How to Draw Ky, Redakai

Step 1.

Draw a circle for the head, and then add the guidelines for the face, shoulders, arms and torso like you see here.

Step 2.

Here you will sketch out the shape of Ky's face and then draw out the ears. Next, draw out the front pieces of his hair which are blocky strands.

Step 3.

Using the facial guidelines you drew in step one, you need to now draw out his intense eyes, along with the eyebrows and eyeballs themselves. Next, sketch in the nose, and his mouth like so, and don't forget to add some detailing to his face too.

Step 4.

Now that the face is all set, you can start working on getting his hair drawn out and notice how the hair is bulky, or drawn in chunks. Color in some pupils, and then add inner ear detailing.

Step 5.

Lets get his torso situated so we can move along and finish this tutorial. First draw out the vest starting with the collar around the neck, and then work your way down. Next, sketch out his arms and draw out the shirt collar line like so which is under the vest.

Step 6.

Okay, now you can actually sketch out the shape of his neck and then get the neck definition done too. All that is left to do in this step is sketching in the detailing for his jacket or vest which should be done around the collar, and along the front parts of the coat. When that is done you can draw in the thickness of his shirt collar and then move to step seven.

Step 7.

Continue to draw out the arms until his forearms and fists are sketched out as well. As you can see his hands are in a palms up position. Draw in the fingers and then finish sketching out his shirt and be sure to add the bulge on the sides of his waist.

Step 8.

Now it's time to finally finish drawing Ky. All you have to do is draw out the wrist bands he is wearing and then draw out the top part of his lower body which is the waist and some of the hips. Draw in his utility belt, and the Aztec looking belt emblem which is that round symbol in the front. Add detailing and begin erasing the guidelines and shapes that you drew in step one to clean up this awesome character.

Step 9.

Here is what Ky looks like when you are all done. Now you can color him in to really make him look series. I had fun learning how to draw Ky with all of you and I hope you like the series when it comes out in June on Cartoon Network. Again the name of the series is Redakai.

I wish I knew some 411 on this character that is going to be appearing in a new Cartoon Network series called ‘Redakai’. I can’t believe that the network is able to come out with all these shows and still have time to air everything else. I guess they get ideas for shows to fill spots for other series that go through a season finale. Anyways this tutorial is going to show you "how to draw Ky", step by step and he is one of the three main figures of Redakai. He is the leader of Team Stax, I read somewhere that the show is geared toward boys that are into action packed animated series. The same guys that brought you Bakugan is responsible for this new adventure and they are Spin Master. Ky is a fifteen year old boy and his two best friends are Boomer, and Maya. The show is going to take the viewers on a journey with Ky and his friends as they search for an alien energy force called ‘Kairu’. I bet it’s going to be an exciting series, and just by the character design I know for a fact that there is going to be some cool effects. Anyways have fun learning "how to draw Ky from Redakai", and you can expect to see the series on Cartoon Network sometime in June. Peace people and have fun!
