How to Draw Frost, Mortal Kombat

Step 1.


Ok, let's start with some guide lines. We'll be drawing Frost for a slight angle, so one shoulder will be obscured. Basic hourglass figure on the torso, and some rather long legs. Tilt the head toward the higher shoulder to add a little more rhythm t   

Step 2.


We'll start off the line art with the basic shape of the face. Outline the ninja face mask, and use jagged lines for the hairline. Think sharp, like ice crystals ;)

Step 3.


Time you get your DBZ on, so to speak. Frost's hair is very much like ice crystals, but it's also very much like some serious Super Saiyan hair. Fun to draw. Have the points curve up and toward the center. The overlapping point in the center curves i   

Step 4.


Eyes, ears and details on the face mask. Flick the eyebrows and eyelashes up on the outside to give her a bit of a wild look.

Step 5.


A lot of instructional books and tutorials will tell you not to detail the tendons in a woman's neck, but I disagree. I think they look cool. The main muscles of the neck you notice from most front angles are the sterno-cleido mastoids. Actually, tha   

Step 6.


Chest vest. I don't know what this ninja vest is called, but pretty much all of the Mortal Kombat ninjas have some variation of this outfit. Since Frost is supposed to be sexy, have the main "V" shape curve underneath the breasts and then travel down   

Step 7.


Now we'll draw in the arms. They're in a fairly relaxed pose with the elbows close to her sides. Keep her hands open for some ice-wielding powers later. The underside of the arm tends to have a more basic curve, while the outside of the upper and low   

Step 8.


Here we'll outline the torso and the main curves of the legs. You want long, smooth curves, here. This is not the time to get sketchy. If your line is too wobbly or sketchy, just erase and redraw it. I've simplified a bit, here. Notice how the line f   

Step 9.


Use some nice, S-curves to finish up the legs, and cap off the feet. Notice the single "bump" on the outside of the thigh, opposite from the two muscle bumps and knee on the inner thigh. Of course, this is for a front angle. A side view of the leg gi   

Step 10.


Start detailing the gloves and add the sash/cloth thing wrapped around her thigh.

Step 11.


Frost's outfit has a LOT of decorative seams all over the place, but you could really mess up your work by drawing them all. Pick and choose some of the major lines, just to give an indication of that complex detail.

Step 12.


Drawing in the designs on the vest and loin cloth. Again, I've simplified these from the original concept art.

Step 13.


Carry the seam lines down into the lower legs. Now's a good time to add the flowing cloth, tied to her thigh with a knot. Time to add some irises to her eyes, too.

Step 14.


The pose is good, but we need a little something else to punch it up a bit. For some frozen energy balls around her hands, start with a circle and a vertical squiggle. From there, you can use smooth curves to either give them a fire-y look (on the ri   

Step 15.


Here's the finished line art. I lightened up the energy balls a bit, and it actually looks pretty good. If you're working in pencil, you can lightly erase your lines to achieve a similar effect. If you're inking this, you might want to consider doing   

Step 16.


...and the finished colors! That's it for Frost. She was pretty fun to work on. I hope you guys enjoyed following along. Hey, we drew a Mortal Kombat female and avoided obscene cleavage! I feel rather proud for some reason. Anyway, more MK characters

Description: Hey, guys. It's Mortal Kombat time again. I've finally gotten around to doing Frost, the very cool (ha) female version of Sub-Zero. Well, I guess she's her own character. All I know is that she looks cool and she had to be drawn. Hope you guys enjoy!
