Easy How to Draw a Dragon Tutorial and Easy Dragon Coloring Page

Below you’ll find an easy step-by-step tutorial for how to draw an Easy Dragon and an Easy Dragon Coloring Page. Great for younger dragon-loving artists.

Fantasy creatures are certainly fun to draw, with all they lend to the imagination. The dragon though, has to be up there on the list of the more complex. What with their fire-breathing mouths, wings, spikes, claws and tail, they can be a lot for students to take on when they are just starting to learn how to draw.

This doesn’t mean those students have to miss out on something as fun as making up their own dragon though. A tutorial that starts with some really basic body shapes, and then gradually adds more details is a good way to start. It’s a great way to insure that their dragon ends up looking as strong and sturdy as he or she can be.

Materials to Draw a Dragon

  • Drawing Paper. This is the good stuff you can buy in bulk for a good price.
  • Pencils. I like how this brand always makes nice dark lines.
  • Black Marker. A permanent marker will give you a dark black color.
  • Crayons. The larger packs are nice for more color choices.
