Good day dear readers! In this drawing tutorial we will show you how to draw a katana. As you know Katana is a long Japanese sword with a slight bend and sharpened on one side. You probably have often seen katanas in hands of samurai and ninja.
We start with a long curved line. It will be the upper edge of the katana.
Now draw the lower edge of katana using another curved line. Here one side must be acute and the other obtuse.
Sketch out the guard (tsuba) and pommel (kashira). Now it looks like a katana.
Now draw the wrap (tsuka-ito) on the grip (tsuka). Draw it using crossing lines.
Next to the guard draw the collar of the blade (habaki) and grind ridge (shinogi).
Paint the wrap and add some shadows using hatching and some glare using short lines.
