How to Draw a Dragon

"I'd want to learn how to draw a dragon."

That's what my brother told me, when i asked him what he'd like to draw.

...right after Wolves that is.

If you want to draw a dragon as well, come on in! This entire section will be dedicated to Dragons.

I'm sure you have a rough idea of what dragons look like. Large bodies, sharp claws, bat wings, scales, and Voila - there's your typical fire breathing lizard.

But did you know that drawing these mythical creatures can be incredibly fun and flexible? They can vary in size and length - from fearsome monsters, to cute pets.

Try replacing its snout with a beak, how about feathers instead of scales? Or even a snake-like Chinese dragon! The possibilities are endless.
