Hi, my name is Erik. I'm an artist and I'm going to show you how to draw a dragon that breathes fire while standing on four legs. Okay let's start out just by drawing the head which is going to be a basic circle and then let's bring the framework for the neck up and over and let's draw the body here which is just going to be kind of a lumpish oval shape and we're going to keep that pretty even with the head because they're going to be standing on four legs. Now let's draw the thigh here, bring the leg back and down like claws and let's do a matching leg like that over here. Okay now let's do this side also but smaller so we're going to bring it back, give it some claws, bring it back and claws out like that. Okay now let's add the line for the tail here and we can bring that in and fill it up now, bring the tail up here. Okay now let's add some quick wings, one, two, three and then one here at the joint and let's do a wing here, one, two and three, there's another joint and let's fill it in kind of like bat wings, there we go and one here, cool. Now let's fill in this neck here, get rid of this line and let's give it a lizard like snout and let's have its mouth open because it's going to be breathing fire, bring this around, add some teeth, some teeth here, give it a snout. I want to get rid of some of these extra lines because we don't need them anymore for framework. Let's fill in this leg, bring it in, then this leg also and the front legs. Now let's fix these claws here because they don't look like they're on the ground yet and here. Okay an eye, side plume and here and just a horn and horn. Now let's add that fire, just bring it out. I'm going to change up colors just to add some plumes of fire here, and the tongue is out, add some plumes it kind of looks like streamers and you can add an inside part to add some texture. and that is how you draw a dragon standing on four legs and breathing fire.
