If you’re wondering why this character looks a little like Aang, that’s because it’s the son of Tenzin, which means he is also the grandson to Aang. Up next is another character from Legend of Korra, and instead of drawing a grown up or older teen, you will be learning "how to draw Meelo", step by step. I wish I could tell you a whole lot more about Meelo, but because he is such a new figure, there is no bio for him because he is technically still a character in the works. I can tell you that he has two sisters named Jinora, and Ikki, and Meelo and his family live on Air Temple Island. The resemblance to Aang is uncanny, but there are some differences that show through. For instance, the short thick eyebrows, and the pig like nose throw off the features to Aang a bit, but if you were to make some subtle changes, he would definitely look like his granddad all the way. Well I guess that’s all I can really say about Meelo, all I can do now is show you "how to draw Meelo" with this super easy tutorial. I had fun, and maybe I will upload a few more tutorials on the characters from Legend of Korra. In the meantime have fun, and try not to break your pencil from drawing to hard.

How to Draw Meelo, Meelo, Legend of Korra

STEP 2.

Using the guides you drew in step one, begin drawing out the shape of Meelo's head and then draw in the face. As you can see the shape of the head is kind of wierd, it almost looks like a child version of Flea from Red Hot Chili Peppers. Sketch out the structure of the head and face, and then draw in the ears. Using the facial guides, sketch in the eyes, and mouth. Draw and color in the thick eyebrows, and then draw the eyeballs, pupils, upright positioned nose, and then draw out the bottom lip. You will then make the hair lines and add some detailing inside of the ears.
