Written step-by-step video tutorial:
For the first few steps, don't press down too hard with your pencil. Use light, smooth strokes to begin.
Step 1: Draw a curved line similar to a half-circle for this little cartoon dragon's eye. Sketch lightly at first so that it's easy to erase if you make a mistake. When you get the shape right, darken the line and make it thick for eyelashes. The shape should be like a circle that doesn't connect at the bottom.
Step 2: Inside the eye, draw a small circle for the iris. Sketch lightly at first to get the shape right. Inside the iris, at the top and bottom, draw two tiny circles for highlight. In the middle of the iris, draw a smaller circle and shade it in for the dragon's pupil. Don't overlap the highlights.
Step 3: Draw a curved line above the dragon's eye for a thick brow. Make the line jagged along the way to give the brow a rough, bony look.
Step 4: On the lower, left side of the eye, lightly sketch a big C-shaped line for the dragon's muzzle. The bottom part should curve and end under the eye. When you get the shape right, darken the lines. The bigger this line is, the bigger the muzzle will be. At the end, draw a smaller line for a smile line.
Step 5: To the left of the eye, draw a long, curved line for the front/top of the cartoon dragon's head. Under the muzzle, draw a shorter curved line for the bottom part of the head.
