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 near the middle of the paper as a guide for the first part of the earth 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, just trace the outer rim of a small, circular object like a coin or a lid. 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 right side, draw a smaller circle as a guide for the back of the body. Use the four-marks method to draw this circle as well. Pay attention to the space between the circles. The farther apart they are, the longer the earth dragon's body will be.
Step 3: Draw another circle on the top, left side as a guide for the head. This circle should be about one-fifth the size of the first circle. The higher up it is, the longer the earth dragon's neck will be.
Step 4: On the left side of the head, draw the guide for the dragon's muzzle using a couple of short lines. The resulting shape of the guide should be blocky and almost square-like.
Step 5: Draw two curved lines that connect the head to the body to form the guide for the neck. Add two more lines that connect the first two circles to finish the guide for the earth dragon's body.
