Crayola Twistables Coloring Art Video
I decided to color this Dragon in Red as a fire Dragon which is always a good idea as Dragons can be any color from Green to Blue and Purple to Yellow and even Black or White. So with that in mind don't feel obliged to stick to the color scheme as in my video below. I used the Crayola Twistables for coloring this Dragon design and they always blend quite well together.
You will need the Red, Orange and Yellow for the Dragons skin color and the backs of the wings will be a brown with highlights of yellow.

Drawing a Dragons head takes a lot of practice at times and this drawing video will show you how to tackle the subject head on.

Sketch A Dragons Wing
When you start to draw the wings of your Dragon you can draw them like this or look to other real life animals such as Bats for inspiration for drawing wings. Also drawing the wings of any Bird is also quite useful as the underlying structure is similar and you can still get away with that for your Dragons wings. Try drawing wings outstretched and folded and from different angles and you'll get it right eventually as it takes time to draw certain things.
Also see the drawing a claw hand example too to give you an idea....

A Time Lapse Drawing By YouTube Artist Kazanjianm
I thought I would share another YouTube artists drawing video for a change as this Dragon is more bat like and he shows you the construction lines before he begins to solidify the whole drawing and he has the wings down to a "T" with them incredible Bat like wings which are always the best way to draw them for Dragons. YouTube user Kazanjianm has created a very nice Dragon idea that is a nice simple drawing that anyone can follow, even kids when they are bored can follow along and draw this. The video is a time lapse drawing but you can still pause it and try and take the route of drawing something similar along with this quite prolific Artist.

Just thought I'd add this video aswell on drawing a Dragons eye which you may find useful. Drawing eyes for Dragons can be different each time you begin to draw them so keep this in mind when pencil sketch the eyes of a Dragon as there will be Dragon scales around the eyes much like a Lizard.
