Artist: Dawn / June 7, 2013

Step 1.

Once again, let's start by making the shapes for each guide you need to create. Start with the head, then draw the torso, arms and blade like wings.

Step 2.

Next, sketch out the actual structure of the Nocturne's head and face. Notice the angles and sharp points to face.

Step 3.

You will now draw the bottom part of the mouth which is also the jaw. Fill inside the mouth with sharp teeth and color inside the mouth solid.

Step 4.

Fill the face with some deep sunken in eyes, then sketch in the detailing and markings on the head and face.

Step 5.

The complexity of the lesson starts now. You will draw out the rest of the head, then sketch out more of the head's structure. You will then draw the neck and the layers of the armor on the shoulders, back and chest.

Step 6.

Before drawing the body you have to fill in the detailing and definitions to the neck and shoulder armor, then proceed to the next step.

Step 7.

Sketch in the chest and shoulder, as well as the toned up arm. Draw the armor covered forearm and then some of the plate that hoovers over Nocturne's hand. When that is done you can draw in the large razor like cape which should be drawn to look like   

Step 8.

Continue to work on Nocturne's body by sketching in the clawed fingers, then draw the detailing or emblem on the forearm plate. Sketch the blade or cape definition which will also add detailing to this League of Legends champion.

Step 9.

For your last drawing step all you have to do is draw out the other arm, clawed hand, then sketch in the other blade which is highly detailed just like the first one. Lastly, draw the streaming tail that flows or trails behind Nocturne. Erase all you   

Step 10.

Okay folks here is the drawing when you're done. Color in the sketch and that's it.

Description: One of my favorite tutorials to make was the champion character from League of Legends, Nocturne. Unlike the other champions, Nocturne has this cool way of fighting/spells. He can cast a sort of shadow trail on the opponent and gain bonus points depending if he's on the black trail while attacking. I had fun working on this complex character; the most challenging part was creating a simple step execution for novices. The shading/coloring process was also interesting to work on, especially emulating the metal appearance of his weapons. If you want to color him yourself digitally, keep in mind to start with a base layer of a dark color that will set as your shadows. Make a new layer, and layer lighter colors on top of the shadows in order to create depth. It takes a lot of time to master, even I haven't even mastered it halfway. The technique is very similar to how realistic graphite artists work. Anyways, I know you guys must want to hurry and sketch your own version of Nocturne! So without talking too much, let's hop into the tutorial on 'how to draw Nocturne from League of Legends'!
