One of the most archetypal creatures of myth, legend, and contemporary fantasy, the dragon has terrified and fascinated humankind throughout history. Classical literature and myths of old will provide you with some of the most standard descriptions of a dragon’s appearance: broad wings, spiky horns, fearsome teeth, rending claws, long tails, and thick skin or dense, armored scales. But there are as many different types of dragons as your imagination can conjure up, so once you have the hang of drawing a classic dragon, experiment with different looks and features to make your own unique creatures.
