How to Draw Scorpion Easy, Mortal Kombat

Artist: Dawn / May 4, 2012

Step 1.

Begin by making a circle for his head, and then sketch in the facial guidelines like so.

Step 2.

Next, begin sketching out the structure of his head, as well as the area of the face that is not covered with a mask and that is his eyes. Notice how the back of his head has some contouring.

Step 3.

Using the facial guidelines all you have to do is first draw in the thick shaped eyebrows which are in this case giving off a mean or unpleasant expression. Once that is done draw the shapes of his eyes which will stay voided out, and then sketch in    

Step 4.

As you can see Scorpion is coming along nicely. All you have to do now is draw out the lower half of his face which is sort of bone like. Add the design structure of the mask and then add the detailing too.

Step 5.

Now that Scorpion's face and head is all drawn in you can start drawing out the thick muscular shape of his neck. Once that is complete, draw in the shoulders as well as the padding that is part of his uniform of gi. Add detailing and definition wher   

Step 6.

When you have erased your mistakes you can start the shading process. Like always lay down a base. This will be textured in later steps as you will see.

Step 7.

Darken the head and neck like so with more defined shading, and then proceed to step eight.

Step 8.

Add some background color or shading, then lighten up some spots and smudge in others.

Step 9.

Here is Scorpion when you are all done. Now you can either add some color or leave the drawing as a sketched image.

Description: "Get over here"! Here is a face that I haven't seen in a while. He is from the original Mortal Kombat video game series and he is one of my favorite fighters. Here is "how to draw Scorpion easy", in a sketch drawn style. I love how Scorpion came out and so did my brothers and mother. He has this certain evil quality about himself that is not only intimidating, but also very dangerous to be around if you are his enemy. Drawing Scorpion in an easy fashion is going to appeal to all you Mortal Kombat fans, as well as all you ninja fans. As you know Scorpion is one of Mortal Kombat's more popular characters and fighters. Well that is all I really want to say about this character since I already spoke of him in my original lesson on Scorpion. It's time that you have a blast with drawing him out to your perfection. You don't have to make this a sketched image of Scorpion, you can just ink out the line work and color him in as well. Have fun people and don't forget to rate, comment, and fav if you want. Peace!
