One of the more interesting characters from the anime series Gurren Lagann is Kamina. He is a character from a village called ‘Giha” which is located underground, and like a lot of dreamers or individuals that long for adventure or challenge, he wants so badly to leave his dwelling and see what the surface above has to offer. One of the things I like most about Kamina is his interesting tattoos on his shoulders and upper arms. They are what you call very cool tribal patterns that seem to be a bit trendy for an anime/manga figure. He is usually seen wearing no shirt, which is why his tattoos are exposed, and he also has matching blue colored hair to go with his deep blue colored tats. Oh, did I forget to tell you that you will be learning "how to draw Kamina", step by step? Well I guess I was too busy telling you how intriguing this character is even though he has a real cocky personality. I’m still very new to this series so bear with me if I miss some of the more important details. I would appreciate that you keep me in the dark a little so I am surprised with what I discover for myself. I will however provide you with this tutorial on drawing Kamina, and I think you will find that the coloring technique is awesome. Have fun guys and aidos!
