  • Drawing pencil
  • Eraser
  • Pencil sharpener ( or a sharp pencil!)

What else you could do after this painting:

Would your dragon collect treasure? Some dragons were supposed to live in lairs that were lined with gold and jewels! Have a go at drawing some of the jewels and gold that your dragon might keep.
