You may find it easier to follow the step-by-step drawings below the video. The new lines in each step are shown in red, so you'll know exactly what to draw next. You may want to open the video in a new tab and use both drawing methods. Take your time and draw at your own pace.
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 right side of the paper as a guide for the front part of the water dragon's body. First make four marks to determine 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 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: To the left, draw another circle as a guide for the back of the water dragon's body. Use the four-marks method to draw this circle too. This circle should be slightly bigger than the first circle. The farther apart you draw them, the longer the dragon's body will be.
Step 3: Above the first circle, off to the right, draw a smaller circle as a guide for the head. This circle should be about half the size of the first one. The higher up you draw it, the longer the water dragon's neck will be.
Step 4: On the top, left side of the head, draw a tall, sideways arc for the water dragon's top jaw. Below that, draw a similar arc for the lower part of the open jaw. The farther apart you draw the arcs, the wider the open mouth will be.
Step 5: Connect the head to the first circle using two curved lines to create the guide for the water dragon's neck. The line on the right should be longer than the line on the left. It should connect to the bottom of the first circle. Connect the first two circles using a couple of curved lines to finish the guide for the water dragon's torso.
