In this comics-style drawing tutorial, we will teach you how to draw a sumo ninja. In our previous tutorials, we already have drawn ninjas – Sub-Zero and Scorpion. But in this tutorial, we will draw not a usual ninja. So. let’s start this tutorial and learn how to draw a sumo ninja!
As always, we begin with a stickman (a man, made of sticks and circles). It’s a very simple but at the same time very important stage. Before you start to draw, we want to note, that in the first steps don’t need to press down too hard on the pencil. First, draw an oval as a guide for the head. Draw the lines of the facial symmetry. The horizontal line divides the face into two parts and helps to find the center of the head. The vertical line also divides the face into two parts and helps to draw the eyes. Then using lines sketch out the spine, arms, and legs.
Add some flesh to the sumo ninja. First sketch out the torso. Then using cylinders sketch out the arms and legs. Don’t forget, that the ninja must be pretty massive and fleshy. By the way, on Drawingforall.net we have another fleshy character – Eric Cartman.
At this step of the tutorial about how to draw sumo ninja start adding details. First, using the guidelines from the first step draw the eyes. Then, using curved lines draw the eyebrows. add some wrinkles below the eyes and above the eyebrows. Sketch out the lines of the mask and move to the next step.
Start adding details to the body of the sumo ninja. At first sketch out the lines of the straps on the shoulders. After that draw the deltoids, biceps, triceps, and forearm muscles. Sketch out the arm protectors. Draw the crossed fingers. Then draw the belt and loincloth and erase all the guidelines from the body.
Finish drawing the head of the sumo ninja. Draw the strip of cloth on the forehead of the ninja. Then darken the lines of the mask and draw the outlines of the chin. Further, draw the bow in the form of two leaves and add some folds of fabric on the sides of the mask.
Draw the elements of the suit and body of the sumo ninja. At first, using curved lines draw the muscles and veins. After that draw the fingers and arm protector. Then draw the nails on the fingers and add details to the arm protectors. Further, draw the patterns on the belt and move to the next step.
Add the details to the lower part of the body of sumo ninja. Add some folds to the pants. Then draw the sandals and fingers on the feet. Finish with the loincloth, add the patterns and folds.
Draw the katana of the sumo ninja. In order to get the katana as in our example, use 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.
Draw shadows. Our drawing is made in the style of comics, so we will also draw the shadows 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.
