In this drawing guide, I will try to show how to draw a dragonborn, or rather I will describe the process of how I draw a dragonborn.

As you probably already know, this is a race in Dungeons and Dragons. Dragonborns look like dragons standing on their hind legs. They took a humanoid shape while losing wings and tail. The first of them had scales of shades inherent in dragons of different species, but generations of continuous crossbreeding led to the appearance of a single color.

 

Stage 1

First of all, I depict a skeleton, it’s easiest to start with it because then you need to build the body on it. By the way, I underline all the lines in blue to make it easier to understand what is happening at a particular stage.

By the way, what is your favorite race and class in RPG? Regardless of whether I play games from D&D or Pathfinder, I always choose a human warrior, because it’s easier for me to associate with him.

    According to the D and D 5e rules, dragonborns don’t have tails. 1/2 dragons do.
