Pencil Sketches Dragons

[quote_center]Dragons are perceived in different ways by different cultures. They are sometimes said to breathe and spit fire or poison, and ice. They are commonly portrayed as serpentine or reptilian, hatching from eggs and possessing typically feathered or scaly bodies. Winged dragons are usually portrayed only in European dragons while Oriental versions of the dragon resemble large snakes.[/quote_center]

Start to add thickness to the lines that defined the form of the dragon. Keep things simple and fluid. Add few lines and judge constantly the look of your drawing. Is it coming off like you imagined it?

In this tutorial however we are going to tackle a more classic fantasy-like representation of a dragon sitting on its treasure. We all know dragons love gold and precious things 🙂

From this point you might want to leave the H2 pencil you started with and start using the B2 in order to make darker lines and to better define the outline of the drawing.

Look carefully and you’ll see that I have just added a bit of volume and thickness here and there to better visualize the final form of the dragon.

Is the head too small for the body? If you think it is this is the perfect time to fix it. Later on with all the details changing something like that might make a mess of your drawing.

You could draw small dragons, whale dragons or rabbit dragons the limit is your imagination.

I have focused on the head a little bit. I have increased the number of details of the head and the neck and you might want to do something similar. Do not forget though to work at the drawing without loosing control of the overall feeling. So add a few head details bat keep working on the neck, wings and body.

Now that you feel confident about your drawing and about the general composition it is time to start adding details and personality to the dragon.

In this case I used a triangle to shape the head and just a few lines to define the neck and the wings. Finally a couple of circles to define where the shoulders will be.

[quote_left]Following discovery of how pterosaurs walked on the ground, some dragons have been portrayed without front legs and using the wings as front legs pterosaur-fashion when on the ground[/quote_left]

There is no limit at what we can draw using a dragon as a subject and mixing it up with whatever we want.

Now step back and look at your drawing. See if it fits your mind image. See if the proportions of the parts are reasonable.

Keep adding detail as your imagination suggests you. Make the head a bit more complex and add scales to the neck. I have added a set of horns and pointy appendages but you can improvise and do something different.

Anyway, dragon drawings are fantastic but present many difficulties. At the same time Dragons are fantasy creatures and offer great margin of improvisation.

Well this is our final step. Keep working at the drawing as a whole and add lines and marks with the B2 to emphasize shapes and volumes.

More importantly, note how the lines flow basically according to the direction established with the basic drawing. Look at the shape of the neck for example.

As you can see the first move is always try to figure how our final composition will eventually be as explained in drawing basics. It is essential to visualize the drawing in our minds first and then put it down on the paper using basic shapes first.

There you have it, a mighty dragon in 5 easy steps! I hope you enjoyed this tutorial about Pencil drawings of dragons. If you have and want to leave a comment or feedback you can do it on the Contact Us page.

From this point on adding details should be a breeze and you can be sure the final drawing is going to look cool. This is because you have focused on the general shapes and composition first. To help yourself along the way gather pictures of reptiles for example to see how scales look and intermingle.

There aren’t shadows in this drawing on purpose so you can focus on the control of the shape and lines.

The head is still a basic triangle with some horns. And I have just played with the shape and size of the eyes to give him a menacing look.

By the way the first thing to do is to visualize the scene and establish the main shape of the dragon. For this tutorial start drawing with an H2 pencil and change only toward the ending of the drawing.
