Dragons are famous mythological creatures that humans have told stories about for centuries. No one has ever found a dragon skeleton, but when you draw a cartoon dragon skull, you can imagine that you're an archeologist who found a skeleton for the first time in history.

What would you do if you found a dragon skull? Maybe you'd donate it to a museum or display it in your bedroom.

Either way, this cartoon dragon skull has horns, sharp teeth and a fierce expression--just like a living dragon. Hang up the drawing in your room so the skull will scare away people that you don't like.

Before you start, find a few sheets of blank paper and a pencil. Outline the drawing with a black pen, then use your favorite coloring tools to complete your cartoon dragon skull. Once you've mastered this drawing, you'll have the skulls to draw a living cartoon dragon.
