One of the wonders of art is that you are totally free to create your very own fantasy world – and have the creativity to invent each and every detail. Have you ever come across a cat dragon on your travels? This fantasy creature can become a reality in just a few short, simple steps – let’s get started!
Step-By-Step Images and Instructions
Begin by taking a black pen, and adding an oval shape to the center of your page.
Add two small semicircles, one on each side, and add a dash at an angle above each of these, creating sassy eyebrows.
Then, add a small, upside-down triangle beneath these shapes for a cute nose…
And bring down two lines, curving off to either side, from this bottom point. Add a long “U” shape underneath for a nose, and split this in half with a curved horizontal line.
Move to the left of the shape, and bring the line up slightly, before adding a tall, thin triangle. Continue the line just to the right of this.
Extend this line across and down, and then add another triangle, this time with a wavy line for the base, and another, smaller triangle inside this.
Continue the curved line on the other side of this triangle, and bring it across to meet the bottom of your original circle.
Now add two more triangles to the outside line, one on either side of the two-tier triangle set.
Add another curved line extending from the bottom, just to the right of the center of the circle.
At the bottom of this line, add another curved line, with the top flicking to the right, and the bottom curving across in a “C” shape.
Now add another short, curved line extending from the right of the face. At the end of this, add a sharp, jagged shape to create a dragon wing.
Divide the shape by adding a pointed triangle shape to the center of the wing.
Now, bring a thin “U” shape at a 90-degree angle extending from the short curved line you drew earlier. From the top of this, add a line angled up towards the top right-hand corner of the page, and then flick the line down to a point, and back down to the top of the wing.
Now bring another line down from the bottom of the wing, curving down towards the bottom right corner of the page, and then curving back down to meet the bump at the bottom.
Add a set of curved lines extending from the back to meet in a point, creating a tail for your dragon.
Add a series of spikes along the tail, and up the back of the dragon.
Now, add a circular armhole just below the wind, and bring two lines forward to create the paw of your cat.
Follow this with another paw to the left of the line…
And add another leg to the left of the first…
And tidy up the lines so they are clean and neat.
Use a pink pen to add color to the inner shape of the two-tier triangle.
Now, use a yellow pen for the spikes along the back and tail, as well as the horn on top of the head.
Using a red pen, add color to the inside of the mouth, and the top wing.
Next, use a light red pen for the second wing…
And a light green pen for the main body of the dragon.
Voila! Have you created a cat wearing a dragon costume, or invented a whole new fantasy creature? The choice is yours – and the only limit you have is your own imagination!
