How to Draw a Dragon: 15 Easy Dragon Drawing Ideas

Dragons were one of my favorite subjects to draw when I was a kid!

It’s like drawing an animal, but you have the freedom to add whatever creative twists you like to your drawing.

I believe that is what made them so fun to draw when I was young.

However, drawing dragons can be pretty difficult for beginner artists, so here is a blog post to teach you how to draw an easy dragon drawing.

I have included a step-by-step drawing tutorial along with different ways to draw dragons so I hope you may find a drawing idea that you can follow along to so that you can give drawing a dragon a try!

Drawing Tips: First, start off with a pencil sketch of your drawing. Once you are satisfied with you sketch, go over your lines with a pen (or whatever medium you’d like). After the ink dries, erase the pencil sketch underneath to reveal your finished drawing!

Now let’s get to our dragon drawings!

I hope you enjoy and above all, have fun drawing πŸ™‚

11. Knot Dragon

Here is a step-by-step tutorial on how to draw a dragon that’s looped around into a knot.

Step 1 involves drawing the line we are going to base our drawing on. It will be erased later.

For Step 2, draw the body of the dragon based off our initial line.

For Step 3, erase the line from Step 1 and also erase the lines that are dashed.

For Step 4, draw the dragon’s head, eyes, and tail. You can also color in your dragon if you’d like!
