How to Draw Toothless
Use the video and step-by-step drawing instructions below to learn how to draw Toothless from DreamWorks' How to Train Your Dragon. A new cartoon drawing tutorial is uploaded every week, so stay tooned!
Intro: Start off with a pencil sketch. In the beginning stages, don’t press down too hard. Use light, smooth strokes for sketching.
Step 1: Start by drawing a flat circle kind of like an oval near the top of the page. This will be the basic shape for Toothless' head. It doesn’t have to be perfect. It’s just a guide.
Step 2: Next, draw two intersecting lines, one vertical and one horizontal, inside Toothless' head. Curve the lines so that they contour to the shape of the head. The horizontal line should be close to the bottom. These will be construction lines that will help you place Toothless' facial features later on.
Step 3: Draw two small circles as guides for Toothless' eyes. Draw them sitting on top of the horizontal construction line and on either side of the vertical construction line. Don't draw the eyes too close together. They should be apart quite a bit.
Step 4: On top of Toothless' head, draw two arcs as guides for the ears. Make them tall but different sizes.
Step 5: Add two more arcs on either side of Toothless' head. These arcs should be small and be placed above the ends of the horizontal construction line. Draw two long curved lines under the head for the neck as well.
