Please PAUSE the "How to Draw a Dragon (Cartoon)" video after each step to draw at your own pace.
Written step-by-step video tutorial:
For the first few steps, don't press down too hard with your pencil. Use light, smooth strokes to begin.
Step 1: Draw two short, diagonal lines for the dragon's eyebrows. Sketch lightly at first. When you get the angles right, darken the lines. Bend the tips and add a small line in the middle to emphasize the furrowed brow. Under each eyebrow, draw a diamond-like shape for the eyes. The eye on the right should be a bit bigger because of how the head is turned.
Step 2: Under the eye on the left, draw a curved, vertical line for the dragon's muzzle. Add an extra bump near the bottom of the line to indicate the first nostril. Curve the line to the right then upward so that it ends near the eye on the right. The overall shape of the muzzle under the eyes should be similar to the letter U.
Step 3: Under the muzzle, draw another curved line for the lower jaw. Follow the curvature of the muzzle so that the lower jaw is somewhat parallel to it. Inside the jaw, draw a shorter, curved line for the dragon's open mouth.
Step 4: Within the muzzle, draw a couple of short lines for the other nostril. Inside the mouth, along the edges, draw a series of triangle-like shapes for the dragon's teeth.
Step 5: On either side of the dragon's eyes, draw a series of short, curved lines that end in points for the first set of horns. On the left side, draw a curved line for the head too. The horn on the right should be right above the jaw.
