How to Draw Bearded Dragon
Start by creating a pointed curved oval and shape it into a head.
Now, form a smile by drawing a semicircle and adding curved lines to create fur texture around the neck.
To create the eyes, draw a small circle and slightly bigger circles. Draw another circle a bit farther from the eyes, as shown in the picture.
Sketch the forelimb with two simple lines for the upper and lower parts of the leg, adding a rounded shape for the foot with fingers.
Add another forelimb as shown in the picture.
Draw the hind leg similar to the forelimb, with more pronounced bends for the thigh and calf, ending in a larger foot.
Add another hind leg as shown in the picture.
From the rear of the body, draw a long, gradually thinning tail that curves up and then back down.
Add lines and shapes to the body to represent the bearded dragon’s unique patterns and textures.
Add spots and stripes on the body of the bearded dragon.
Add details to the tail of the bearded dragon’s body.
Color the bearded dragon in appropriate shades, typically including browns, tans, and greys, and add shadows for a three-dimensional effect.
