I wanted to draw a baby dragon using My Paint software which is free.  Dowload it here. http://mypaint.intilinux.com/
  On the software's website I enjoyed looking at the artist's gallery filled with drawings from all over the world including Japan. Wow!  There many different styles from Manga to portraits.

With this instructable I hope to inspire you to draw a baby dragon that could make a delightful tee shirt.  This could make a sweet little gift.

My paint responds to mouse pad or laptop as well as graphic tablet  (mine monoprice).


my paint software (free)
GIMP (for editing) (free)

for tee shirt:
iron on sheets for your printer
printer ink
blank tee

Step 1: Step 1 Draw

Step one: Preparing your work area.   For the background click My Paint for the drop box menu to appear.  Choose layers click on back ground.  I chose gray linen but you could choose ruled paper or a plain background. On layer's tab choose plus sign to add a layer, that is clear but you can keep the bottom layer clean.  I chose Miranda marker ink from "all in one" pack for it's clean edge which was designed by  Ramon Miranda a famous artist who designed several brushes for My Paint.

Wow - this is so great! Thank you for the link too! Steph :)
Thanks for the kind words Steph. :)
Hmmm. Would a baby dragon be named <br> <br> <br>wait for it <br> <br> <br>&quot;Trogdorito&quot;?
Wow! How did you come up with that name? What does it mean?
&quot;<a href="http://www.homestarrunner.com/sbemail58.html" rel="nofollow">How to draw a dragon</a>&quot; is an episode of the online animation &quot;<a href="http://www.homestarrunner.com/" rel="nofollow">Homestar Runner</a>.&quot; <br> <br>The dragon's name is <b><i><a href="http://www.hrwiki.org/wiki/Trogdor" rel="nofollow">Trogdor the Burninator</a></i></b> (which must be said very loudly in a deep, gravelly voice). <br> <br>Presumably, a &quot;little Trogdor&quot; would be a &quot;Trogdorito&quot; (or Trogdorita if female :-).
How fascinating! Thank you for the link. I enjoyed reading about this little beast. :)
