- Colored pencils (optional)
Step 1: Sketch the Basic Shapes
Begin your drawing by sketching a circle for the head and a larger oval for the body. Add a smaller circle for the upper torso. Then, draw the arms in an extended position, followed by the legs in a dynamic pose.
- Use light lines for the initial sketch.
- Don’t worry too much about details at this stage.
Step 2: Refine the Shapes
With your initial sketch complete, refine the shapes by adding details such as the face, clothing, and hair. Make sure to add a long horn-like appendage to the top of the head.
- Use reference images to help with the details.
- Focus on getting the proportions right.
Step 3: Add the Details
Now that you have the basic shapes and refined details in place, focus on adding the finer details and features. This includes everything from the intricate clothing design to Zero Two’s facial expressions and hair details.
- Use smaller and lighter pencil strokes for the details.
- Take your time and be patient.
Step 4: Shading
To bring your drawing to life, add shading to give depth and dimension. Shade in the areas where shadows would naturally fall, such as under the chin or on the folds of clothing.
- Use a light touch with your pencil strokes.
- Blend the shading to create a smooth transition from light to dark.
Step 5: Coloring (Optional)
If you choose to add color to your drawing, select colors that match the original design or your personal preferences. Use colored pencils to carefully and lightly shade in the desired areas.
- Start with a light layer of color and gradually build up the intensity.
- Pay attention to the highlights and shadows when coloring.
Step 6: Finalize and Erase
Take a step back and assess your drawing. Make any final adjustments or additions. Once you’re satisfied, use an eraser to carefully remove any remaining pencil marks to reveal your finished drawing.
- Don’t be afraid to make changes until you’re satisfied.
- Be careful when erasing to avoid smudging.
Drawing Zero Two can be a fun and rewarding experience. Start by sketching the basic shapes, refining the shapes, adding details, shading, and coloring (optional). Take your time and don’t be afraid to make changes or try new techniques.
