Drawing masters of combat can sometimes be complicated if you are a novice artist. That is why I like drawing simple characters no matter what type of class they are. I will teach you "how to draw ninja”, step by step. I think ninjas are so cool, and I always have. I can remember growing up with my uncle who used to talk about ninja all the time. He had a big collection on ninja swords or katanas, as well as ninja Gi. One of the things that I love about the ninja is their simple uniform style. They are very graceful looking, which is due to the fact that they are also very aloof, and light. Ninja are also called “shinobi” and these men were used back in 12th-19th century Japan. Ninja are men that are trained in special tactical skills such as espionage, sabotage, infiltration, and they are also excellent assassins. I wanted to draw a different version of a ninja, that is not too cartoony, bit also very accurate. I think you guys will like learning "how to draw ninja", step by step. Have fun with this submission, and I will be back shortly. Peace folks, and happy drawing.
