Below you can watch a Narrated 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: Start by drawing three circles as guides for the wind dragon's body and head. To draw each circle, first make four marks to determine its height and width. Then connect the marks using curved lines. If you're struggling to draw the circles, just trace the outer rim of a circular object like a coin or a bottle cap. For a more detailed guide on the different ways to draw a circle check out this tutorial: Four simple ways to draw a circle. Pay attention the the size and spacing between the circles. The farther apaart you place the circles, the longer the body will be.
Step 2: Connect the circles using a series of lines to create the guide for the dragon's body. The left side of the neck should be wide and the side closer to the head should be thinner. The tail should also be wide at the base and thin and pointy on the left side. On the right side of the head, draw a small arc on its side as a guide for the muzzle.
Step 3: Under the circle in the middle, draw a small angled line as a guide for the dragon's arm. The shape of the arm should be similar to a less-than sign with a curved line at the bottom. Under the circle to the left, draw another angled line as a guide for the hind leg. These lines should be similar to two check marks. On top of the body draw a couple of long lines as guides for the wing. The wings angle to the left side and the line in the middle should slope down toward the tail.
That's it for the guides! From this point on, press down harder with your pencil for a more defined drawing.
Step 4: Inside the head circle, near the right edge, lightly sketch a small oval for the dragon's eye. When you get the size and position right, darken the shape but make it more angular. Draw a curved line over the eye for the lower edge of the thick brow. Draw a series of small, pointy shapes above the eye for the thick, spiky brow.
