A simple mention of the mythical fire-breathing oversized lizard that we all know to be dragons can incite several different reactions. Back when people lived in a time of superstitions and witch trials and monsters of all forms, dragons inspired fear, dread, and hopelessness. But through the years, with science debunking practically every myth, dragons have been regarded merely as an important component to history and looked on with awe by kids who find them “cool” and “awesome.”

Well, have a look-see at just how cool and awesome these creatures are in this collection of 8+ elegant dragon silhouettes. These Free Silhouette Designs come in JPG, AI Illustrator, and TIFF formats.

Dragon Silhouettes 5 Ways

Just a few brief moments of scrolling up and down will tell you that there’s quite a variety of designs featured in this collection of dragon silhouettes.

  • Other Than the Usual

When you think of silhouettes, what comes to mind are all-black images, right? Like defined shadows. Well, the opting for a dark gray in “Flying Dragon Silhouettes” over the usual black shows you that you can bend the rules every once in a while. “Free Dragon Silhouettes,” on the other hand says that you can bend said rules even further.

  • Gone from the Neck Down

“Dragon Head Silhouette” is pretty much a “what you see is what you get” type of deal.

  • Serpentine

This may be a tad blasphemous to the memory of this glorified winged lizard (oops); but don’t you think that “Tribal Dragon Silhouette,” “Cute Dragon Silhouettes,” and “Dragon Vector Silhouette” show the dragon to be essentially no more than more evolved snakes? Just saying.

  • “Cute” Dragons

The more compact sizes and rounded appendages of the three featured in “Cartoon Dragon Silhouettes” show us that yes, dragons can be cute.

  • Mighty, Majestic

“Dragon Tattoo Silhouette” and “Simple Dragon Silhouette” are more like the typical depictions of dragons: tall, proud, powerful. (Did we just humanize dragons? Gasp!)
