On this page of pencil drawings of dragons, we'll also include their friends and family, their offspring, their old buddies from the Orient and a few ornate ones the old masters used to love in their mythical paintings.
Dragons can be quite expressive in their body language whether they are cranky, angry or downright scary. Capturing these emotions with a pencil can sometimes be difficult because they fidget endlessly and want to peek at your drawing to see if it's a good likeness. Be firm.
Tell them you want them to be really hateful as if they are acting in Hollywood. Get them to put on a "dragonish" attitude with anger looking ferocious. Generally, they have quite an affection for humans so there is not need to be scared! They are only putting on a show for you so notice the smile behind the fiery breath!
As the drawings are in pencil and sometimes pen and ink, you will not see a lot of color. Adding color later is the easy part, getting your drawing just right with all the dragoons emotions is a tad more difficult. These loving creatures can change their color like the chameleon—so use any bright color.
There are many expressions a dragon can portray, see if you can capture them as in some of these drawings. Start off with a smiling dragon, then a hateful one, sulking, happy, loving or just plain sad. Experiment.
I've put a page up here on how to draw dragons, there is a link near the bottom of this page. There are more cartoonish than the traditional dragon style, but they are easy to do even if you are just a beginner.
In a way, they are not unlike our canine friends—you look after them and they'll protect you forever. Have fun drawing (or copying) these dragons, change their expressions from being really sad to exuberant happiness.
