How to Draw Splinter

Step 1.

Okay start this first step by drawing out a circle for his head and then add the facial guidelines. You will then draw out another circle shape for his torso and then a shape of the bottom of a banana for the lower part of his body. Add the limb guidelines for his arms and legs and then three toe nails.

Step 2.

Now as you can see you will start sketching in the hairy eyebrows and then the shapes of his eyes. Draw the shape of the snout and nose tip. You will then draw out the shape of his shoulders and chest. Now draw out the lining for his legs and then his feet. Once that is complete you will add the lining for his belt.

Step 3.

See so far this tutorial is pretty easy huh? You will now sketch out the ears and then the jaw lining of his fury looking face. Draw out the hand and make sure that you add the tips of his claw like nails. Once that is done you will draw out the shape of his hanging sleeve and then the rest of the shape of his robe like clothes. Add the rat tail line and then move to the next step.

Step 4.

Once you are done with step four you will start drawing out some detailing lining for his eyes. Once that is done you will add some wrinkles on his torso jacket and finish off his hands. Detail the bottom of his clothes and then shape out the bottom of his feet.

Step 5.

This is the last step and what you will do here is add the fury brow lines as you see them here. Detail the inside of the ears and then give him some eyebrows. Add some detailing definition lines to his belt and then some crease lines to the bottom of his cloak. Finish off his rat tail and add some horizontal lines. Erase all the guidelines and shapes that you drew in step one.

Step 6.

This is what your drawing should look like when you are done. All you have to do is add some color and that is it. I hope you liked this lesson on how to draw Master Splinter from TMNT step by step.

Hello once again people I am back once again with my fifth drawing lesson of the day and believe me this next character is long overdue. For this next tutorial I will be showing you how to draw Master Splinter from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles step by step. Now Master Splinter as you may or may not know is sensei and sometimes a father figure to Leonardo, Donatello, Raphael and Michelangelo. Splinter is the one responsible for their training in Ninjutsu which he happens to be highly skilled in. There is many stories to how Splinter and the turtles came to be the size of humans and have the ability to talk and move like a human being could. The story that I am familiar with is how Splinter was forced to live in the sewers of New York City due to the death of his friend and master Hamato Yoshi. His master was slain by the hands of his enemy’s brother Oroku Saki because of a dispute between the two. When Splinter was in his cage he had exceptional intelligence and because of that he use to mimic his masters moves when he would practice Ninjutsu. After his friend and master was killed he found himself living in the sewer and came across four baby turtles and a green ooze. The ooze is responsible for the mutation made to all the turtles and Splinter. He named the youngsters after famous renaissance artist that were listed in a book he came across in the sewer. As they grew up they spent their time and lives living in an abandoned train station. Splinter grew old and became more like a father than a mentor. I always liked Splinter because he was very wise and skillful and always had an incredible amount of patience when dealing with his four turtle sons. This tutorial will show you how to draw one of the most famous characters ever created around the world. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles became a phenomenon worldwide in very little time. As of today there is still an animated series that airs on 4Kids TV called TMNT. This lesson will show you how to draw Master Splinter from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles step by step. I hope you have a butt load of fun with this tutorial because I know I did. I will be back with my last drawing for the day in a bit.
