What’s up folks! Before I start the day I just wanted to say sorry to all those out there that waited for more tutorial submissions yesterday. I was working on getting my tuts up but was side tracked once again due to other obligations that became very important. Anyways, today I will start off with a special treat. Since everyone loves ninja, I wanted to make a tutorial based on a character that folks loved. As I racked my brain I finally came up with the perfect figure, and lesson to make. I will show you how to draw Ninja Gaiden, step by step. For those of you that know of this video game character, you should also know that it is a game that has been around since the eighties. The game Ninja Gaiden was a series that started out being exclusively for the NES game system, but it was also released for the Sega, Game Gear, Super NES, then later on down the road Ninja Gaiden was released for the Xbox, Playstation 3, and Wii. The main character is named Ryu Hayabusa, and he has always been the main character and heroine of the series. This lesson is going to show you how you can teach yourself how to draw Ryu Hayabusa from the Ninja Gaiden series. I know you will have fun with this tutorial because I had fun making it. I will be back, I promise, with more awesome tuts for you all to enjoy!

How to Draw Ninja Gaiden, Ryu Hayabusa

how to draw ninja gaiden, ryu hayabusa step 1

STEP 1.

Let's begin with a nicely shaped circle for the head, then add the facial guideline. When that is done you can draw out the body, as well as the guides for the arms and hands. He will be in an action pose.

STEP 2.

Sketch out the oval shape of his face, then draw out the lining for his ninja head mask. Be sure you include the small odd shapes on the side of the head like you see here.

STEP 3.

You will begin sketching out the detailing to the front part of his head mask. This should come out looking like a plated addition to the ninja gi. Draw the opening on the mask, as well as the eyes, and the crease lines where the nose is.

STEP 4.

You will now add what seems to be a scarf, but I think it's just the tail ends of the ninja mask wrapped around the neck, then swoops around the head for that action look. Add all the detailing to the material like so, then move along to step five.

STEP 5.

Now that the head and face is complete, you can begin drawing out the body. He is in a side pose which means his torso will be drawn from the side. Sketch out the nice toned shape of his back, as well as the shoulders, and arms. Of course you will need to add the muscle detailing too.

Sketch out the forearms, then begin drawing out the wrist plates which will also cover and protect the tops of his hands. Sketch in all the necessary definition like you see here.

Next and lastly, draw out his one visible hand which is in a clawed pose for a move that he is doing. Add detailing to the wrist plates, then you can start cleaning up the drawing by erasing your mistakes.
