How to make a dragon using barriers!

hello! thank you for clicking on my post! today i shall show you how to make a dragon using barriers!
You can use this for pretty much anything!

DISCLAIMER: This is a long tutorial, making this slightly time-consuming.


(look familiar?)

To start your dragon, place a rectangular white barrier, set the alpha to 1, and no border. (This applies to all barriers.)

Now add two large white circles, on in the front, and one in the back. (make the one in the back slightly higher.)

Now add a long rectangle on the front circle for your dragon’s neck.

Add your dragon’s head and snout using square barriers.

Now give em some horns using thin long white barriers. Place these on top of the head.

Now for the legs, add one rectangle on the bottom of the front circle on the body. Tilt it to the right ever so slightly.

Add the dragons forearm using a smaller rectangle that’s tilted to the left.

Now for the backlegs. Add a wide rectangle tilted to the right.

Now add a rectangle right below the one you’ve just placed, but have it tilted to the right instead.

Add the dragons feet and ankles. To do this, add a straight vertical barrier and then a horizontal barrier.

Now you’re done with the legs! Now lets add the dragons tail. I wont go too much in depth on how to do the tail, but sorta add a lot of small barriers together to make it look curvy.

Now you can start to see the dragon take form! Now lets give them some wings. To do that add a large barrier, a different color than what you’ve been using for the body. Then add a smaller barrier to connect the larger barrier to the body.

Now add skinny barriers going along the outside of the wing. Make them the same color as your dragons body.

Add the same skinny white barriers going down the middle of the dragons wing. I used 2 but your can use more.

This part is optional, but add your dragons underbelly using a different color than the body. I added a long barrier on the neck and belly.

Now, using a textbox, add the dragons eyes. You could use an ‘O’ or a ‘U’ or really anything! I used a ‘<’.

One again using a textbox, give the dragon a smile! :]. I used a ‘__________/’.

Now you could leave it there, or you could give the dragon a tongue like I did! I used a square barrier and a circle barrier. Line them up like this:

Now add a line on they’re tongue using a textbox that says ‘|’

Now for the final step. Add a text box that says ‘//’ and make it pink. Put it on the dragon’s cheek.
