Hi, my name is Erik. I'm an artist. I'm going to show you how to draw a dragon with a rider. Okay let's start out just by drawing the head here with a basic circle, come down and you're going to want to arch the neck a bit in this direction so that the rider actually has a place to rest and you have a lump shape here for the torso and let's draw the thighs here, bring the leg down like such. It's kind of like a chicken leg actually that goes down, the claw. And now let's add a tail coming around and let's just add a hand, little claws here and draw the wing, one, two, three, one, this up here, one, two, three, one, bring this in like a bat's wings, one, two, three, one. Okay, and bring the neck down here and here. Now let's erase some of this area in here since it's going to be the area where the rider needs to rest. Okay so let's bring him in seated here, draw that shape there, bring this in here. Just draw his torso, get the basic shape of his leg there and draw foot going down. Up here, draw the torso. He's going to be facing this way. One arm coming in here, one arm coming in there, there we go and then just draw the head here. Okay, just the outline there, draw the mouth there. Then we can fill in these arms, draw an eye, the side comes here, there's that. Okay let's erase some of these extra lines on the rider here and there are a lot of them. Now this arm, fill in this arm and then this leg quick and a tail. And let's just give this guy hair, nice. And that is how you draw a dragon with a rider.
