Today’s requested tutorial was a new one for me, I hope you guys enjoy it, we’re going to learn how to draw Kirito from Sword Art Online for users maximumhawk91 and thestranger23. Sword Art has a cool premise, with players sucked into a virtual game they can’t escape until they reach the hundredth level and kill the main boss. The catch, of course, is that if you die in the virtual world your real physical body will die in the real world, kind of Matrix like ^_^. That’s where we meet Kirito and his female counterpart Asuna (will probably do a tutorial of her soon too, so stay tuned!) as they fight their way to the top! Today’s tutorial is pretty straightforward and is recommended for beginner and intermediate level mangakas. We’ll be doing some filling and shading at the end of today’s tutorial with two colors of black and two colors of grey. If you don’t have two shades of black pen or grey marker, it’s alright. We can do the filling all in black and use our pencil to get different shades of grey.
