Below you’ll find an easy step-by-step tutorial for how to draw a Dragon Head and a Dragon Head Coloring Page. The profile view helps to show off that horn and spikes!
If learning how to draw a dragon head seems a little intimidating, it helps to take it step by step, so those details don’t get too daunting. This dragon head has plenty to give him a fierce look, without the worry of how to get legs and a long tail to fit in too.
How to Get Started
You may have noticed that there is a grid of three dashed lines, both in horizontal and vertical directions, on every step of this tutorial. If students make their own centered lines on their own paper, before drawing, they will have an easy reference to follow.
Drawing skills are all about getting the size and placement of lines on paper, so having some visual reference point to get started, will always help anyone learn how to be a little more accurate.
So does that mean students need to draw a big fat pencil lines one their white paper before they start? Goodness no, please don’t! That will most likely be hard to erase and distract from any finished art. No, simply fold the paper in half twice, both ways, make a crease, and unfold. The beauty is that by the time the drawing is done and colored in, the creases will disappear.
