Description: Hey everyone, I'm back today and with my return I bring some pretty awesome tuts starting with this one on how to draw an anime dragon girl, step by step. This creation came from a place in my mind back when I was eleven. Like most kids at that age I thought everything was possible and along with that came the possibility that I could one day become a dragon. So, what I did here was combine what I thought could happen by creating a female figure that was a hybrid of a human/dragon. I had so much fun with this drawing and it even took me a long while to complete the whole thing. I know her butt is bare, but that is part of the concept. I didn't intend for her to come out the way she did, but she did. You can add some slithering skin on her if you like, or go with the flow by drawing an anime girl like you see here. I shall return so stay tuned in.
Description: First, start off with the basic guidelines in order to get this dragon girl proportionally accurate. You'll want to make sure that you draw these guidelines as lightly as possible in order to erase them easily once the next steps have been drawn. Take your time with these!
Description: Then, we'll work on the eye shape for this dragon girl, starting with the upper lid first, then the actual iris. Once these parts are drawn as similar as the picture above, work on the slight lower lid and the tiny indent of mouth and nose.
Description: Next, start off this step by drawing the top of her head which finishes the encirclement of her hair. Then, we'll work on the neck area which embodies her shoulder and breast line. Try to work on the shoulder first then the breasts.
Description: Then, we'll work on the waist as well as her grooved back with the horns that travel through it. Take your time with this part and make sure each spike is aligned and proportionate with one another. Notice how they get bigger and smaller because of perspective.
Description: This may seem difficult, but it's not, I know it seems like a lot of hair but patience is key here. You don't want to rush and have totally estatic results. I'd always start with the outline of the flow of the hair, before I add the smaller defining details. Take your time and try to 'feel' the flow of the hair. once the hair has been drawn work on the horn.
Description: Before you move onto the inking phase (either by pencil or pen), make sure you revise your drawing by eliminating mistakes or proportion issues. If your drawing doesn't appear like this, that's totally fine, you can always retry the tutorial or make your own anime girl with similar features. I hope you guys had fun, thanks for viewing this tutorial. I can't wait to see your feedback!
