As always, we begin with stikmen (a man, made of sticks and circles). It’s very simple but at the same time very important step. Before you start to draw, we want to note, that in the first steps don’t need to press down too hard on a pencil. First draw an oval as guide for the head. Draw lines of the facial symmetry. The horizontal line divides the face into two parts and helps us to find the centre of the head. The vertical line also divides the face into two parts and helps us to draw eyes. Then using lines sketch out spine, hands and legs.
Add some flesh to the sumo ninja. First sketch out the torso. Then using cylinders sketch out the hands and legs. Don’t forget, that the ninja must be pretty massive and fleshy. By the way, on drawingforall.net we have another one fleshy character – Eric Cartman.
And we continue our tutorial about how to draw sumo ninja. At this step we start to add details. First, using the guidelines from the first step draw the eyes. Then, by using curved lines draw the eyebrows. add wrinkles below the eyes and above the eyebrows. Sketch out the lines of the mask and move to the next step.

At this step we add detailes to the lower part of the body of sumo ninja. Add some folds to the pants. Draw sandals and fingers on the feet. Finish with the loincloth, add the patterns and folds.
At this step we draw a katana of the sumo ninja. In order to get the katana as in our example, use the smooth and straight lines. Look at your drawing and compare it with our example. If you found some mistakes, then erase the failed part of the drawing and draw it correctly.
At this step we draw shadows. To get realistic shadows use dark and hard lines. Our drawing is in the style of comics so that the shadows we are also going to draw in the style of comics. Paint over the strap on the forehead. Add contrast shadows to the katana. Draw some shadows at the torso and legs. Sumo ninja ready.
