How to Draw Mumm-Ra

Artist: Dawn / June 20, 2010

Step 1.

Mumm-Ra is going to be pretty easy to draw. All you have to do is start with the frame work which will enable you to draw this villain. Start with a head shape, and then add the facial guidelines. You will then draw the lining for the neck, arms, tor   

Step 2.

Since Mumm-Ra has a skeletal face from being a mummy, you will begin sketching out his bony, creepy looking face structure. Once this is done, you can draw in his eyes, and then the large wide open mouth.

Step 3.

Start sketching out the hood to his cloak that he is always wearing. As you can see the sides of the hood, and the inside of his mouth is colored in to look like a void. Once that is all set, you can begin drawing the lines for his bandages like so.    

Step 4.

You will now need to sketch out more of the cloaks material, but before you do that, draw in the arms like you see here so that the cloak comes out looking like it's resting on his arms. Once that is done, add some wrinkle lines and move to step five   

Step 5.

Okay, this is a pretty easy step. All you have to do is sketch out his hands which are very evil looking just like a lot of other villains. Next and lastly, draw out the outline of his body like you see here.

Step 6.

All you have to do now is first draw the length of his cloak, and then draw out the lining for his mummy bandages. Take your time when drawing out the bandages so that they come out looking uniform, and neat. Next, and lastly draw out some crease lin   

Step 7.

Here you have a completed tutorial on Mumm-Ra, the evil villain from the Thundercats. Color him in, and that's it!

Description: There is only a few more characters that I need to upload to make the Thundercats gang complete. So far I've submitted tutorials on Lion-O, Snarf, Cheetara, and the Thundercats symbol. Today, I will continue the fun by submitting my fifth character from the eighties series. You will learn "how to draw Mumm-Ra", step by step. I can almost guarantee that the new animated series is going to be a hit, which is why I have to draw and upload these important characters. Mumm-Ra is the main, over the top villain that the Thundercats are always trying to defeat, and get rid of. There is two different looks to this character, and one of them is in his mummified version like you see as the thumbnail. I drew Mumm-Ra in his mummy suit, but you can also see him looking beefed up, blue, and down right serious. He is what the creators call a demon priest, and he even thinks of himself as an ever living source of evil. All the characters from the series come from a place called “Third Earth”, and it is there that Mumm-Ra has infinite life, and incredible sorcery powers that enable him to be so dangerous. This evil character is so ruthless, he will take down anyone in his destructive path. Now, the fact that every mummy has a past is also true for this villain.. Mumm-Ra comes out of a time from Ancient Egypt, and back then he had a name which was Wahankh, and he was a member of the pharaoh's council. He also had a dog named Ma-Tep, which is then turned into Ma-Mutt in the future. The more episodes I watched with Mumm-Ra, the more I realized that the eighties had some pretty cool characters that where not only evil, but unpredictable too. This guy is so incredibly powerful, it is literally impossible to kill him permanently. He gets his powers from a few statues that are called “Ancient Spirits of Evil” which he also acts as a servant to. These statues are found inside of his burial chamber of his pyramid. No matter how you look at it, this is one cool, destructive, and powerful Thundercats character. I really do hope you have fun learning "how to draw Mumm-Ra", step by step. Don't go away, there is still two lessons that I have to write out, and upload for you guys to enjoy. Adios people, and have an awesome drawing day, or night.
