How to draw Classic European Dragons - by Gewalgon by Gewalgon How to draw Classic European Dragons - by Gewalgon by Gewalgon
[English]

Inspiried by =Wotansvogels' Raven tutorial, I created this dragon tutorial, especially for European dragons.
It's made for dragon artist beginners and those, who have some problems with the dragon wing anatomy.
Thank you very much for giving me the pleasure to help you with this tutorial! :aww:

And much Thanks to =Wotansvogel for your corrections! :heart:


If you have some tips to improve this Tutorial -> I appreciate constructive criticism much!
& don't forget: - You needn't to use this Tutorial as reference if you don't like it!
And please don't think that all other European dragons that are drawn in a different style are bad in my opinion. Art is boundless^^
Or one of my favourite quotes:


Lovely greetings from
Gewalgon :shamrock:

Durch =Wotansvogels Raben Totorial inspiriert, habe ich dieses Drachentutorial kreiert, das speziell für europäische Drachen ausgelegt ist.
Damit möchte ich Drachenzeichner-Anfängern und denen, die Schwierigkeiten mit der Flügelanatomie haben helfen.

Danke für deine Hilfe, Vogel! :heart:

The tutorial doesn't have a lot in it (dragon heads are hard.... :/) but it has got good references for the things you explained more about. :D

Well, it was my first one, and I'm still very hapy with it :-)
But dragon head? Would be a good idea to add it, but I don't know if I could draw in the same style I used for the tutorial again xD
Thank you!

Someone told me copying refs was mechanical and not actually learning anything.
