Description: To my amazement I have never made a tutorial based on one of the simplest things that has everything to do with dragons. I had so much fun with the concept of this first tutorial of the day which is ">em>how to draw a dragon egg</em>", step by step. I was going to do a basic egg that looked like a regular shell design with added texture on the surface, but then I thought, nah that would be too boring. Someone suggested that I make a lesson based on a dragon egg with the actual baby dragon growing inside of the shell in the form of an embryo. For a reference I looked up actual baby embryo pictures on the web to get a good idea on how I should make my dragon embryo. One of the classic images I found was actually a picture I remember my mother looking at when she was pregnant with my now sixteen year old brother. It shows a baby in the four month stage with the hand up to its face in a thumb sucking pose. The membrane lite background made the picture even more powerful, so I used that idea to create what I call a dragon egg. I do believe that you will enjoy this lesson because it is of a dragon in its purest form. I will return with some other cool stuff but for now, have fun drawing a dragon egg.
Description: Even though you will be drawing a dragon inside of an egg, you will have to draw the baby dragon first. Start with a head shape like so, and then make a line for the neck position which is bent in an arch. Attach the end of the line to the body shape.
Description: You will now start sketching out the actual structure of the dragon's head. As you can see it is in a fetal pose with the head bending downward. Draw the jaw line and then draw the spikes on back of the head.
Description: You will now be drawing the baby dragon's wing which is normally wrapped around the lower part of the body like a blanket. Once you have done that, you can sketch out more of the abdomen as well as the back part of the body.
Description: Finish the dragon embryo by drawing the tail. As you can see the tail is curled upward which forms a ball or the shape of the egg. Add some detailing to the wing and then clean up the baby dragon.
