Day 7: Draw a Dragon

Day 7 of 100 Days of drawing icons (how to draw a dragon)

Welcome to Day 7 of 100days of Drawing icons

Today’s prompt is: Dragon

These are the marked up research drawings I used. Like in Day 6. I collected reference, studied them by adding some notes, then went on to draw the icon from imagination.

I noticed how a Chinese dragon was more decorative with almost cartoon like eyes.

I also studied different animals with similar anatomical features to the dragon.

I also focused largely on the silhouette rather than the details. Adding only a few details to suggest form.

A dragon is such a complex and detailed creature. In the end I stepped back from the detail. Remember in drawing icons, the main goal is to create something readable.
