How to Draw Ghirahim, Ghirahim, Skyward Sword

Step 1.

Make a circle for the head and then draw out the guides for the body. This is going to include the arms and legs.

Step 2.

Sketch out the shape of the face like so, and then begin drawing out the hair which is styled much like an Emo. Be sure to draw in the elven shaped ear too before leaving this step.

Step 3.

The next process to drawing Ghirahim, is getting the face drawn in. Start by sketching out the very straight and series eyes. Color in the pupils and begin making the nose and mouth. Next, sketch detailing inside of the ear, and then draw an earring    

Step 4.

Here is where the tutorial starts really getting good. Sketch out the neck and then begin drawing out his scarf which has a ringed stiff collar. The bottom of the front piece of cloth should be drawn by tapering off.

Step 5.

The body parts are going to be getting drawn in now. Start with the left arm and begin drawing out the arm just past the bottom of the sleeve area. Continue drawing the arm and then draw out the hand which is in a gestured pose.

Step 6.

Guess what guys, you are getting closer to the end of this lesson. I want you to focus on getting the torso sketched out the way you see it done here. Draw out the belt or sash and then add a diamond shaped medallion or buckle with a medieval design.

Step 7.

Simply draw out the right arm and hand like so and then add some fingers and touch ups.

Step 8.

The upper body is completely drawn out. You will now start drawing in the hips, thighs and legs. Make the proper addition for a crotch and then draw out the feet and make sure that the toe tips curl up slightly.

Step 9.

It looks as though your character is nearly done. Since the difficult parts are over, you can begin drawing out the cape that has a multiple tail design.

Step 10.

For the final finishing touches, erase the guides and shapes you drew in step one and begin filling the body with diamond shapes. The stomach and legs have these shapes so draw them in as you see them here.

Step 11.

Another Zelda character has been finished and added to your drawing book of game characters. Now that you have drawn Ghirahim, you can begin coloring him in. This was a very fun and simple tutorial, and I bet you did a great job.

Description: Has anyone heard of Skyward Sword? Well, there is going to be a new version of The Legend of Zelda and it will be for the Wii system. Skyward Sword is going to be filled with awesome characters including villains, secondary figures, and main characters. This lesson is going to be on "", step by step. This is going to be a brand new character from the Zelda series, and Iโ€™m pretty sure that he is also going to be the main antagonist. He is a conceded and self-centered individual and instead of being called just Ghirahim, he would much rather be called Lord Ghirahim. I donโ€™t want to give away the game for either you or I, so all I will tell you about this Lord is once you understand what is going on with the story, at some point he is going to be the one responsible for calling a tornado in Skyloft which ends up sucking in Link and Zelda. His appearance is somewhat cooler than other villains from Zelda; one of the reasons why I think he is cool is because Ghirahim reminds me of Sephiroth with the same white, dark look and they also have similar facial expressions. It was interesting making this tutorial on "how to draw Ghirahim" because it almost felt like I was making a FF character. I hope you have fun guys and try to stay tuned in for more drawing fun. Peace people and enjoy your day!
