Alright people, I know a lot of you love to play tons of video games nowadays, so today I am going to make an awesome tutorial on how to draw the bad character Kratos from God of War! I haven’t really played this game, but I watched my brother and his friend play it. It’s like a third person game. You get to be a character named Kratos and attack enemies. I’m not too keen on what the game is about; all my brother told me is that he was the captain of Sparta's army and lives to serve the Gods for forgiveness. All this happened after he was a servant for Ares. That is all I know for now but I can tell you that this tutorial was a request from a few members and I never forget a request. Alright, maybe sometimes I do, but definitely not this time. A member asked me to make a tutorial on this character so I did. I loved the concept of this video game character. He looks so mean and awesome! Oh yeah did I forget to tell all of you that I seen "The Dark Knight" movie? I LOVED IT! The movie was so epic and dark. You don’t understand how awesome it was! Anyways, know that I’m back on the Kratos tutorial topic; I want to tell you how this drawing started out…get ready for a long Dragon_Queen adventure. I looked at several pictures of Kratos to use as a reference. I can tell you that he was a really difficult character to draw and make a pose of that can capture his power. I sketched out like three different versions of him in odd poses but nothing looked good. Finally I came up with this one. It took me like 2 hours just to get him in this pose. Anyways, I scanned the image into Photoshop and worked on it some more. I wanted to make the image realistic like for his skin, cuts, chains, clothes. After I’ve succeeded at that I worked on the background. The older background looked like parchment. I didn’t like how it was so…blah. I got a picture that I found online and pasted it behind Kratos. I photo manipulated the background to make it look like Kratos was right there in it. It took me a while but eventually I succeeded and conquered this difficult goal. I absolutely love the way he came out down to the last drop of blood. This tutorial will show you how to draw Kratos from God of War step by step. I hope you like this lesson, I worked extremely hard on it and I also hope that you will too when trying to draw Kratos out. I will be back with more fun lessons so stay tuned kids there is more on the way.

How to Draw Kratos

how to draw kratos from god of war step 1

STEP 1.

Okay start this step by drawing out the guidelines and shapes to form a mannequin like frame fro Kratos. You will draw out a small circle for his head and then add the facial guidelines. Once that is done sketch out the shape of his muscular torso and be sure to add the chest lines and six pack guidelines. You will then draw out the half shapes of his arms and then the shapes of his legs and parts of his shins.

STEP 4.

You have now made it to step four and I know it must have been a challenge so far. But no worries because you are close to being done. What you will do first in this step is detail his face better and then start adding definition to his torso which includes his stomach. You can then add his chest nipples and add the lining for his red like tattoo. Add the chains on his left forearms and then finish the shape of his sword that is in his left hand. Detail his loin cloth and then his left shin and foot. Before you leave you will also need to add more detailing lines to the right sword.

You have now made it to step five and now that you are here you will finish everything up. You will first add the loose chain on his left arm and detail the blade a lot more including his hand. Once that is done draw out the rest of the tattoos on Krato's body and then add some detailing design on his belt. Detail and define his right blade and then add some wrinkle lines to his loin cloth. You will add a chain around his bottom leg and then erase all the guidelines and shapes that you drew in step one.
