How to Draw Shen Long (aka Shenron) from Dragon Ball

Today, we’ll focus on how to draw Shen Long from Dragon Ball step by step. By following these instructions, you’ll be able to capture the appearance of this legendary dragon accurately.

Shen Long’s Appearance

When drawing Shen Long (who’s original name is Shenron), focus on these key features:

  • Long serpentine body with mostly tail.
  • Flowing hair on his cheeks.
  • Antlers and sharp teeth.
  • Long flowing whiskers/barbels.
  • Traditional four-fingered Chinese dragon appearance.

For additional context, you can refer to a classic Chinese Lung Dragon to understand their similarities and differences, or simply draw Goku SSG2 and Ultimate Gohan next to Shen Long to add a story to your illustration.

About the Drawing Guide

This guide consists of a series of images, each representing a step in drawing Shen Long. By following these steps, you’ll gradually build up the complete image. Here’s how the guide works:

  • Red Color: Represents the current step you should be focusing on.
  • Black Color: Showcases the lines you have previously drawn.
  • Grey Color: Displays the basic sketch.

The guide includes 26 steps, starting with a basic sketch. In the final stage, you can choose to ink the sketch and gently erase the pencil lines after the ink dries. Inking the sketch helps in making the drawing look cleaner and more professional. Wait for the ink to dry completely before erasing the pencil sketch to avoid smudging.
