The last character that I was asked to draw is also from the Studio Ghibli film, “Princess Mononoke”. Instead of a wolf, you will be drawing a boy that has been through a lot. Today I bring you "how to draw Ashitaka", step by step. Now Ashitaka is a boy that is from the the Emishi people. Along with the rest of his people, he was one of the many that had been defeated by the Japanese Emperor's government called the 'Yamato regime'. Now that he has nobody, he lives in hiding somewhere around the Northern lands. A few things that Ashitaka has going for him is his hunting skills, and how he has incredible nobility. He will stop at nothing to defend his village, which is why he was cursed with death due to him killing Tatari God, Just because he doesn't talk a lot, doesn’t mean he is a mute, he's just lays everything by ear. Anyways, I do hope those of you that are fans of Studio Ghibli's work will love this lesson on drawing Ashitaka. I enjoyed recreating him myself, so you should too. Gotta go so I can prepare more lessons for you all. Peace out and enjoy!
