Hi, my name is Erik. I'm an artist and I'm going to show you how to draw lightning dragons with men and women riders. Okay let's start off by drawing the framework of the dragon. Let's just do a basic circle for that and let's draw a line through that, bring it up, come back down and then let's add just a general body shape here. I'm going to do kind of a curved balloon shape and then let's make the tail a bit longer and let's add a bit of a thigh for a leg, come down, bring it forward, add some shapes and then let's add the back leg which is going to come down like that, add some claws. Let's add the framework for the wings which are going to be like inversed Ls, bring out three lines here, two, three, one, and let's do another one here, bring this up, one, two, three, do another line here. And now the lightning dragon, I think I'm going to make it like bat wings but bring it down and make it more textured, that, that, and that, connect these ones in the back wing, bring that down, bring that up. Okay now let's connect this body here, the back legs, this, there's that, add the tail, connect that there, a little bit of a triangle at the end of the tail. Let's add kind of a beak form there, do that. and I want this one's mouth to be open so I'm going to bring this down, bring that up, add some teeth, add an eye. Now let's add the rider to this. Now the rider is going to rest right around the neck area, give it some legs, add the torso, bring an arm down, an arm there, an arm here, draw their head there, give it some hair flowing off of them. Alright and then let's just draw some quick lightning coming out which is just going to be some serrated lines and there you go. That's how you draw lightning dragons with male and female riders.
