As you can tell by the colors of the background and clothing of this next character, you will be drawing an Earthbender from Legend of Korra. He is the brother of Mako, and he is also the technical owner of Pabbo. For my next submission you will be learning "how to draw Bolin", step by step. As you can see he is a hearty looking lad that is going to be part of Team Korra. Bolin is the same age as Korra, but younger than Mako. Now if you read the descriptions I add with every lesson, you should remember what I said about Bolin and Mako. I mentioned that Bolin was an Earthbender, but Mako was a Firebender. I know you are asking yourselves how on earth that happens. Well, in the new Avatar everyone lives amongst each other and they all mingle. Mako and Bolin are from a multiracial family. This means both of his parents are benders, but not from the same race. It’s not known as of yet which if the mother is an Earthbender or if their father is a Firebender, or vice versa. I wish I could tell you more about Bolins character but there is still no bio on him as of yet. It is known that he is more laid back than Mako, and he is a bit like Sokka in a goofy kind of way. The more I read about the story line and characters, the more I’m thinking that this is going to be an awesome series. As of right now there is going to be a total of twenty six episodes but if the series does good, I bet that number will be bumped up a bit. Anyways that’s about it for now. Have fun learning "how to draw Bolin" and as you do I will be preparing the last tutorial submission. Adios and peace out!

Draw a small circle for the head and then draw out the guidelines which will form a mannequin for Brolin's body.

STEP 2.

Here you will sketch out the shape of Bolin's face and be sure to draw in the ear. Make the hairline and then add a curl that hangs down the forehead. Next, sketch out his hair which is flared back and then begin drawing out his eyebrows which are thick and colored in. Draw the eyes and then eyeballs. Color in pupils, and then draw in Bolin's nose, mouth and ear detailing.

STEP 3.

Draw in the neck, and then sketch out the very stiff curled collar. I say curled because the collar folds outward.

STEP 4.

Sketch out Brolin's upper body which is very built but in a toned way. Draw the shoulders, some of the sleeves, and then the rest of the upper body and waist line.

STEP 8.

Now it's time to start sketching out the pants and legs and be sure they are loose looking instead of tight fitting. Draw the ends of the pants tucked under because the boot or show will be covering the rest of the pants.

You can finish off this drawing by sketching out the rest of the legs and then draw out the feet. Add some wrinkle to the ankles and then begin erasing the lines and shapes you drew in step one.
