How to Draw A Dragon for Kids

Let’s learn how to draw something more harder. Enough with the easy stuff and more with the real deal drawing lessons. We are going to learn how to draw a dragon for kids. This shouldn’t be ultra hard, but enough to put you in a situation when you have to erase five to ten times. This tutorial can really help you out when dealing with drawing an awesome dragon, AKA concept art 😀 Drawing something simple like this could also help you out with many hard body parts on a dragon. What makes a dragon hard to draw? Well think about it for a second. When you lay your pencil on that paper trying to draw a dragon, what are the things you think about that prevents you from drawing one? Well for one, dragons are mystical creatures. Almost all mystical creatures are hard to draw; trolls, ogres, gryphons, and unicorns. Second, when we draw dragons, we think of dinosaurs. When you draw that dragon, it starts looking like a dinosaur now don’t it? Well we got to stop thinking of dinosaurs and think more about a dragon. They are different from dinosaurs besides them being both reptiles. Third (Last,) you probably don’t know what to draw first when drawing a dragon. Those are all the problems that I must solve, which I probably already did. To solve this, we must start simple. You don’t know how to draw a basic dragon? Well here’s how it’s done.

First we draw a circle for the dragon’s head and an oval for the dragon’s body (As a guideline.) Second, draw the shape of the dragon’s head and body. Don’t forget to leave some gaps to draw the horns, legs, and ear. The muzzle is also required when your drawing the dragon’s head shape, as well as the tail. It starts getting tricky now, don’t it? Don’t worry, I make it piece by piece after this step. Third, draw the wing. That shouldn’t be hard. Fourth, draw the horns and then the ear. Fifth, draw the legs. The front legs are drawn different than the hind as you can see. The sixth step is the just draw the eye and extra detail like the neck marking. We then come down to the seventh step; finish it.

As you know, it wasn’t all that hard now was it? You can transform simple to something more complex if you like. Make this baby dragon into a mama dragon or a daddy dragon if you like. It would look more better. Trust me 😀 I’ll be uploading more drawing lessons in the future, so stay tuned for more. Also be sure to comment and share. Thank you!
