Description: How to draw a wyvern, or four-limbed dragon. Graphite used: HB for sketching and general shading, 2B for dark shading, 4H for light details/shading, and powdered graphite for base shading. Paper used: 2-ply Bristol Plate (Extra Smooth).
Description: Start adding the next layer of detailed lines from left to right. Make the lines darker and more defined without adding too much pressure; try to produce darker lines without making them permanent and un-erasable.
Description: Add a layer of base shading to the entire drawing. There are many ways to go about adding this base layer, the quickest and most effective involves using powdered graphite. Sprinkle a pinch or two of powdered graphite onto the paper and blend it in with a paper towel or tissue. Lightly cross-hatching over the paper with an HB pencil, then smoothing out the shading will produce a similar but rougher effect.
Description: Switch to a sharpened HB pencil and add detailed shading to the head and neck. Don't worry about adding the most minute details, just concentrate on defining the main outlines, shadows, and forms.
Description: Start adding a final layer of extra details using 2B and 4H pencils. Use a sharpened 2B pencil to define the dark shading and outlines on the wyvern as well as the cliff. Use a 4H pencil or any hard pencil, to refine or add any small details to the wyvern itself. Use a blending stump and powdered graphite to smooth out the background.
