This dragon is composed of a few lines that flow gracefully so it will encourage the artist to develop beautiful lines.

Start with the serpent body. The snake is just two lines a top and a bottom that touch at both ends. To draw the twisting body takes a little practice, so start with a light pencil like a hb or 2b. You may even want to do a few rough sketches on scratch paper first. Draw the body like a letter "S" . You can add a loop by drawing the top and bottom lines in a circle, draw it right over themselves lightly, and when you are happy about the look then erase out the lines that are in the way.

The head is rounded and the tail can be a point, spade, spike or whatever you want.

Think of the wings as the number 7 lying down on its left-hand side with a curtain of skin stretched between finger joints. Draw the front one that is closest to you first. It is a good idea to practice on a scratch paper until you get it right. The wing is flapping in the wind so it has waves and the lines that make it curve gracefully. This is one of the things that make our dragon so beautiful.

After you have the front wing the way you like it then draw the back wing, it does not need to be all showing since it is behind the front one.

Add details like spikes claws, scales, fangs, and eyes.

You can color the dragon any way you want.
