More Dragon Legs

I'm still drawing dragon parts, copying from my teaching books. Here, I am using not only Peffer's but another one, "Drawing Dragons" by Sandra Staple. This compact and well-laid-out book has many useful examples to learn from. I have many more "draw dragons" books in my collection. I'm working in pencil but my standard-issue HB is a bit too hard to sketch with, leaving a rather pale line, so I will experiment with softer leads like the commonly used "B." The Staple book has lots of interesting looking variant "species" of dragons including close-ups of heads and faces. I'm really enjoying doing pictures of mythical and imaginary animals.

Pencil on sketchbook page, around 8" x 11", March 20-21, 2012.
