This Guy’s One Stroke Snake Painting Technique Is Almost Like Magic

Japan-based artist Nikko is displaying his wonderous one stroke technique on YouTube. It begins with short, seemingly effortless, strokes before turning into a detailed Chinese dragon.

Dragon of the Autumn Family has been drawn since ancient times in China.

The body of the dragon is divided into three parts, “The neck reaches the arm, the arm reaches the waist, and the waist reaches the tail,” Nikko writes. “In other words, it is said to be a flowing sequence of creatures.”
