Dragon Anatomy Reference Sheet by KyriaDori Dragon Anatomy Reference Sheet by KyriaDori
EDIT: New Version made 2009 shinju-the-dragon.deviantart.c…
EDIT: Video Tutorial on Drawing Dragons www.youtube.com/watch?v=VrHZ5F… and www.youtube.com/watch?v=6HXEa2…

So...I wasn't getting sleepy when I was supposed to be getting sleepy...I had been planning to make these in December so I went ahead and did one. This is my basic dragon one. I will make another that's deeper, into the bone structure and muscles...that one will also include the way a dragon moves, running, jumping, climbing, swimming, etc.

A separate one will be made for wings and how a dragon would fly. Might as well put all this useless knowledge in my head to use I suppose. I do hope this is useful, if it help just one person...I have done my job.

This really helps with drawing hind legs, I've always struggled with that. Thanks!

I found it really helpful when you compared a dragon's hind leg to a human's on their toes.

Was looking for a back-to-tail diagram and wasn't sure for a reference whether to put "dragon butts" or "dragon tails" into google... put "dragon reference" and found this. Perfect!

Thanks a ton!
