How to Draw Sephiroths Masamune Sword

Artist: Dawn / November 18, 2008

Step 1.

Okay this is going to be a very simple drawing lesson with easy steps. All you will need to do here is draw out a long slightly curved horizontal line for the blade and then a short vertical line for the hand guard of the sword.

Step 2.

Now in this second step you will thicken the handle by drawing another horizontal line on top and then you will thicken the blade as seen here. The Masamune has a slanted tip as do many other katana swords.

Step 3.

Well you have made it to your last drawing step and what you will do here is finish off the handle by drawing the bottom lining. Once that is done you can then add the diamond like detailing that the sword has on the handle. Erase any guidelines that   

Step 4.

This is what your sword should look like when you are done. All you have to do now is color it in. You have now finished this tutorial on How to Draw Sephiroth's Masamune Sword step by step.

Description: Well folks here I am again with my third tutorial for the day and I think you are gonna like this one. A member requested a tutorial on how to draw Sephiroth’s Masamune sword step by step which he clearly uses in Final Fantasy VII Advent Children. There is some speculation whether or not Sephiroth’s sword is real. People ask “is it just a big long katana sword made to look like something amazing?” The answer to that question is “yes, it is a real sword”. Here are some fun facts about this legendary sword that I think you will find interesting; for one the Masamune, is named after a brilliant Japanese sword smith named Goro Nyudo Masamune and he is labeled as being the best sword smith that has ever lived in all of Japan. For those of you that are big time Final Fantasy fans this tutorial is for you (as well as the member who requested it). Believe it or not I was actually going to do a tutorial on Sephiroth’s sword a while ago but never got around to doing it. All it took was a request for me to actually finish my goal, so thank you for your request DragoArt member, if it wasn’t for you I probably would have taken forever to complete my list of “things to draw”. That is what I love about request, I get some really good ideas from other people and I really do appreciate that. Anyway let’s get back to talking about Sephiroth’s Masamune sword. As you know the sword is extremely long with a blade length of fifty inches and an overall length of sixty eight inches from butt to blade tip. The metal of the blade is made from high carbon steel and the handle is wrapped in cloth. This Japanese made sword really is a work of art and the game was inspired by the creation from Goro Nyudo Masamune and his sword. This tutorial will show you how to draw Sephiroth’s Masamune sword step by step. The easy to follow steps and simple to understand instructions make this drawing lesson a breeze to learn from. I will be back momentarily with more drawing fun.
