Step 20: Draw a series of long, curved lines on the top and right side of the outer edge of the wing. Sketch lightly at first. When you get the shapes right, darken the lines. Use the wing on the right as a template for what this wing should look like. The bottom should be thinner. Draw a few lines from outer edges of the wing to the bent area in the middle for the dragon's digit-like limbs on the other side. The digit-like limbs are on the other side, so don't connect the lines. This side of the wing is the skin cover.
Step 21: Go over the final sketch lines with a pen, marker or any other type of permanent ink. Take your time and be careful when you ink to avoid any accidents. After inking, get rid of every pencil mark with an eraser for a cleaner drawing of a flying dragon.
Final Step: Color your drawing! Dragons are mythical, so you can color your drawing any way you'd like. For this look, use dark brown for the spikes, horns and digit-like limbs on the wings. Add some shadows by lightly using dark brown all over to give the body more dimension and volume. Use light brown to color the scales on the underside of the body and the inside of the wing on the right. Mix red and brown to color the rest of the dragon's body. Color lightly at first and then slowly add more pressure to your pencil and blend the colors together. Coloring can be time-consuming, so be patient and take breaks. Don't forget to pause the video after each step to draw at your own pace. Use dark brown to emphasize the shadows on the dragon's body. Add some squiggly lines on the wing on the right for veins.
