Let’s learn how to draw Yuuji Itadori from Sorcery Fight today!
Yuuji Itadori (虎杖 悠仁) is the main protagonist of Jujutsu Kaisen. He is a first-year student at Tokyo Prefectural Jujutsu High School. He is a muscular teenager. He has big light brown eyes and light brown spiky hair. After becoming a host for Sukuna, he gets a 2nd pair of eyes below each of his eyes that only open when Sukuna is controlling the body. At the start Yuuji wore a light-colored hooded jacket, white shoes and bottoms of his black pants are rolled up. Later he changed outfit to his version of the uniform that includes a black long sleeve shirt resembling a gakuran over a red hoodie, black pants, and black shoes.
As always all the blue and green lines are just construction lines and will be erased later so do not push on your pencil too much ^_^ I will try to be super efficient with the text so will only describe steps that require some explanation.
Make sure to leave enough free space on paper for next steps. You can see how much space you will need from the size of the paper on this picture.
Lighten all the construction lines by “stamping” the kneaded eraser on the paper. Make sure to refer to the picture bellow as you need to ink only some parts of the construction lines.
Wait till the ink is nice and dry and erase all the construction lines.
To add colors, make sure to sketch the color outlines with the right color or pencil first.
If your goal is to become a real Mangaka and design your own manga characters make sure to try to draw Yuuji Itadori from memory several times. Always compare the drawing to the original and correct any mistakes you see. Do this till you are happy with the result. It doesn’t have to look exactly the same, don’t sweat the details. The point is that you get the main shapes right and that it looks good. This is the best way to build a huge library of manga shapes in your memory that you can use to draw and design your own manga characters ^-^.
Draw with passion! ^_^
