For this iteration I decided to practice drawing some dragons. I drew the sequence of guides/templates (1-4), up in the top and then I picked the one I wanted to start with. The first one was the simplest. One big circle for the main part of the head, and one smaller circle for the muzzle.
As I write this it's dawning on me (wonderfully) that the muzzle and head (or brain-case area) can have the same proportion. Which sounds like an awesome variation that I'm looking forward to trying!
The second variation on this page is also pretty simple. It's the same thing as the first one, with just some extra space between the 2 circles.
The third is me actually starting to experiment, at least in my own opinion, and makes the idea look a little strange.
The fourth is very similar to the third, the smaller circle is taller and narrower, and looks equally strange to me. That's why I picked it.
I'll do the other 3 in similar fashion later.
After fleshing out this guy, I realized that it doesn't look that strange. It actually looks pretty organic, which surprised me! I hurried to the internet and looked up some photos of lizards, and found that a lot of them have this head arrangement. This type of practice is helping me to learn real-world facts that can help me in my future art! Hooray to realistic lizard drawings!
Well... this guy isn't based on anything in particular. I didn't use any refs or anything. I was just drawing intuitively.
Hope this is enjoyed!
