Art Tutorial: Anpanman

Hi guys! I’m finally done with my SAT prep classes for the summer and I’m back with another tutorial! My little cousin’s favorite show to watch is Anpanman so I decided to make a tutorial on how to draw Anpanman since I’ll be visiting my cousins in Vancouver this week. Anpanman is the main character of Soreike! Anpanman¬†whose head is a bun made by Uncle Jam. His name comes from the fact that his head is made of bread filled with red bean paste. This bun is called an anpan.

First, draw a big circle for the head.

Art Tutorial: How to Draw Tails Kitty (Tails in Cat Form)

I’m back with a new art tutorial this week which I haven’t done in a long time! Today I will be showing you how to draw Tails from the Sonic series. He is an 8-year-old fox¬†with two tails,¬†hence the nickname. He is known to be Sonic’s sidekick¬†and best friend,¬†as well as a mechanical genius.¬†He is able to use his two tails to propel himself into the air like a helicopter¬†for a limited time.

Start by drawing a big circle shape for the head guide, and then sketch in the facial guidelines as well as the body guide.

Now begin drawing the actual structure of his head and cheeks. Make sure to draw the chunk of hair that real Tails has on his head.

Anime Recommendation: Fullmetal Alchemist

photo

This is my freehand drawing of Edward and Alphonse Elric from the anime series Fullmetal Alchemist. My friend was trying to convince me to start watching anime and this is the first one that he recommended and the first one that I watched. I would definitely recommend this series for new anime watchers as well, besides the fact that there are a LOT of episodes. There is a total of 51 episodes in the original series and a grand total of 64 episodes in the reboot series Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood. Compared to other popular anime series such as One Piece and Naruto, this number of episodes may not actually be as overwhelming (One Piece has 516 episodes altogether and more to come), but it can still take a good part of your summer to finish watching both.¬†Set in a fictional universe in which alchemy¬†is one of the most advanced scientific techniques, the story follows the Elric brothers Edward¬†and Alphonse, who are searching for a philosopher’s stone¬†to restore their bodies after a failed attempt to bring their mother back to life using alchemy. This series is full of action and emotional feels. It also has a bit of blood so if you get queasy at the sight of blood I don’t recommend watching. If you decide to watch this series then I hope you enjoy and stay awesome ninjas!

How to Draw a Moon Dragon

Here is a dragon that brings back the traditional style of dragon with the serpentine look similar to the Chinese dragons.

1. To start, we will need to draw a shape that is circular for the dragon’s body pose of motion.¬†Begin with one single stroke that is capped with a head shape and sectioned off with an oblong shape for the moon dragon’s body.

2. ¬†For step two, you will begin sketching out the dragon’s head from a profile state. Start with the jaw, and then continue on from there by incorporating the snout, face, and horns.

3. Now you will sketch in the detailing to the face like the scale lines that flow down the horns and face. When that is done, draw in the eye and the nostrils, then carefully sketch in the frills behind the jawline and for the beard.

4. Now that the head is complete, you can proceed with drawing the first part of the body which starts with the neck, then turns into the chest and mid section. Draw the front legs like so, and be sure to sketch in the detailing for the legs as well.

5. Instead of the body, draw out the wings in a way that covers the body completely in a cloak-like fashion. The edges of the wings should be drawn with a wispy cloud-like design, or you can choose to go with a style that you think would look better. Add detailing throughout, then proceed to step six.

6.  Only one more drawing step after this one, so hang in there. What you will need to do now is draw out the rest of the body which is the bottom section and the tail. Draw the back leg in a relaxed manner, then sketch out the talons. Add detailing to the foot like so, then you are done here.

7.  Lastly, draw out the other wing that will only be visible because it is wrapping on the body like you see here. Make the edges the same way you did previously, then sketch in the final definitions and detailing all over the body where needed. Erase the mistakes that you might have made along the way.

8. Now all you have to do is color or shade it in. Here is what the entire image looks like all shaded in. I hope you liked this lesson, because I know I loved drawing this dragon.
