TIP: You can use colors to highlight important details or make it easier to understand each step. Pencil and Ink The pencil I present here is a pencil I cleaned up by tracing over my original pencil, which was so confusing that even I found it difficult to understand. However, I made sure that I included all the details that needed to appear in the finished drawing. I knew that it would be easy to do a good inking from such a clean pencil. The short, curved lines were very useful for providing the bone with its characteristic appearance, volume, and texture.
The inking work, performed with short and open lines, is so thorough that we can almost see the full shapes only with these interior lines. Of course, when I did them, the external lines were visible, as well as my pencil, which I was tracing. TIP: Do not think of the drawing as a whole when carrying out these details. Draw a muscle as if it was the most important part of the drawing, and then move on to the next one. Illustrations need to be done with affection and dedication! Base Color Taking green as the base color of the dragon, we gave the lighter areas (belly and wings) a lighter color and the harder areas (spines on the snout and neck) a darker color.
