How to Draw Skycrusher from Kaijudo




Let’s learn how to draw Skycrusher from Kaijudo today!
Skycrusher is a creature in the Kaijudo: Rise of the Duel Masters series, which is both an American animated series and a trading card game. Lord Skycrusher rules Blastforge City, which lies on the territory of the Fire Civilization. Blastforge City also showcases gladiatorial battles in its arena where creatures fight to the death. From his throne Skycrusher commands an array of Drakon soldiers and servants. He has a short temper. When he asks for service, there are only two choices – comply or fight him. Only few dare challenge his authority, especially when he has his Sword of Fiery Cataclysm, which forces any Fire creature to bend to Skycrusher’s will, ensuring no Fire creature can rebel against him. He is the Armored Dragon, one of the most powerful creatures in the Fire Civilization. He is two-legged humanoid, recognized by his lizard-like features and covered in armor. His card representations are: General Skycrusher and Lord Skycrusher.

Step 1

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.

Step 9

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.

Step 10

Wait till the ink is nice and dry and erase all the construction lines.

Step 11

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 Skycrusher 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! ^_^
