Please PAUSE the "How to Draw an Dragon" video after each step to draw at your own pace.
For the first few steps, don't press down too hard with your pencil. Use light, smooth strokes to begin.
Step 1: Draw two circles as guides for the dragon's body. They don't have to be perfect. They're just guides. Instead, pay attention to the size and spacing of the circles. That will determine the size of your dragon.
Step 2: Draw a smaller circle on the upper right side of the dragon's body. The height of the circle will determine the dragon's neck length, so place it accordingly.
Step 3: Draw an arc next to the head as a guide for the dragon's muzzle.
Step 4: Draw angled lines below the dragon's body as guides for the legs. If you want your dragon to have longer legs, draw longer lines. Make the squiggles darker in certain areas to create the stripey look.
Step 5: Draw a series of curved lines that connect the major shapes and form the dragon's neck and the body.
