For the first few steps, don't press down too hard with your pencil. Use light, smooth strokes to begin.
Step 1: Draw a small circle near the bottom of the paper as a guide for the dragon's body. First make four small marks to indicate the circle's width and height. Then connect the marks using curved lines to form the rest of the circle. If you're struggling drawing the circle, trace the outer rim of a coin, a lid or any other object with a circular edge.
Step 2: Draw a curved horizontal line across the head. This construction line will help you place the dragon's facial features later. Add a curved vertical line on the top, left side of the head for another construction line.
Step 3: On the lower, left side of the dragon's head, draw a small arc as a guide for the top part of the muzzle. This arc should be similar to the letter U that's slightly tilted to the right.
Step 4: Draw a longer curved line under the head as a guide for the dragon's lower jaw. This guide should be similar to the letter V, but it should have a round bottom instead of pointy.
Step 5: To the right of the head, draw another circle as a guide for the front part of the dragon's body. Draw this circle the same way as the head. First make four small marks for the width and height, then connect the marks with curved lines. This circle should be about twice the size of the head. Don't draw it too far away from the head, either.
