The 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 a circle on the right side of the paper as a guide for the front part of the ice dragon's body. First make four small marks to indicate the circle's height and width. Then connect the marks using curved lines. If you're struggling to draw the circle, trace the outer rim of a bottle cap, a lid or any other object with a circular edge. For a more detailed guide on the different ways to draw a circle check out this tutorial: Four simple ways to draw a circle.
Step 2: On the left side, draw a smaller circle as a guide for the back of the body. This circle should be about half the size of the first one. The farther apart they are, the longer the ice dragon's body will be.
Step 3: Draw another circle on the top, right side as a guide for the ice dragon's head. This circle should be about one-fourth the size of the first circle. Place this circle pretty high up so that the dragon ends up with a long neck.
Step 4: On the right side of the ice dragon's head, draw a small arc as a guide for the muzzle. The bigger you draw this arc, the bigger the muzzle will be. Make it slope down a bit too.
Step 5: Under the big circle on the right, draw an angled line as a guide for the first front leg. The line should bend near the middle to indicate the joint and at the bottom for the foot. Draw a shorter, angled line to the right as a guide for the ice dragon's other front leg.
