Your drawing may of course be completed however you like, but I recommend that you try coloring your dragon with two values of whatever color you choose. Press hard to get a darker color for the top of the head and neck, and then a lighter for the underside belly. The overall look will create a blended look, just like to pros create!

Draw a Red Dragon

Here’s another tutorial for a dragon that is a little more realistic, but still fairly simple. I’d save it for maybe 4th and 5th graders on up.


Spiked Dragon

And here’s an option for more advanced artists, as the dragon body twists and turns, which makes it a little trickier to draw, but oh so cool when you are done!
