Zoro Tutorial by SybLaTortue Zoro Tutorial by SybLaTortue
I got the weirdest request ever in my inbox yesterday, and normally I don't do those requests that pop up out of nowhere, but this one was so random that I couldn't resist doing it~

So they asked for "a tutorial for learning to draw a Zoro. Especially with that bandana from the film 10."

Now why ask ME for a tutorial, I have no idea, especially since my style is absolutely not consistant at all and Zoro always look a bit different everytime I draw him XD;

I don't think that tutorial will be useful to anyone except maybe dear requester (kinda hope it won't be; you should all draw Zoro in your own style) so I pretty much did that tutorial for the hell of it.

Extremely helpful! Those small details like the little lines that define his forehead and the eyebrow shapes are essential to capture Zoro's unique style. I suspect many fail because these details are not in place. Excellent tut!

...I love you for making this. I have been struggling with Zoro for so long >< I'm just now getting into drawing people anyway, but this definitely helps!! <3

This is great! Thanx, this will probably help get a bit better in drawing him.... I kind suck now and when I saw this I was like "Phew! Bless the lord-.-"
Maybe you can do more tutorials for other characters, like Sanji?:)

JuniperMoon Featured By Owner Sep 28, 2009  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
YOur tutorials are so amusing...I love the scratched out comments.

HMMMM....can someone horrible at drawing like me really learn by practicing this??

I'm going to give it a try at some point.
CharlieMcCarthey Featured By Owner Aug 23, 2009  Student Digital Artist
Y'know what I just noticed? That bandanna sort of looks like one of Sanji's shirts from the Eneru Arc-thingy. :hmm: Or maybe I'm just being special??
supermario228 Featured By Owner Aug 15, 2009

zzzAnsku95zzz Featured By Owner Aug 15, 2009   Traditional Artist

i needed it so much :floating:
Tigris-Lilium Featured By Owner Aug 13, 2009
I'd totally use this tutorial. Because I can't draw Zoro worth my life. Because his head pisses me off. XD
Kamikura Featured By Owner Aug 13, 2009
If it's any consolation, I think you draw an awesome Zoro! :)
C-Conztantine Featured By Owner Aug 12, 2009
Really good, I reallyneeded this 8D! I always fail then I draw zoro D: * favs *
Musicahiro Featured By Owner Aug 12, 2009  Student Digital Artist
I know how you feel, but I can't ever draw Zoro on my tablet correctly XD
Seto-sama-no-Nakama Featured By Owner Aug 12, 2009
Hmm, I think you should have gone into a bit more detail on how to draw his hair. Back when I was first learning to draw Zoro, I kept making his hair too close to his head and bristly-looking. Like...a marimo. -_-;;

So, his hair isn't as obvious to draw as one may think. I've seen a surprising amount of people make his hair fairly bushy. Makes him look like a different person.
SybLaTortue Featured By Owner Aug 12, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
But I didn't want to go into details ^_^; I think people can and should find their own way to draw 'short marimo hair', how I draw it isn't necessarly the best way~

This tutorial was never meant to be serious, I'm actually really surprised that some said it was helpful O_o;;;
klomp123 Featured By Owner Aug 12, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Faved for entertainment value. :D
Kaname-Nakajima Featured By Owner Aug 12, 2009  Hobbyist General Artist
this should help me emencly XD i reeeealy suck at drawing zoro T^T i beleave that its because of the short hair, im not used to drawing dudes with short hair (as strange as that may sound ^^; )

you have probably been asked this fifty times already but are you going to make a sanji one? it would bw much apreciated XD
SybLaTortue Featured By Owner Aug 12, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Not like this tutorial show how to draw short hair... <_<;

You're actually only the third person to ask for Sanji version. That's still three more than I expected ._.;; Soooo I'll think about it XD;
Kaname-Nakajima Featured By Owner Aug 12, 2009  Hobbyist General Artist
thue but its gonna help me actualy look like zoro ^^;
