Today I am going to show you how to draw a classic Disney character that you might not know even existed. It is Elliot, the dragon from Pete’s Dragon….not the one that is out right now, but the one from the 1970s. If you went out and saw the new one, you are going to love the old one. It was one of my favorites growing up. Have fun learning how to draw this cute dragon.
