Miracle Yudo is a character in Russian fairy tales, known to many. But who really imagines what it looks like? In Russian folk tales, miracle yudo is a separate type of dragon with a large number of heads. The most famous of them is the Serpent Gorynych. The harm from these monsters, according to myths, is that they burn villages and fields. The fire-breathing hydra is what it is. How to draw a miracle Yudo in stages with a pencil, you can read below.


First of all, it is worth determining the creature's position in space, posture and, possibly, movement. At the moment it is a flying serpent with three heads, aggressive and angry. Once the idea is clear, you can get down to business. All you need is a simple pencil, eraser and paper.

The basis for the three-headed dragon

What the scheme consists of

As a basis, let's take balls and lines. It is enough to distribute them so that the key points of the image fall under the scheme. Instead of heads, knees and folds of wings, you need to substitute ellipses and circles. Joints and limbs will be lines. The scheme of how to draw a miracle yudo is ready.

Drawing the base to recognizablecharacter

Further - harder. It is necessary to make a simplified, but already recognizable image from the scheme. This will require attention to detail, but this is not the most painstaking process.

  1. Start with heads. We divide them visually into two parts, the half that is closer to the neck will be larger, the rest - the jaws and nose. Do not forget about the eyes. Since, when planning to draw a miracle Yudo with a pencil, an aggressive character was chosen, the whole appearance should speak of this. The eyes should be narrowed, the pupil should look like a dot or a vertical strip - everything is as narrow as possible. So, visually the creature will become angrier. It remains to add sharp teeth and a forked tongue - the head is almost ready.
  2. Moving on. Neck - should not be too thick or thin, but it is desirable that it be powerful, muscles can be drawn, showing the strength of the creature. It is worth trying to draw large scales or horny plates on the monster's neck, so it will become more colorful and closer to the dragons. The tail, like the neck, should show power.
  3. The dragon's body has a shape closer to a triangle - a wide chest and a narrow pelvis, all this can be reflected in the diagram with ellipses. When drawing large details, you need to focus on the horny plates - they will occupy most of these parts of the body.
  4. We make the lower paws “pumped up”, so that the muscles are visible there, the scales on them are small, but we don’t remember this yet. You can take any general structure of the lower limbs, but like a lizard, it is better not to draw hooves. Claws should be sharp, their minimum3, and it is better to draw the fourth on the heel, if it is visible.
  5. Wings for any dragons are typical - like a bat, which means you need to draw the membranes and bones. It should be borne in mind that the membranes are easy to draw only in a tense state. When folded or half-folded, they look more like a heavy fabric, which means you need to draw folds.

When the overall image is ready, you can start working on small details and working out the background. This is where all the patience that an artist has is needed. Without the little things, the image will seem unfinished.

Average result

Small parts

Whatever one may say, a masterpiece will be ready only when there are some little things on it that make it unique. That is, drawing a miracle Yudo is easy, but making the image complete is difficult. In this drawing, the dragon will have a mane and horns, as well as some small things, such as an additional row of small scales, shading the horn plates, or horns on the nose and "arrows" on the tail. No way without such nuances.

penultimate stage

One can write for a long time about how to draw a miracle yudo, especially given the specifics of the character. You can try different poses on the basics and change the look, change the character's character and, in the end, play with color. All this is interesting and exciting for any artist.
