How To Draw a Baby Dragon

Skill builder Baby Dragon

Everybody wants to draw dragons, but a baby dragon just out of the shell is really cool!

Start with a bunch of circles to create the body, arms legs and head. Remember that the knees and elbows go toward each other. Then tie them together with some lines. Draw lightly so you can erase later. Remember the heads of baby animals are larger than normal. Baby birds have small wings so I gave my baby dragon small wings too. I wanted to draw baby horns on him but they looked like ears, maybe you can do better. Dragons come in every color. Add the details like scales eyes and teeth. Put the shells on each side of him and have them all cracked. Trace your pencil drawing in a fine tipped pen and then color it in.

Other ideas: How about a nest, brother dragons, a mama dragon looking down on him or a thread of smoke coming out of his nose? Some draw dragon eggs with spots try glitter paint?
