Hi. My name's Eric. I'm an artist and I'm going to show you how to draw an S-shaped dragon. OK. Let's start out with just the head which is going to be the circle here and then just for the frame work starting out, let's draw, let's draw the S, and over and add a curve to that that's there. OK. Now, let's add some of the body form torso here. It's kind of fat in the middle and then taper off at the end because that's going to be the tail. Bring it up and bring it over and right now it's going to look kind of like a snake. But let's add, let's curve this so it comes down to the base line there. Now, let's add some thighs for where the leg is going to be. Bring this down, down, over and under there. Add some claws there. Another thigh there, bring this down and under and match on that side. OK. Now, let's add a bit of a snout to this, over, up, do that. Add the same on the bottom. Just add some quick teeth there. Let's have a snout and an eye here. OK. Now, let's add the arms which are going to be up here. Let's bring this one here, and there, claw, claw, claw. And here, claw, claw, claw. Let's add this. Let's get rid of these lines that we don't need so much. Our initial framework lines we can get rid of, with this and this here. OK. Now we can start adding details. Get these bits that come out of the dragon's head. A little bit of horn, horn. Now, let's add that back thing that comes around, the spikes that are lizards some times. Coming around, bring it all the way down, make it follow the tail. Whoops, this looks a little goofy here. OK. Now, do that stomach bit where they have the crosshatching for the underbelly. Fill in the legs. Bring this in here, this up to the thigh. Fill in this leg for the thigh. Come down and under. Let's crosshatch the belly some. Let's crosshatch, hatch lines across. And a little texture there. And fill in this arm and let's fill in this arm too. And as a last touch, just do a triangle at the end of the tail. And that is how you draw an S-shaped dragon.
