Hello! Today we’ve created an easy drawing lesson where we’ll show you how to draw a samurai that is suitable for beginners. Samurai is the ancient Japanese warriors who fought for the rights of their masters until the end of blood.

Samurai were extremely brave, prior to each battle, they were prepared to die. This insanity and willingness to risk their lives for their ideals caused terror in the hearts of their adversaries. Additionally, every warrior was a shrewd and quiet man.

It’s important to know that we will present to you only the first drawing lessons on Samurai on our website. We’ve already shared information about this warrior of the medieval era however, the lesson was extremely difficult. However, today’s drawing lesson is going to be much simpler.

Step 1
Static posture is extremely useful for studying proportions. It will be very simple to draw the Stikman. The growth of men is equal for all heads sizes.

The shoulders of men have larger than the waist (in women’s bodies, the two lines are roughly the same dimensions). The head should have a form of an oval. Its body (skeleton of Samurai) is composed of straight lines. The bends are marked with quick strokes.

Step 2
Let’s bring some air of Samurai. First, draw the lines of facial symmetry. This will assist us in drawing facial characteristics. Below the head, draw the neck by drawing a small cylinder. Then draw the torso in the form of a cylinder that tapers down. Draw the arms and let each one of them is composed of five components:

it is the joint of your shoulder;
The legs, along with the whole lower part of the body should be shaped in a shape that is expanding in an upward direction. Then, at the bottom of the legs, make sure to outline the feet’ silhouettes. One tip: the lines of this step must be drawn using a light pressing the pencil to allow them later to be erased.

Step 3
Utilizing the principles that we learned in the previous step, we sketch the faces of Samurai. Because our drawing lessons are usually straightforward, facial features will also be fairly straightforward to draw. First, we sketch the haircut, drawing the contours of the hair, before drawing the hair lines. With simple lines drawn in curved shapes, draw the eyebrows and eyes.

Make sure to add some wrinkles beneath the eyes. The mouth and the nose must also be drawn with simple lines. Don’t forget to draw the nasolabial folds and round lines along the area of the cheeks.

Step 4
Dress in the robe of the Samurai – a classic Japanese haori jacket as well as an unnoticeable part of the clothing beneath. The top portion of the jacket must be extremely wide as you will see, it hides even the shoulders’ tops and the lower portion of the vest should be narrowed in order to form the contours of an inverted triangle.

In addition, it was common to all ninjas. The Scorpion, Sub-Zero, and Reptile were all dressed in the same clothes. In the same way, outline belts and an elongated sword of the samurai, are concealed within the sheath.

Step 5
Continue drawing the samurai, a samurai drawing for beginners. Draw large, wide sleeves which are under haori. Eliminate the extra guidelines that show the shape that the arms. Draw the arm’s contours as well as trace the fan.

Step 6
The contours on the left sleeve should be drawn away from us, and then erase any unnecessary lines. Draw the interior of the sleeve as well as several folds that take the shape of straight lines. Draw the design on the blade’s handle and the hand that gripped the hilt.

Step 7
In the final stage of drawing lessons in the drawing of Samurai beginners, We draw only the upper half of our body. The legs and the entire lower part of the torso remain hidden beneath broad and wide pants, aka the hakama.

Therefore, we only have to draw the pants’ contours remove the guidelines, then create vertical lines that show folds. Draw the waraji, the Japanese knitted shoe, similar in the shape of slippers.
