I saw Dragon_queen's tutorial on Tohru and remembered to upload this tutorial. I've had this tutorial stored away on my computer for 3 months now...and I totally forgot about it. XD But here it is...finally. Here's a tutorial on my favorite character from "Fruits Basket", my handsome everlasting snow, Hatori Sohma. (And PS- I apologize for the small pictures.)

How to Draw Dr Hatori Sohma from Fruits Basket

how to draw dr hatori sohma from fruits basket step 1

STEP 1.

Draw out the head guideline as shown. You can think of it as an oval with a triangle connected to the bottom of it. And then there's a line down the middle, indicating the center of the face. You don't want to forget the two small lines for the neck and all the parallel lines for the eye guidelines.

STEP 2.

Here's where you must be very precise. In an anime character, the hair is one of the most important identifying features. You want to make the bangs long and let them fall into the face...but make sure that the part is more towards the left side. Then you can draw in the ear on the left as well.

STEP 3.

Finish the top of the head/hair. The top has a slight part on the top left and the hair is straight and falls like the rest of it. On the left side, the hair should curve slightly to wrap around the base of the neck. Then add some detail into the ear.

STEP 4.

Haha! Here's where all those ridiculous and messy guidelines come into play! Use the two parallel line towards the top to draw the eye. Above the eye, of course is the eyebrow, which should just graze along the top of the guideline. The nose should be directly where the circle on the bottom meets the center line. And then the mouth goes right underneath the nose, to the left of the center line. In this step, the eye and nose are key to capturing the true profile of Hatori. The eye is very mysterious and small while the nose is sharp. Try to mimic the features as much as possible. It would help if you have a reference picture of if you picture his face in your head.

STEP 5.

Erase all the blue guidelines EXCEPT the ones forming the neck and the jawline. All the others need to go. You'll know that you erased the wrong part when there's a random gap somewhere on your drawing. Then be happy because there's only one more step to go!

STEP 6.

This step is crucial to the entirety of the drawing. you want to add this extra detail to make it look realistic. Just a few zig-zag lines and sharp grooves will fill his hair with shadow/light. Remember where your light source is!
