which support keep things in viewpoint , he says. This system is in addition great for backgrounds plus creating texture.

Make use of the right eraser, There happen to be a few several types of eraser, and each is appropriate to various things. You`ll definitely need a kneaded eraser. This has the putty-like consistency (it`s oftentimes known as putty eraser), and you knead this before and after make use of . A kneaded eraser will be best for lightly finding up the coloured pen binding off the document . This works wonders any time correcting mistakes, or when you`re deliberately lifting coloring from an area including the eyes, says Healy. The gum eraser has some sort of more solid consistency, plus is better if you`re trying to fully clear off a coloured-in area. Des Reuden continues: I highly believe in letting instinct take over in typically the creation process so I actually work with the underdrawing more as a guide . This implies the final outcome varies.

Find the right report texture, The surface structure you`re working on may make a big distinction towards the effects you could create. This really is referred in order to as the grain or perhaps `tooth` of the document . A rough tooth is usually more visible, and typically the ridges will grip the particular colour from your pencils. Having a smooth tooth, the particular ridges are very good , and there`s less grasp . Healy finds this sort of paper provides a good easier surface for mixing coloured pencils, although your woman warns that it`s likewise easy to operate the coloring off the surface.

Attempt different approaches to traces , The following drawing technique fears line weight. As properly as demarcating different things , lines can help stress shadows. Thicker lines may fade and disappear in the shadows, which can aid convey the 3D kind , explains Chiu.

Use a stump intended for soft blending, How an individual blend your work may have a big influence on the final result. Intended for a soft blended result , try a blending stump. After each light part , I very gently merge the coloured pencils using the stump, says US-based artist Jennifer Healy. May push too hard or even the colour will keep , making it more challenging in order to softly blend. I duplicate this process as usually when i need. After a lot of layers it produces some sort of very soft and sensitive look. This technique needs a little trial and problem , though. Healy warns of which if you blend also softly, the stump could pick up colour that will you`ve already layered around the paper.

Unify your colors , Having an uniform strategy to colour will assist provide cohesiveness to your function . It`s a good thought to make sure that will your artwork has unifying colours, says Healy. `This consists of a certain colour palette, mood plus a way of spreading these types of through the entire art part . In addition, she indicates creating a harmonious foundation by using tinted document or adding a history wash of colour (in paint). This will demonstrate through whatever you lie down on top of this , thus giving it a great appearance of cohesion. Any time I use coloured pencils, I`m fond of employing tinted paper produced by simply Kraft.

Guard your paper, This will be a valuable pencil attracting technique for beginners: place a piece of papers under me to steer clear of smudging your drawing although you`re working. It appears apparent , but it can end up being the downfall of the great piece of job ! Healy also prefers to be able to mount her paper in a board, attaching that using a layer regarding matte medium. This assists keep things neat, plus provides a great surface in order to work.

Short on time? This above, from character developer Bobby Chiu, runs by way of some pencil drawing connected with action. For extra in-depth suggestions about composition in order to how to capture light-weight and shadow, look into our own art techniques article. Or perhaps , for inspiration, have a look at this particular roundup of unbelievably genuine pencil drawings.

Touch up your skills with these kinds of pencil drawing techniques, with regard to both graphite and female pencils. These pencil sketching techniques from top musicians will allow you to take your pulling skills one stage additional , whether you`re using graphite pencil or coloured pencils. For many artists, pen drawing is the talent that introduced them in order to the art world, in addition to even if you`ve advanced to a different moderate , understanding how to bring with a pencil may help you transform your abilities elsewhere. These pencil pulling techniques cover anything from the particular basics of mark-making to be able to advanced processes to force you out of your own comfort zone. We`ll also provide advice on the equipment and materials you want to know, such because blending stumps, paper choices , and different erasers. When you`re a total newbie , or just want to be able to upgrade your kit, get a look at our own guide to the most effective pencils.

Create textile , Fabric can range through sleek and shiny in order to matte and dull. Precisely how you shade it may help sell the thought of the information you`re striving to depict. In this design , von Reuden is attempting in order to capture the golden folds up of material found throughout the original image. He or she began by outlining the particular shapes and blocking out and about aspects of shadow.

Know when should you cease , The majority of musicians can tinker with their particular work - even following they`ve signed their label . I can always locate something to change in case I look hard more than enough , so it can get difficult to inform when the piece is truly completed , says Chiu. However, be suspicious of overworking your part . `Eventually, I make the conscious decision to set my drawing away and even start something new, he or she continues. `That`s when We consider my drawing completed

Break free from your comfort zone, Although these pencil drawing approaches should help you recognize the essentials from the channel , sometimes you need to be able to toss the rules away of the window in order to find what works for an individual . There`s nothing wrong along with stepping outside of typically the box if it implies achieving the effect an individual want, says Healy. Learning from mistakes will occur when an individual step outside of of which box. But don`t become intimidated! The process will be entirely fun.

Draw on your individual experiences, Dip into your current experiences to add a particular layer of authenticity for your piece, suggests Healy. Therefore using something like the memory, feeling or aroma when making your work. Regarding example, the special experience you experienced when seated down with a buddy with a coffee shop, or even a memory of your the child years experience. You can become abstract or use hyperrealism. Anything you choose makes the particular piece unique to a person . I`ve found that individuals resonate with these items the most.

Make use of the appropriate grip, The first action is always to master how in order to hold a pencil effectively . Chiu recommends holding typically the pencil as you could a new piece of charcoal, and even taking advantage of the particular side of the business lead to draw, rather as compared to the point. This will help maintain the pencil sharper regarding longer. When covering significant areas, I shade together with my pencil perpendicular in order to the line I`m sketching to get wide, smooth lines, he adds. Intended for details, I hold our pencil parallel to the lines to get razor-sharp , narrow marks. The sole time I use the particular thing is when I`m working on intricate particulars

Beyond of which , different artists have diverse approaches to lines -- you need to get the style that`s best suited for you. I choose to use a specific outline in my art , whether it is using thin traces or bold outlines, ` says Healy. It can easily help pinpoint the audience`s eye to a selected area. In addition, it gives some sort of stylised look, if that will is what you happen to be hoping to achieve. Chiu, however, prefers a diverse approach. I try to be able to avoid outlining my images because this tends in order to make things look smooth and deadens the 3 DIMENSIONAL effect. Breaks and areas in my lines present form in the lamps and shadows.

Master blending together , Healy has a particular process for blending your ex coloured pencil work. The lady depends on an put together , to check the type is proper before assigning to coloured pencil (it`s much harder to clear off coloured-in areas than the outline). It also will help her plan where typically the highlights and shadows may fall. She then creates up colour using delicate layers. I love in order to start out with gentle gentle layers to obtain a better concept of illumination placement, shadows plus the coloring palette, she says. Following each layer she mixes gently using the mixing up stump. Once she provides reached a stage she`s happy with, she goes on to the last step: adding an put together . For this final level , Healy uses coloured pencils alone, and does not necessarily blend with a stump.

Check and recheck, Before you begin tougher lines and detail function , it`s essential to be sure to have the correct contact form down. Chiu`s advice will be to check and verify again. I must nail straight down my drawing`s underpinnings just before I can add information . I really avoid speculating with the details: I need to make sure almost everything is symmetrical and seem right before writing more powerful and harder lines. This individual also suggests taking a look at the work in a hand mirror or through a digital camera . Considering different vantage details is a great approach to highlight if anything is definitely crooked. I constantly request myself, does this think right? If anything appears off - even when I can`t immediately set my finger about what that is #NAME? have confidence in my gut and troubleshoot my drawing before moving forward

Try combining pencils together with watercolour, While pencils in their own may be used to generate a wealth of diverse effects, it can become interesting to combine these other media. For illustration , in her work, Healy loves to combine watercolour and even coloured pencils. It`s crucial to begin with watercolour plus then layer coloured pencils on top, she points out , because pencils can generate a waxy surface that will repels liquid, and stops the watercolour from putting into the paper. This particular is a fun method to try out, your woman says. Both mediums have got unique qualities and designs . Combining the two factors produces a medium all associated with its own.
