How to Draw Sadaharu, Gintama

Artist: Dawn / May 20, 2012

Step 1.

Start off with a head shape and then sketch in the facial guidelines.

Step 2.

You will now need to begin sketching out the crinkled lining for the face and or head like so, then draw in the cat like ears even though this animal is a dog. Add detailing inside of the ears like so as well.

Step 3.

Sadaharu has an innocent expression on his face in this drawing of him, but it is also very simple to replicate. All you need to do is draw the round shapes of the eyes, color in the pupils, and then draw the brow marks as well as the nose and lips.

Step 4.

Draw the line for the back, and then draw the front legs which are folded on top of one another. Draw in the toe lines for the paws, then you're done.

Step 5.

You will finish Sadaharu by drawing the rest of the body which is also the back arch. Draw in the thigh then the back paw. Lastly finish up this drawing by making the thick curled tail.

Step 6.

Once your drawing is all cleaned up Sadaharu should come out looking like the picture you see before you now. You can add some white-ish gray coloring to complete the character creation.

Description: The next few lessons will be based on some popular animal characters from anime and manga. First, this animal species looks like a cute kitty cat but the fact is, it's a dog. Today we will be learning "how to draw Sadaharu", step by step. Sadaharu is a very important figure in the series 'Gintama'. He is one of those animals that also acts as a mascot, but in all reality he's really considered a pet and member of the Yorozuya which is basically an orginazation that runs odds and ends for other people for a small fee. The Yorozuya was formed or founded by Sakata Gintoki. Anyways, Sadaharu was originally a Dog God for the Priestess Sisters, but after a while the expenses to keep Sadaharu grew, which then led them to give him away. Still, he is as cute as can be and even cuter when drawn. I hope you guys enjoy drawing Sadaharu as much as I did recreating him into a step by step tut. Adios people!
