Would you like to learn how to draw an easy dragon head? This dragon face drawing tutorial will help you master the easy dragon head outline.

Dragons are the serpent-like creatures of many legends. This dragon in particular looks like a sea serpent, a "mythological and legendary marine animal that traditionally resembles an enormous snake."

This dragon's face has a strong jawline and a jutting chin. This makes the dragon look tough, strong, and powerful, even though you can't see his body.

Speaking of his body - can you create one for him out of your imagination? You can look to the sea serpent-like Japanese dragon or this Western dragon for inspiration.

Did you know? Sightings of monstrous sea serpents are likely mistaken observations of other ocean animals. The culprits might include huge basking sharks, ribbonfish, oarfish, giant squid, large marine worms, or even porpoises swimming in a line.
