How to Train Your Dragon is a great cartoon movie about Vikings fighting and killing dragons….until one of the kind-hearted Vikings learns to love one of the dragons, Toothless (a Night Fury dragon). I have put together an easy step by step drawing tutorial that builds up Toothless’ form with simple shapes. Find the easy Toothless, the Night Fury drawing lesson & instructions below. Good luck.
How to Draw Toothless Night Fury Dragon from How to Train Your Dragon
Start off the drawing by lightly sketching the basic shapes that make up Toothless’ face … an oval with a smaller oval at the bottom. The find the center vertically and horizontally, as pictured above.
Now draw the outside shape that both of those 2 ovals form. The top of the mouth is at the center horizontal line, as seen above. Draw 2 downward slanted lines for the dragon’s nostrils.
Draw the top of the nose with 2 inwards curved lines. Start drawing the eyes as well b drawing outwards curved lines. Also draw a letter ‘u’ like shape for the iris of the eye. Draw both ears by drawing a letter ‘c’ for the left ear and a backwards letter ‘c’ for the right ear. Draw a letter ‘m’ like shape at the top of the head…also draw a bunch of upside down letter ‘u’s along the vertical guideline at the top of the head.
Draw the bottom of the mouth with a half circle shape. Draw the bottom of the eye with a sideways letter ‘c’ like shape. Draw a small oval for the highlight of the eye.
Draw a curved line under each eye. Lightly sketch a smaller mouth shape inside the mouth — this will be the gums. Lightly sketch the ear shapes as well.
Now draw the ears darker, but on the inside of the ears make a squiggly line. Draw the teeth by drawing circle-like shapes along the bottom row and more triangle-like shapes up at the top of the mouth.
