Remember when I said I was going to upload more lessons one characters from The Last Airbender? Well, today I will be doing just that, starting with a new version of the main character himself. I will show you "how to draw Aang", step by step. With the old tutorial on Aang, I wrote out a full bio on him, and that is when I was only watching the series every once in a while. What I know now, makes more sense to me than it did back in 2008. What I really like is the incredible action that is in the new movie, and I think they chose the perfect kid to play Aang. Although, he doesn't seem to be as playful as the animated character in the series. As most of you know, Aang is what you call an Air Nomad, but he is also the Avatar that so many villages and people have been waiting for. They have been waiting for the new Avatar because the Fire Lord has been invading tribes left and right. The armies of the Fire Nation, just go where they please, and invade or raid villages and tribes for their own pleasure. Aang didn't always know he was the next Avatar. It was discovered what his fate was when he chose to play with Avatar Relics one day instead of regular things that a normal twelve year old boy would play with. Once it was determined who Aang was, he immediately started his Airbending training. One day, Aang was told that he was being moved to the Eastern Air Temple where he could finish his training, and because of that, he tried to run away with his flying bison named Appa. While in the process of running away, the two where caught in a storm, and to shelter Appa and himself once they plummeted in the water, he entered the Avatar state, which formed a humongous ice block. There he stayed frozen with his flying bison for one hundred years until two kids named Sokka, and Katara freed Aang from the ice block. From then on, he started his journey with his two new friends to learn the three other bending techniques which are Firebending, Waterbending, and Earthbending. The rest of the story can be told by watching the books, and chapters of the series. Or you can wait until the release of the movie on July 2nd. I hope you guys like this new tutorial on "how to draw Aang", step by step. I will be back with a lot more lessons on the way, so stay tuned in to see what they are. Peace out people, and have a happy drawing day!

How to Draw Aang

how to draw aang step 1

STEP 1.

Since Aang is going to be drawn in an action pose this time, you might find this lesson to be easier than the last one. Start by draw a few shapes that are for the head, and torso. Next add the one vertical facial guideline, and then draw the limb lines for the arms, and legs. Once the vertical line for the arm is drawn, you can then draw a shape for his hand.

STEP 2.

Use the vertical line to determine how long Aang's face should be. Once you've figured that out, you can then draw the shape of his head, ear, and face. Add the beginning arched lines for his eyes as well.

STEP 3.

Fill in the face by drawing out his eyes, nose, and smiling mouth. Add some shading inside of the mouth, and then draw in some eyeballs and colored pupils. Next draw the eyebrows, and then detail inside of his ear. Once the face is all set, you can start sketching out his arms or sleeves, and then draw a collar around his neck like so.

STEP 4.

Continue to draw out his arms, and incorporate the same lining for the torso and the top half of his clothes like you see here. Once that is done, draw the stripes on the right forearm, and then sketch out his left thigh or pants.

All you have to so here is draw the left hand, the arrow on the left hand, and the rest of his legs, and feet. Add the detailing like crease, and wrinkles on his pants, and then erase all the lines and shapes that you drew in step one.
