I don’t really draw dragons all that much, but it was mighty fun! Thanks!

This is awesome! Overall I would've established the structure a little more in the drawing before going to shading to not run into any problems down the line. A good preparation prevents poor performance :)

Lovely job! Again, looking at my 6-step video here on Proko will definitely help you add structure to the designs.

Awesome design here Sam! A little more advanced advice, but I would say to balance the silhouette a little more. Now everything feels right leaning heavy, if that makes sense. Open up the wing on the left side as well and add some interest there to counter balance the pose.

Very fun doodles here Paulina! Next time try to indicate some contour lines to add some volume to these designs.

Swamp dragon... it's a dragon that lives in a swamp... that's pretty much it.

Awesome! Try indicating some more volume by implying simple form first before rushing into detail. This will make the cool designs you have so much more epic!

I started to draw dragons only a few weeks ago but I'm trying my best (I draw a bit cartoony, want to be an animator someday). Wanted to know what you think about movement on that sketch, cause this is the most important part for me now.

Really good already Eugene. Try to study how wings work (from bats and birds) to get a better idea on how you can pose your wings. This will make your design come to life alot more already!

Posting again :P A little WIP of one of my own dragon species that I started during the stream, these guys are related to monitor lizards. This specimen is a sub-adult (3 m long), the horns aren't quite grown in yet and the wings are still not full size.

Very cool drawings Oliver! I would say to not focus to fast on shading and a little more on structure first (simple forms) to help with the volume of the designs. Then applying shading on top of that later will make these designs sing!

I love drawing dragons since I can remember, I want to get better also at digital painting specially on monster design!

Hey there @thyladelic9 great job! Because of the profile view and the way you drew the horns or scales on the neck, it feels a little flat. If you rewatch the video I have on 6 steps to drawing, you'll see how you can imply a little bit more volume with simple shapes and apply deatil on top to breath a little more life into the drawing :)

Some really good stuff here Joseph! The main thing I'd recommend going forward is styding at real life animal anatomy (like bat wings and alligator skulls) to make your design look more believable and functional.

Lovely stuff diego! You have a good eye for shapes, I would say focus a little more on the simple shapes in perspective first, maybe even block it out to give you design a little more volume, then add those nice details on top :)
