Step 1

then i start by putting in the head. (i usaully put ears on my dragons)


Step 2

I put in the neck and start putting in the shoulders. you should always make sure you dont under muscle or over muscle the neck and always mak sure you can see its 'pipe' on the bottom of the neck. also make sure the neck connects to the body.



Step 3

put in its stomah-ab area and start putting in the legs.


Step 4

put in the legs and the base of the tail. make sure the legs are sized correctly.


Step 5

then put in the wings. dragon wings are alot like arm but the muscles are more like a bats wing. the end is very much like your hand but the fingers are longer (duh). and then put in the tail. make sure it thins off correctly.



Step 6

put in the toes and skin membrane of the wings and erase the sketch and your done :)
