How to Draw a Cyborg

Artist: Dawn / April 15, 2010

Step 1.

This is not a tutorial step, I just thought I would show you a few different types of cyborgs and the types of hands that some of these science fiction creatures have. This sketch came out awesome and I had some good inspiration for the designs.

Step 2.

Here is just a quick reference on how the frames should be drawn for the different types of forms for your cyborg that you want to draw.

Step 3.

This is just some more analasist on the different parts and joint for your cyborg creation that you will be drawing. I talk about some cool cyborg, and drawing related things that may help you draw your robot better.

Step 4.

This is the last tip before we get to the actual tutorial. I talk about how shading is important when objects overlay each other like you see the shoulder spears here.

Step 5.

This is the first step, and as you see it is very similar to other steps that are based on human figures. Start by drawing the heads, and then add the facial guidelines. Sketch out the torso shapes, and then draw the hips, and limb lines and shapes.

Step 6.

You will start sketching in the faces to both cyborgs in the sketch. As you can see I tried to draw one half of each face to look human, and the other half look like a robot. Once that faces are sketch out, add the detailing line work that structures   

Step 7.

You will first work on the chibi cyborg, and you will start by sketching out the eyes, teeth for both the skeletal side and the human side, draw a few strands of hair, and then begin sketching out the clothing and bionic arm. As for the female, you w   

Step 8.

The other side of the chibi cyborg's head is going to sketched out to look like robot spider arms that have arrow tips. There is some detailing to the legs or fingers that you will have to add. You will then sketch out the grapling hook for a hand on   

Step 9.

The small robot to the left is all done as far s drawing goes. You will work on finishing off the female cyborg. First thing you have to do is draw edge lines around each shoulder spear that is on her. You will then sketch in the detailing or definit   

Step 10.

This is your last drawing step. Finish off this tutorial by sketching in the hands or weapons. The hands look like weapons, which is why I said hands or weapons. You can choose to draw regular looking mechanical hands, or you can choose to do what I    

Step 11.

Once you cleaned up the drawing you should have two or one science fiction characters at your finger tips. I do hope you liked my creation or interpretation of a cyborg.

Description: Wow, how about those videos by 'teton' huh, ten, that's what I like to see. I would like to encourage more and more people to submit their tutorials and art onto The site is becoming a full scale community, with a bunch of options that every member can enjoy. Yesterday I was drawing live, and I have to say, I had a lot of fun. This first tutorial of the day is going to be on β€œhow to draw a cyborg", step by step. There is so any different robot variants that has been developed and created by scientists and researchers around the world. There is however one version that I have not yet heard creation of, and that is a cyborg. Some people may ask themselves, β€œwhat is a cyborg anyway?”. If you are a big fan of sci-fi and anime, you already know what a cyborg is. For those of you that only watch a sci-fi movie every once in a while, you probably have an idea but, your still not certain. And then there are those that hardly watch science fiction movies, therefore just the word β€œcyborg”, sounds like a grunge band that is playing cover songs for another artist. A cyborg, ladies and gentlemen, is the creation of two objects that form into something else. Example, a being fused with a robot is called a humanoid robot. Cyborgs can look like creatures or animals, and they can even look like children. This tutorial on β€œhow to draw cyborgs”, literally took me ten hours. The sketch of three cyber-genetic beings, really takes a lot out of the artist. But even though I worked real hard on this sketch, I found the muster to sketch out three other drawings so that you can have some fresh lessons for the day. I will be back soon with more drawing, so stay tuned in to see what's next.
