One of my pet peeves is a how to draw a dragon tutorial that is supposed to be for kids, but is really much more appropriate for teenagers or adults. See below to download a print-friendly PDF tutorial.
I created this tutorial for our school’s multicultural week, and it worked well for kinders through even 4th graders.
Your drawing may of course be completed however you like, but I recommend that you try filling him in 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. The overall look will automatically blend, just like a pro.
