How to Draw Saitama
Are you looking to up your creative game? Are you ready to take on a challenge of drawing the great Saitama? There’s no better way to hone your drawing skills than tackling the classic anime protagonist himself. It’s no secret that Saitama’s classic design is one of the hardest to recreate. But with the right tips and tricks, you can easily bring the one punch man to your notebook pages without missing a beat. So let’s get ready to draw!
Start with the Face
Drawing Saitama starts with his most recognizable feature: the eyes. His trademark facial feature includes two huge, round eyes with a bright yellow color. With a ruler, draw two equal circles and make them cross-shaped in the middle. To make it look even more natural, draw long lines to mark the eyes’ creases. Draw some small circles and contrast marks to make the eyes look lively.
Once you’ve drawn those signature eyes, it’s time to focus on the rest of his face. His face is quite simple and has few features to account for. Start by sketching an oval that is strongly angular on the cheeks and chin. Take the ruler to set the jawline and give a semi-pointed underneath his mouth. Next, add two curved lines from the eyes downward to create the shape of his nose and mouth. Finally, give him a classic anime hairstyle with a prominent spike effect to show off his strength.
Adding Details to the Outfit
Now we can move on to Saitama’s classic costume. His signature outfit includes a classic yellow jumpsuit with a black belt, black gloves, and a red cape. Start off by drawing the jumpsuit with an round neckline to make sure it looks natural. Make sure to leave room around the neckline to draw the arms and pant legs. Then draw two slanting lines from the neck until they meet in a triangle-like shape to complete the jumpsuit. Drawing the gloves comes next. Use long curved lines around the arms of the jumpsuit to create the gloves. Finally, draw the cape – the perfect finishing touch for Saitama’s costume – using two curved lines that join in the back to recreate his classic red cape.
Make Saitama Pop off the Page
Giving your drawing life and realism is key to completing any figure of Saitama. The final touch you should do is to make him stand out from the page. Give him extra details to make him look bolder and more muscular. Start by drawing Saitama’s iconic V-shaped symbol on the center of his chest with a ruler for a neat finish. Then add superheroes’ flexing muscles and rippling abs using long curved lines. Add some graininess in the jawline and hip to make your figure look more realistic. Finally, draw two huge parallel lines on his cape’s shoulder to recreate its iconic look.
Drawing Saitama with Confidence
Drawing Saitama isn’t for the faint of heart. It takes practice and patience to get it just right. The best way to perfect your drawing is to consistently practice and stay committed to your craft. If this proves too difficult, you can take online drawing classes or check online tutorials to get extra help. With enough dedication and hard work, you’ll be able to create Saitama in no time.
Adding Color to Your Drawing
Last but not least, we have to add color to the picture. To make the drawing come alive, use pastel markers or colored pencils to bring out the vibrant shades of Saitama. Start by adding his signature yellow to the jumpsuit by carefully coloring the outline you drew with pencils. Then fill the eyes with two tiny circular black pupils and two huge yellow eyeballs. Switch to markers to fill the mouth and cheeks with his classic soft red color. Add more depth to the face with subtle shadows using a dark blue-green color around the edges of Saitama. Finally, the finishing touch – use a bright red to complete the cape
With Consistent Practice Comes Great Reward
Learning how to draw Saitama is an incredible milestone for any beginner artist. But drawing the “one punch man” needs patience, skill, and never-ending practice. Completing a work that perfectly resembles the classic anime hero is years worth of pain put into a single masterpiece. But the reward comes when you see your masterpiece take life and stand out on paper. It’s a reward of joy and pride, and one that all artists hope to achieve.
