Okay everyone, if you're looking at the thumbnail and notice something familiar about the character that stands before you, its because he is the very same vampire slayer we all know and definitely love. I read recently that G4 is coming out with a new animated series line up for 2011. One of the cartoon shows is going to be Blade. This tutorial that you see before you now, is going to show you "how to draw Blade", step by step. G4 is working together with Sony Pictures to bring us four new anime cartoons based on our favorite Marvel Comic book characters. Blade is not the only one to take stage; Iron Man, X-MEN, and Wolverine are also going to have their spots as well. Even though I don't know too much about what the new Blade series is going to be based on, I can almost guarantee that some of the old characters from the first movie will be making an appearance like Deacon Frost. I never actually read any of the comics based on Blade, but if I was a person that was into comic books, I bet I would enjoy reading the magazine. The vampire slayer that we know as Blade, is really named “Eric Brooks”. He was born into this world as a half blood which is basically half human, half vampire. Even though he has character traits of a vampire, he finds a way to fight his blood thirst, and go after Deacon Frost and his gang to seek out revenge for killing his mother. I think the anime series will be a hit, and if you watch G4 on the reg, be sure to keep an eye out for the new series coming your way. In the mean time, how about you tackle this tutorial on "how to draw Blade". I bet you have a blast creating one of the coolest characters ever made. Peace out people, I will be back shortly with one more lesson for you all.

How to Draw Blade

STEP 1.

Lets start with some basic lines and shapes to create a frame that you will be able to work with as you tackle this lesson on Blade. First, draw a small round shape for the head, and then draw in a neck line. Next, make a triangular shape for the torso, and attach the neck and head to it. Lastly, draw in the limb lines.

Now you will start having some challenging fun. Begin by sketching out the shape of his thick neck, and then draw in the beginning parts of his leather trench coat. AS you can see the main things that are visible right now is his shirt collar, and the collar to his jacket. Don't forget to sketch in some nice neck detailing.
