In the third installment in our how to draw a dragon series, we will draw a Chinese dragon. Chinese dragons are quite different from the western style dragon. They are snake-shaped creatures with legs.
Drawing a Chinese dragon is quite easy. If you follow the step-by-step drawing guide carefully, you will have your dragon drawn in just minutes.

Draw with a light hand. You will be erasing some of the early shapes before the drawing is complete.
In the guide below, each step is highlighted in a light blue color.
You don’t need any special pens or tools. A regular pencil, eraser, and paper are all you need. If you want, you can also color the drawing with colored pencils or pens.

Step-by-Step Instructions for Drawing a Chinese Dragon
Draw a small circle at the bottom right corner of the paper. The dragon’s body is quite long, so leave enough room for it.
Draw yet another curved line parallel to the previous ones. You can start to see the outline of the dragon’s body.
Add a couple more curved lines to the body to make it more three dimensional. See the video below, if you’re uncertain how to draw the lines.
