Today we draw a dragon head with an “organic style”.
I was randomly doodling and got slowly absorbed into it.
You will see, the drawing technique is simple and pretty addictive.

So I totally forgot to take an intermediate screenshot to share with you guys.
I’ll try to get some for future doodling! But I still come up with drawing tips!

When I started to doodle, I didn’t really know about the final result. The Dragon came along the way. I was actually doing some tests with the symmetry tool of Sketchbook Pro.

To start, I used a light marker getting some abstract shapes. Then my brain started to be stimulated by them. And I roughly visualized a dragon. So I made these shapes getting closer to it. For that, I took a medium dark to refine and ended with the darkest.

I had a cow skull from the desert appeared in my mind. I added some horns. Something like that.

Half an hour later I got this.

How to draw a Dragon with the Symmetry Tool

I added a bit of red spotlight and a minimalist background to bring in more life. It helps to drive the viewer’s eyes going through the sketch.

TIP for drawing the eyes

For the eye detailing,
I recommend deactivating the symmetry tool.
Or your dragon may end up squinting! 🙂

Here is another sketch where I also started by doodling with random shapes.
