Hello dear readers and welcome to drawing tutorial on how to draw a tanto – a samurai dagger. If you like the theme of Japan, then perhaps you’ve already seen our drawing lessons about katana and wakizashi.
Here we use the same principle as in the lessons about katana and wakizashi – draw a slightly curved line.
Draw another curved line below the first line and connect them as in our example.
Now add some details to the blade such as the sharpening line.
Sketch out the guard and pommel as in our example.
Using crossing lines draw out the wrapping on the grip.
Erase all the additional lines, paint the grip and add shadows using short hatching.
It was a drawing lesson about how to draw a tanto step by step. Don’t forget to share this lesson and subscribe to us in social media. Thank you for reading and sayonara!
