drawing something really cool dragon
all right you got your marker yes all
right we hope you guys are gonna follow

with and some paper in front of you
you’re ready to start yeah now at the
end of the lesson we’re gonna color our
dragons and we’re going to use yellow
orange and red he’s gonna see a fire
dragon
goodbye dragon so let’s move those off
to the side we needed those at the end
and we’re gonna draw our dragon first
okay and up here in the top left corner
we’re going to start with his head and
we’re going to use the whole paper we’re
gonna fill the paper with our dragon
first step we’re going to start with his
eye and we’re going to draw a curve
that’s the top of his eye and then we’re
going to draw the bottom of the eye and
it’s going to be another curve inside of
that one and if we go too fast what can
our reference you little baby is you can
always pause the video now we’re going
to draw the top of our dragon’s head so
it’s little s line it’s going to start
going over his eye and come down on his
nose and then right here we’re going to
draw the front of our dragon’s mouth and
I left a little gap but you can connect
it if you want now we’re going to draw
his mouth and it’s going to go up back
down and then back up it’s like an S
curve yes and then we’re going to come
back the other way for the bottom of his
mouth sweet now we’re going to draw the
bottom of his jaw another lion and then
we’re going to draw the very bottom of
his jaw it’s not cool we got his head
already in there now let’s draw his
teeth and we’re going to draw zigzags
going back into his mouth and I’m going
to draw a teeth on the bottom also
now we’re going to draw his neck and
we’re going to start right here at the
bottom of his head we’re going to draw
an s-line comes this way and then back
and it’s going to start his chest right
down here at the bottom eyes now we’re
going to draw the top of his head and
his neck the other side of his neck so
we’re going to start here and we’re
gonna follow that line we just drew
looks like it looks like that dinosaur
that’s oh yeah like a brontosaurus yes
kind of does nice good job now the neck
looks really thin on both of our dragons
so let’s make it thicker by drawing
another line right next to it this is
going to be for his belly for the design
on his neck which looks a lot like a
snake this could be a snake kind of a
dragon okay yes that looks really cool
now let’s add details to his head and
coming down his neck we’re going to draw
Spike’s cat in the top of his top of his
nose and when I draw this spikes I’m not
going to draw them all the same we’re
going to do zigzags but some of the
spikes are going to be really big and
some of the spikes are going to be small
so we could draw small ones and then
really big ones and some small ones and
mix them up so they don’t all look the
same and they can be a little messy too
if you want now when I go down his neck
I’m going to turn my paper so it’s a
little easier to draw the spikes coming
down
now at the top of his head I’m going to
draw even bigger spikes look at this
these maybe these are even horns like
big huge spikes coming out
cool now over his eye let’s add more
spikes going right over his eye maybe
for his eyebrow his eyebrows hedge his
eyebrows spikes and then I’m going to
draw more spikes coming down his jaw and
I’m also going to draw more spikes right
here coming down his neck
and maybe even some spikes coming down
his jaw look at that that’s really cool
now let’s add a nostril and we can put a
little six for his nostril and let’s add
a tongue too so right here coming out of
his mouth I’m going to draw a curve a
little J shape and then on the bottom of
this tongue I’m going to draw another J
shape coming around and then we can
connect the two lines with a V if we
want to or we could add more spikes
maybe his tongue has stopped his tongue
his tongue has spikes everything that is
aspects alright what should we draw next
the wings or the arms ah see the arms
let’s do the arms you want to save the
wings for last yes okay let’s draw so
this line this is going to be the top of
this arm and we’re going to draw them
with two arms and no legs
so he’s half snake half dragon hey so
we’ve got a line coming down and then
we’re going to draw another line coming
out this way so this is where his elbow
is going to be and then we’re going to
draw the back part of his his arm and
then it’s going to bend here we’re going
to come up and draw up to his wrist and
we could draw his claws so I’m going to
draw a C shape and then we’re going to
draw another curve right here and then
another curve up close those are going
to be for his fingers and then we can
connect them so that they look like
claws
now these 3d so we need to draw the
other arm we’re going to draw bent line
coming up
this is his elbow and then draw the
other part of his arm coming down
bending up now I’m going to draw this
hand a little different we’re going to
draw an upside down see a rainbow line
and then we’re going to draw another all
right here curve and then one last one
coming back and then we can connect
these so I’m going to draw the first
finger like that then the next finger
and then one last finger right here at
the bottom connected a well yeah that
looks scary then we can draw the curves
right here on his fingers for the
fingernails
okay now his arms need spikes too right
yes so right here I’m going to draw
small spikes coming out the back but
then as they get to the rest of his arm
I’m going to draw bigger spikes coming
up the back of his arm and I’ll do that
same thing on his other arm and maybe
even I’m going to add even another row
of spite on top of that now we’ve drawn
a lot of spikes but you guys at home
could draw different details on your
dragon if you wanted to now let’s draw
the wings okay okay we’re going to start
right here right at the top of his neck
and we’re going to draw curve that comes
up
so right now we’re going to draw a
spikes right here where his wing bends
and then we’re going to draw the rest of
his wing coming way over here to the
corner of the paper good job now let’s
draw the other side of his wing so we’re
going to start here on the corner and
we’re going to come down and as we get
closer to the bend his elbow we can get
further away see how it gets thicker
right here and it’s thin up here now
let’s finish the rest of his wing down
and into his body now we’re going to
draw the rest of the wing and so we’re
going to draw these they’re like the
spikes I guess kind of they’re like
spines coming out and we’re going to
draw this we’re going to draw them the
same way that we drew the end of this
wing where we come back and add a
thickness then we’re going to turn our
paper and draw another one
good now we’re going to drop one more
yes now the next one we’re going to draw
down here so these three we drew right
next to each other this one’s going to
come down and it’s going to be shorter
than the other ones nice now we’re going
to come down a little further and we
draw another one and this one’s going to
be even shorter than that last one we
drew let’s do one more shorter and then
one last one even shorter cool now we
need to connect these with a curve so
watch this we’re going to curve down and
then back out and connect this looks a
lot like a batwing then we’re going to
do the next one connect it and go
through the whole wing and connect each
of these spikes or spines
[Applause]
good job man that looks awesome
he only has one wing now yeah he needs a
second one so let’s try that second one
right behind the first wing we drew and
it’s also going to go behind his neck so
we connected it to his neck we’re going
to imagine it coming up right here and
then sneck and then bending so we’re
going to bend back what did we do next
on this way I go back yes we start up
here go back and add a thickness to it
and it will come down here and draw the
rest of it cool now let’s add those
little spines so we’re going to draw
another one right below it
and then the next one is going to go
behind the wing so we’re going to stop
right there and come back
good now there’s one more right yeah and
we do three that we’re kind of coming
out of the same spot and then we’re
going to go down and draw the next one
and then down again and then we don’t
really have room for another one unless
you do you can add a little one we did
it now we need to connect each of these
and I just have room to connect to now
he has two wings this one’s in front of
that one it looks 3d right yeah because
of overlapping all right let’s draw the
rest of his body
so this line so we have two lines for
his neck coming down we’re going to have
those two lines come back underneath his
arm and connect into our wing so there’s
one line there’s another line look at
that see how they look like they
continued through his arm now this part
of his body is going to curl up behind
his wing come down and do a loop and
then back up the paper and rollercoaster
it’ll look like a rollercoaster and if
you want to make that a little simpler
or a little easier you can just have the
the belly or the tail come down and back
up you don’t have to do the loop so here
we go we’re going to draw the first loop
we’re going to come out right here come
around do the loop and back like that
cool good job okay now we’re going to
draw the other part of his body and if
you run out of room you can just imagine
it going off the page and coming back so
we’re going to start here come around oh
and I ran out of room I’ll imagine it
going off the page coming back and
looping back up good now we have this
inside line right so we’re going to draw
the inside line coming around
[Applause]
coming back up good oh no that’s cool I
like that and then it tapers off and
maybe it’s behind all right now let’s
draw his tail coming right here coming
down and then back up so we’re going to
draw the bottom of his tail coming down
and up good then we’re going to draw the
top of his tail and as we get to the end
of his tail we’re going to get closer
until we come to a point right at the
end now again if this part was too
tricky you could just have his tail come
down and up instead of doing this loop
now I’m going to draw that one last line
right here and it’s going to do what you
did come in and taper and whoops taper
in right at the bottom and finish what
would I do this part right here so this
part so this belly line that comes down
and it tapers in I did that over here oh
now we’re going to draw the scales going
down his belly and we’re gonna draw him
like a ladder so we need to turn or like
a roller coaster track oh yeah yeah
remember how you said it looked like a
roller coaster yes we’re going to bend
these lines as we go around the turns
that cool
now what are we missing on his tail the
spikes yes we need spikes so we’re going
to start right here and remember to
change them make them some small some
big go all the way around I’m going to
come out over here
and then on the end of his tail I’m
going to get smaller and smaller until
you can’t see them
I even added spikes on his hands it
couldn’t resist we finish them n did you
have fun yes now we need a color and
we’re going to fast forward and at the
very end we’re gonna add shading kit you
ready to fast work yeah let’s do it
right now
you
okay we got our dragons all colored
except you new colors tongue yeah yeah
you’re that I was like other stuff there
you go
yeah done good job get five now we need
to you could blow off all those little
shavings there you go two job now we’re
going to use our red and we’re going to
add shading to all the different parts
of our dragon now
we’re not going to shade his wing yet
okay we’re going to save that in a sec
but we’re going to come back here and
I’m going to shade shade the bottom of
each of the spikes okay so I’m going to
shade the bottom of the spikes and then
the next row up so these big spikes up
here I’m going to shade the bottom of
those spikes see how that makes them
look like they’re behind the other ones
that cool and then I’m going to also
shade behind the spikes on his neck I
want to shade the back of his neck a
little
I’m also going to add a little shading
on his face to the top of his head right
here I’m also going to shade inside of
his tongue so inside of his mouth start
really dark up inside his mouth and then
fade out towards the end of his tongue
now on his neck I’m going to shade so we
shaded right here on the top of his neck
and I’m going to switch to the back of
his neck start dark on the back of his
neck and then blend out to the left I’m
going to start really dark and get
lighter as we go across his body
okay now on his arms I’m going to shade
the bottom part of his arm and then
blend up to the top
now on his tail we’re going to shape the
bottom right here is going to be dark
and then blend up to the top and I’m
going to do the same thing on this tail
on this part of his tail I’m going to
shade really dark on the bottom side the
outside and then get lighter as I move
towards the center or up
and then I’m going to shade this part of
his tail the bottom is going to be dark
and then as it goes across to the top
it’s get lighter and that makes his tail
and his body look round now we’re going
to shade his wing and the bottom part is
going to be dark and then fade out
towards the top
now we’re going to switch back to our
orange we’re going to use this to smooth
out the red pencil marks okay
next we’re going to use the orange to
shade the yellow parts of our dragon so
under his neck or under his head we just
press really hard and then we’re going
to fade out towards the bottom
see how it’s adding that little bit of
shading I’m going to do the same under
his armpit armpits and then I’m also
going to shade his wings so right here
inside of this B part start dark and
then fade out like that and then I’m
also going to add a shadow on the top
part of the web was like webbing
I got a duck’s foot now we’re going to
repeat those same steps on each of the
sections of his wing okay
now one last thing we’re going to switch
to our red and we’re going to add a
darker shadow right under his neck so
right on that orange that we just
colored in and they’re also going to do
a little layer on each of those sections
of his wing so start dark and you don’t
need to add a lot just right here in the
corner
dude you’d read it looks amazing did you
have fun yes it’s okay that her dragons
look a little different right yeah cuz
the most important thing is Jaffa yes to
have fun and I want to challenge you
guys at home to change your dragon so
who doesn’t look exactly like ours right
yeah call your dragon blue it could be a
nice dragon yeah hey how are you awesome
one of the last things that we usually
like doing at the end of our drawing is
to go around our drawing with a thicker
line and it really makes her our dragon
pop off the page and we hope you had a
lot of fun following along with us and
draw on your own dragons remember if we
ever went too fast you can always pause
the video yes you can always pause the
video see you later our friends good bye
