Hello, dear artists. In previous drawing lessons we showed you how to draw very popular characters from various fantasy worlds. So we have already drew a stone golem, phoenix and ogre. But today we will tell you about a much less well-known monster from fantasy. So, meet the lesson on how to draw a Yuan-Ti.


Step 1

We usually start drawing from the character’s skeleton. But as you can see, in this lesson the skeleton is not quite normal. So, first of all we sketch out the head with the help of a circle. Next, draw a neck that goes into the spine and a long, wriggling tail. Then sketch out the chest of our Yuan-Ti and arms.

Step 2

So, let’s add some volume to the figure of our being. First of all sketch out a horizontal line for the eyes. Next draw a hood and a wide neck. Draw out the torso, which flows into the tail. Next, outline the arms with simple geometric shapes and a saber clenched in the hand.

Step 3

Now let’s move on to the details. We draw the outlines of the head as shown in our example. Draw out the evil eyes, nostrils and big mouth. Connect the geometric figures from the previous step and outline the muscles of the Yuan-Ti. Make the outlines of the sabre more clean.
