The team of Easydrawingart.com is very fond of Japanese culture, and therefore this tutorial on how to draw a samurai is very significant for us. Earlier, by the way, we already drew a ninja – the worst enemy of any samurai. These two lessons will be very different on the principle of drawing, so we advise you to study both of these instructions.
So, let’s begin with the skeleton of the samurai, which should be depicted using very light lines. Repeat his stance and proportions as in the example from the artists of Easydrawingart.com or come up with a different pose.
Now let’s proceed to the details. Start by sketching the mask opening, then depict the eyes inside the mask opening. Create decorative horns on the head.
Now depict the visible part of the helmet that covers the back of the head and neck. Next, depict a decorative mouth on the samurai mask.
This stage will be both simple and complex. Here should depict a rope that is tied around the neck and holds a helmet on his head.
Let’s now make the samurai look more ardent and cool. Portray the pupils inside the eyes, and teeth inside the decorative mouth.
On the torso, depict the breastplate of the armor (do) and the shoulder pad (sode) on the shoulders. After that, depict the fabric covering the upper arms.
Let’s arm the samurai now. Using a few simple lines, draw the blades and other details of the katanas, as in the example from the artists of Easydrawingart.com.
Around the waist, depict the rope and scabbards hanging on the belt. Using simple lines, create the fingers, as in the example from the artists of Easydrawingart.com.
Next, depict the parts of the armor (kasazuri) covering the groin and upper legs. After that, draw another layer of armor called haidate.
Erase all auxiliary guidelines from the torso and depict horizontal lines on the kasazuri. At the moment, your samurai drawing should look something like this.
On the feet, depict the waraji sandals (and by the way, only samurai and ninja have the right to wear sandals over their socks). Next, depict wide samurai pants called hakama.
Now get rid of all the remaining auxiliary lines that we no longer need. Using a pencil of greater softness or ink, darken the samurai drawing.
At the last stage of the instruction about how to draw a samurai, the team of Easydrawingart.com will need to deal with colors. Using the color palette presented by the artists of Easydrawingart.com, paint the samurai.
