Drawing Dragons Day Four: Popeye Bottoms

Drawing from instructions yesterday was interesting, but a little unfulfilling. Today, I decided to draw from memory what I had learned.

Turns out, I had not learned about feet at all.

And I forgot his tail. But I added that in.

I tried facing the dragon’s head the other way, and I liked that better.

In the end, though, his back leg reminded me of Popeye’s arm. So I added an anchor and called him “Popeye Bottoms.”

Once you see it, you can’t unsee it.
