Step 1: Know Your Dragons

You may not know this, but there's two types of dragons.

  • The European Dragon is the most common dragon. They're the ones you find on Disney movies, or the one on Shrek . They're big and very strong, and usually evil.
  • The Chinese Dragon is a more rare type to see. They're long and snake-like with small extremities. Usually they're involved with magic and good luck.

On this instructable I will show you the basics for both types
<p>Hi guys i drew this dragon.</p><p>Like it?</p>
<p>Hi guys this my dragon I drew. You like it?</p>
I admit it: I am OBSESSED with dragons. However, I believe that like humans, dragons do not come in different breeds. Have you read Eragon? It's where I get most of my ideas about dragons. :P
<p>Scratch my last comment but PetBennet is right and btw it is spelled ampithires</p><p>and what about lindworms and marsupial and frost dragons?</p>
U for got wyverns and ampatheters ( not sure I spelled that right but they have no legs and there covered in feathers)

Sorry, told you no.
¿¿¿??? is that the forums its ok i found them like two mins ago
&nbsp;Mine did not turn out like that but still awesome directions good job keep it up!
uhm, the two legged or armed dragons are wyverns. just thought i'd point that out.
I have no two legged dragons here. Chinese dragons usually have about 6 short limbs, like in the picture provided. Wyverns are another type of dragon, from the Middle Ages, usually from Europe.
how do put a picture on your account
