Well it’s a new day and I am back with a new tutorial. I was thinking that there are so many people on here that absolutely love ninjas. There is this one kid I talk too that is on my friends list (you know who you are) that drew some really cool ninja characters that I thought were awesome. So because of that, I was inspired yesterday to show you all how to draw a ninja step by step. Now as we all know, the typical ninja (that we as people know) dress in an all black suit. But in all reality the ninja only wear one of three colors which are either black: this color is used when they have mission during nighttime hours, white: which was used when missions took place in the winter, and a deep green color that almost looks black: they wore this color when missions were carried out in the woods. The actual name of a ninja suit is a “shinobi shozoko”. The shinobi shozoko covers the body completely except for a small portion of the face and a small portion of the hands. The ninja wore these special shoes called “tabi boots” which aided them to climb ropes and scaling walls. These boots have a split between the big toe and are almost like wearing sandals or flip flops. They fight with a variety of weapons that include; a ninja sword, nunchakus, shuriken or ninja stars, gunpowder, smoke bombs, chigiriki, blow guns and darts, ashikos (which are spiked claws that they wear on the bottom of their feet. This tool enables the ninja to climb faster and really hurt his enemy when kicked). There are so many more ninja weapons that are used by these skilled warriors. I say warrior because the ninja is a Japanese trained warrior that specializes in martial arts, and a variety of other techniques such as; assassination, espionage, stealth, camouflage, and an expert in weaponry. This tutorial will show you how to draw a ninja step by step. This tutorial has easy to follow directions and steps making it that much more possible for anybody to tackle. I will be back again with more drawing fun in a bit so stay tuned.
