I have never drawn a dragon but ok

1. I'd suggest getting a good refernce, like the pose you want so you can make it as accurate as possible, it also makes your life alot easier.

 

2. Sketch out the skeleton. Ya know them circles and lines people do to help them draw? Do those, I've never done them before but, they worked when I was drawing a horse.

 

3. Ontop of the skeleton, add on the details, not the intricate ones life scale effects, like wings, head and stuff like that

 

4. After you get the body of the nightlight, I'd say go on and add the detail then rub out the skeleton, before doing that, I'd recommend outlining the actual nightlight in a drawing pen or a sharpier (sharpie depending on the size), even a regular ballpoint pen would work and, if you're feeling crazy, a dip pen, ya know them quils from like 200 years ago? Get one of those, the pens that you have to dip in ink. For this, I'd recommend making the outline thicker than you intend it to be because when you're rubbing out the sketch, the ink tends to thin out.

 

5. Colour if necessary, unless you wanna do shadows and things and leave it black and white.

 

I can't draw a dragon for the life of me but, from drawing other things, I've learned some of these are better off.

My Backstory:

 

   Lightning, rain, fire, b.lood and dragons were the last things I saw before I was shoved onto a small boat and set out to sea

 

   I woke up in a wooden bed, it was uncomfortable as Helheim. My head was throbbing, my arms were battered and bruised... 

   I looked around, it was a fairly large room... Four other beds excluding mine, they were all occupied, one other girl occupied the bed beside me and the others were occupied by boys, I recognized them all from my village which was wrecked by some weirdo with this massive elk dragon-thing, it fired rainbows and had an extremely powerful explosion. We couldn't really defend ourselves too well, we lived in a poor village and the only tamed-ish dragon was what we called a Decimater, I think the other islands called them stormcutters; either way, I fled at the first sign of trouble so, the majority of the village p.erished

   After going over what happened last night, I think it was last night anyways, I have no clue hwo long I was out, but, that was soon answered when a girl walked in, she looked like a right nerd.

   She asked how I was feeling, I answered simply, as soon as I said my honest answer, this whale of a man with one hand came in, screaming, "DON'T USE THOSE WORDS IN SCHOOL OF DRAGONS!!!" over and over again, at the first five, I was confused but then I was a little worried for this man's mental health with he climbed onto my bed and started screaming in my face... I just said I felt terrible...

   Eventually, he calmed down... And went away, the girl, who I now know as Heather clarified that he was the Headmaster of the school and was very, very strict on how the students speak on school grounds... Good Lord... Though, to be honest, I'm glad Heather agreed he was mad.

   Either way, she checked, what she called "the vitals" and sent me on my way. Second I came out, a cannonball was soaring through the sky, and this lads, is how I became a dragon rider, which I was very against but then... You'll see.

   This literal stick figure wearing dragon skin armour, he looked like a rip-off ninja and he had the over-grown lizard to go with it, it was "jet black" as they called it but, I personally called the colour of the elk rainbow dragon's soul.

   The guy, who was called Hiccup (weird name but, OK) told me to "mount the toothless and destroy the ships" I mounted the "Toothless" which was what he named the dragon and he mounted behind me, we flew the dragon and I got the hand of steering, pitch and firing.

   Eventually when Hiccup was finished, I freed this dragon, which, from what this woman, Valka (the only viking like human in this place called "The School") said that it was a "rumblehorn" and from the few seconds of flying with him (I called him Bolverkr), he was very, very slow but he was stable.

   Afterwards, this Valka one took me to the main school where I chose my first dragon, I opted for a monstrous nightmare.

 

*Magic timejump from D.emonic Squirrel Powers*

 

   It had been a few months, I had made a few friends in the school, p.sycho Headmaster hadn't changed, I had gotten a new a dragon, a Decimater, or a Stormcutter, I named him XWing, he and I were mates, he loved racing, and as did I. Within a few months, I had accumilated around 350 trophies in a few months.

   I was still a huge N.oob in comparison to the other professional racers with all their fancy shmancy racing gear so, I decided to go buy some, I was saving up gems to buy the stormcutter armour. It was pricy but, it was worth it, X's speed and agility improved alot so, I stuck with it.

 

*Another magic timejump from D.emonic Squirrel Powers*

 

   It had been a year and I had been through three other racing dragons, Blizzard, the woolly howl, Sneachta the Snow Wraith and Pup, another Snow Wraith until finally bought a Sand Wraith egg on sale, Ocean, the sand wraith became my permanent racing dragon after that.

   After nearly two years, I had joined another clan yet again after being rogue for months (Believe me, that's a story for another day), I really liked it, I had also gotten new racing armour, more like the type the other racers had, I now have seven sand wraiths, Ocean, Sandy, Emerald, Azriel, Cassian, Rhysand and Adamus.

   Currently, as of now, I am working towards trophy goals and keeping up with school work (another tale for another day with all the stuff we have to learn from Phlegma, Heather and the others) and improving my alternate selves.

 

Thats all from me,  StarGazer/Skunky/DemonicSquirrel

 

Oh yea, btw, i might do the little excess parts I did as a project xp

Most of my advice comes down to: Look at them!

 

Look at their form, and break the individual 'parts' down into shapes. Heck, just draw over them for that purpose, I'd say. The nightlights, depending on how they're posed, have some really simple shapes.

 

 

The way I see it, they're made from teardrops, a circle or a sphere, beans and spades. Why is this important? Because it's pretty much the same when it comes to an adult.

 

 

As you can see, the idea remains the same. One teardrop (a very long one because, big dragon!), a lotta beans in pairs of two, a spade for a tail, and as a bonus as the babies are missing em: a neck. The only things that really change here are the proportions.

 

Since you're good with reptiles, definitely keep their bodies in mind, crocodiles, lizards, snakes etc usually stick to 'long, long teardrop body') which is an excellent basis you can use to start out with. 

 

Wings are tricky as the swap from 'stick pole sketch' to 'full wing' can be a bit difficult. For wings: keep in mind that they're essentially arms, with hands, fingers and sometimes a thumb. Anatomy-wise, they're placed behind the arms on the fury dragons but I prefer them to be in front of the normal arms, but that's just a personal preference. Go with reference if you're not sure about the placement!

 

 

So in steps:

 

1. Long, long teardrop (think of a croc without legs?)

2. Add very basic 'wing arms' to define wing placement.

3. sketch the legs. One bean for the upper, one for the lower. Keep them about equal length.

4. give dat boi a head! I think it's easier to draw the head after the rest of the body imo.

5. add the smaller parts. the head nubs (beans?!?!), spines, tail spade, eyes, claws, wing membranes etc. 

 

Once you're satisfied with your sketch, you can do what you always do when it comes to fixing and/or colouring it. Hope it helps.
