How to Draw a Manga Dragon

In this video course we are going to draw and paint a Manga dragon. Don’t worry he’s cute but you can make him meaner if you wish. Using the same three areas of shape, detail, and shadow  you will be able to replicate the dragon by drawing along with me in the videos. Get your paper and pens and let’s get started.

We are going to start off drawing the shape of our dragon first

We are now going to add details to make the dragon look like a dragon

Once we have the detail of the dragon we are going to make it look 3-d by adding shadow for form

Now we can add colour to make our art come alive
