Hello Everyone!

This is my blog about drawing dragons and dragon culture. I am always adding new content, so subscribe to my RSS feed or check back frequently. I hope you enjoy what you find here!

I also have a patreon account, which is a subscription based site that frequently gives exclusive content to subscribers. Patrons get access to my work in progress files, tutorials and more. If you are interested in supporting this blog, please visit my patreon page at:

This is a blog about how to draw dragons, or winged creatures that vaguely resembles dragons. The core of this site is made up of tutorials on drawing dragons. You can also find some videos and other art work by me or others here. My name is Damien Mammoliti, and I’ve been drawing since I was a little kid. I’ve been interested in fantasy art for quite some time, and this website is the culmination of several years of learning how to draw dragons and creating dragon inspired artwork.

Tutorials on this blog have been organized into sections that should be accessible from the navigation menu at the top of the page. Occasionally, if I post something more conceptual or philosophical in nature it will be posted under “blog” rather than “tutorials”.

As with most websites, you can use the search function at the top right to look for specific subject matter if you don’t find what you’re looking for via navigation. If you have any questions please leave a comment either here on in my email listed on the about page.”

Welcome to my blog! I’m a fantasy artist, and I love dragons.

I’ll be using this blog to talk about the art of dragons from an artistic point of view, as well as the art of creating dragon related content. I have a series of tutorials on how to draw dragons, for both traditional and digital media. I also gush about my other favorite subjects: fantasy art, fantasy fiction, and role playing games.

If you’re wondering why my paintings look so much better than my written word: English is not my first language, so you’ll have to bear with me on that end.

So welcome in! And enjoy your stay!

Dragon art is one of the most popular niches in fantasy art. But it’s also a very tricky subject to draw. Our artists here will give you all of the tips and techniques to draw dragons that are easy to understand, but also look great!

We have hundreds of free tutorials, as well as original artwork available for sale. We have a large stock of traditional media such as ink and markers, plus many other supplies.

If you are an artist who loves dragons, this is THE shop for you. We offer a wide range of dragon tattoos that are affordable for any budget.

First, let’s get some terminology squared away. When I say “dragon,” I don’t mean a literal dragon. I mean a creature that is like a dragon in the sense that the Loch Ness Monster is like a plesiosaur. The creature may or may not fit our current definition of “dragon.” It might look more like an ant-eater, or it might look more like an iguana. It might be able to breathe fire, or it might have no breath weapon at all.

Troglodyte means “hole dweller.” So troglodyte dragon would mean “dwelling in caves and other dark places” — which describes most dragons. (The few exceptions include the winged dragons of Chinese legend, who were considered divine.)

Dragon-like means roughly “resembling a dragon without actually being one.” This can describe anything from a Komodo Dragon to Bigfoot.*

So when I talk about dragon art, what I really mean is troglodyte art. And when I talk about troglodyte art, what I really mean is a dragon-like image that is clearly not meant to be taken literally as a dragon.

The dragon is a pervasive symbol. It appears in legends and myths from many different cultures. They have appeared in the arts and pop culture for hundreds of years, often as a negative symbol for evil.

In fantasy art dragons are often depicted as creatures of pure power, strength, and ferocity. The dragon is an enduring symbol representing powerful good and evil characteristics. Dragons can be associated with greed, envy, or pride because of their great wealth and power. They are also symbols of war, violence, chaos and vengeance.

The evolution of dragons has been traced back to ancient times throughout many different cultures in Asia and Europe. Dragons have played important roles in nearly every culture that has ever existed on Earth.

The dragon was an important symbol used by the European nobility, who were largely responsible for the development of heraldry.

Dragon tattoo designs are easily as diverse as any other type of tattoo. There are, however, several qualities that most dragon tattoos share in common. They tend to be large, covering a lot of skin area. Many dragon tattoos include more than one dragon, and often include other figures or animals such as humans or birds. Dragon tattoos also often include one or more elements of Chinese mythology.

Tattoo artists love drawing dragons because they’re fun to draw and challenging to execute well. Dragons are also popular because they symbolize strength and power; many cultures consider them to be symbolic of good luck, and these properties hold true for dragon tattoos as well.

Tattoo artists have the choice of drawing either realistic-looking dragons or fantastical dragons that incorporate magical elements like fire and lightning. Often both styles are used in the same design by a single artist, with realistic-looking dragons placed alongside fantastical dragons in order to create a bolder image. The use of shading and color can also make a huge difference in the appearance of a dragon tattoo; some designs rely solely on black ink for their effect, while others incorporate various shades of color.*
