If you’ve ever been enchanted by the world of “How to Train Your Dragon“, you’re in for a treat. Learning how to draw the Triple Stryke Dragon, a medium-sized Strike Class dragon, can be both rewarding and a test of your artistic prowess. Let’s embark on this sketching journey together!
Triple Stryke’s Distinct Appearance
Understanding the unique aspects of the Triple Stryke will set the foundation for your drawing:
- Build: Stockily built resembling an arachnid, with a bipedal and digitigrade stance.
- Back: Armored plates that mirror an armadillo’s appearance.
- Face: Two large ear-like appendages and a pointed nose.
- Tail: Its defining feature – a thick, braided tail that can split into three individual tails, each ending with a scorpion-like stinger.
- Forelimbs: Scorpion pincer-like forelimbs adding to its intimidating look.
Sketching Tips: Always begin with a light pencil for the initial outlines, focusing on proportions and positioning. Refine your strokes as you progress, defining the features more distinctly.
About the Guide
Our guide is designed to be intuitive and user-friendly. The color-coded system aids in understanding the steps better:
- Red Color: Represents the current step.
- Black Color: Showcases the lines from previous steps.
- Grey Color: Displays the basic sketch for proportions.
This guide consists of 11 steps, beginning with a foundational sketch. Once you’ve completed your sketch, you can opt to ink it. Make sure to wait for the ink to dry before erasing the pencil lines to avoid smudging.
The Triple Stryke’s appearance was primarily inspired by scorpions. Some early concept art even depicted the dragon with an underbite, a feature later omitted.
