You can refer to the simple step-by-step drawing guide below
Start by sketching the dragon’s head. Water drop dragon eyeliner. Shade a circle inside it to form the pupil and contour around the eye using curved lines. Use a series of interconnected curved lines to draw the eye contour and the top of the head. The lines must connect at jagged points.
Draw the nose using a curved line and shading a small teardrop shape to indicate the nostril. Draw the open mouth using the “Y” shaped curves. Then use a series of curved lines joining at rounded points to complete the contour of the lower jaw. Draw curved lines at the corners of the mouth.
Draw “U” shaped lines to outline the teeth inside the open mouth. Then use a series of connected curves to start outlining the smoke coming out of the majestic jaws.
Continue drawing smoke or flames from the dragon’s mouth, using curved lines that meet at jagged points. Use curves and jagged edges to enclose an amorphous shape similar to the one in the first image.
Draw the neck and shoulders. First, draw the spikes on the back of the head using curved lines that meet at points. Then draw curved lines that overlap to form a sinusoidal neck. Overlap another curved line to start the shoulders.
Draw a curved line to indicate the remaining shoulder blades, then draw the dragon’s wings. Extend two curved lines from the shoulders. Then draw a large “U” shaped line to form the sail. Draw long curved lines along the length of the wing. Connect each of these to the line next to it or to the side of the wing using a short curved line. Finally, outline the rest of the wing with a curved line, going over the back of the neck.
Draw Smaug’s arm. Use overlapping curves. Notice how the fingers reach the tip of the pointed claw.
Draw the dragon’s rear legs and tail. Use a series of curves that meet at jagged points. Draw lines down the center of the tail to indicate the spikes.
Draw the treasure that Smaug is guarding. Outline the mounds using curved lines. Then use short curves and small ovals to give the coin pile some texture.
Color your Smaug cartoon. He is often depicted as red.
