How to Draw Boa Hancock from One Piece




Great, we’ve got a double request today, the beautiful Boa Hancock from One Piece, for Tigo and Aphophis. Boa is the only female Shichibuka in the One Piece manga. She’s also the Snake Princess of Amazon Lily. Famed for her beauty, her complicated relationship with Luffy lands her in some serious hot water with the world government. She’s not only hot, but a troublemaker. She should be fun to draw. So, let’s get our materials ready and learn how to draw Boa.


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

If your goal is to become a real Mangaka and design your own manga characters make sure to try to draw Boa Hancock 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! ^_^
