How to Draw Android 16

Step 1.

First things first, establish yourself by drawing the core guides to create the character as a whole. DBZ characters have large flaring torsos, which actually suit their characteristics. I ALWAYS draw my guides head-to-toe. By doing so, you'll have an advantage to avoid mistakes in the future. Make sure you draw some of these circles with a compass or semi-perfect. I would recommend to use a different color for the guidelines so you'll be able to see the guides to erase later on.

Step 2.

Next, we have to draw the frame for the head and the shoulders. Android 16's armor resembles the ancient Samurai warriors of Japan. It almost seems the armor is coiling around his body like a shell. Be aware of this part, as Android 16's appearance is very robotic-like. By setting the frame of the bulk, minor details will be much easier to draw.

Step 3.

Then, we fill in the core of his hair and facial details. By working your way slowly, you'll have a better patience scale. See how the guidelines help out a bunch? The torso should wrap around the guide so you get the best fit and shape. Take care when drawing the arm as the hand can be bothersome.

Step 4.

Next, let's work on fleshing out the legs as they are important. Android 16's legs are bulky and well developed. They should be drawn with perspective acting its force. Make sure you pay attention on how the legs width from each other. Finish off his face by adding he eyes and the high cheekbone definition.

Step 5.

Lastly, draw add more definite details the hands and shoes. The shoes take about 3/4 of the leg so keep that in mind when you draw them! Minor detailing should be drawn lightly so they won't draw away attention from the unified character.

Step 6.

Here is the proposed line art that your drawing should resemble. You can go ahead and carefully erase the guides you initially drew from step one. Inking out your drawing or coloring it with Copics is probably more suitable if your working with traditional media. I hope you folks enjoyed this lesson, as I had much fun creating it! Thanks so much for viewing and peace out!

I'm back with another lesson on a Dragon Ball Z lesson that will simply teach you on “how to draw Android 16”, step by step. This character highly resembles Arnold Schwarzenegger which is actually, pretty cliché. Android 16 is banded with his group of buddies, the female and male which go by the names of Android 17 and 18. Personally, this saga was probably the most attracting and gets better when it moves onto the Cell Saga, which still, levels way high on the 'epical scale'. The drawing of this character was a bit fun to do, as well as the background. The background creation was rather tedious since I have to render so many backdrops that my ideas start withering. This character takes a stand on the good side with Goku and his friends; later on in the episodes that is. He is of a silent type that is destined to kill, just like 'the Terminator'; pretty funny actually, he speaks and acts EXACTLY like Arnold does in that movie! I find the color combination of this character to be very subtle and genius at the same time. He is more aesthetically a robot than his counterparts, Android 17 and 18. Unlike the cocky and arrogant attitudes of his counterparts, he is fairly very direct with his actions and gestures. The emotions on his face is quite void and frowned, unless he conflicts with deep shiz. I can't really remember how long he lasts in the series, so if any of you DBZ fans know, be sure to let me in on the scoop. Anyways folks, I have to move onto other lessons. Coming up next is a very awesome tutorial that I can't wait to share with you all! Thanks so much for viewing and good luck with learning “how to draw Android 16 from Dragon Ball Z”!
