This time we will draw a dragon’s head. This is probably the easiest dragon to draw as it has fewer details than a complete dragon drawing. As such, the dragon’s head can be a perfect place to start practicing how to draw a dragon.
We will draw the dragon’s head with the help of simple shapes. These will make drawing the dragon much easier.

Sketch with a light pencil as you will need to erase the early lines 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.
