How to Draw Scorpion
Use the video and step-by-step drawing instructions below to learn how to draw Scorpion from the Mortal Kombat video games. A new cartoon drawing tutorial is uploaded every week, so stay tooned!
Intro: Start off with a pencil sketch. In the beginning stages, don’t press down too hard. Use light, smooth strokes for sketching.
Step 1: Start by drawing a circle near the top half of the page. The circle doesn’t have to be perfect. It’s just a guide for the top of Scorpion's head. Leave enough room at the bottom for the lower part of his head.
Step 2: Under the circle, draw an arc similar to the letter U as a guide for Scorpion's jaw and chin. The distance from the lower part of the circle to the lower part of the U-shaped arc should be a bit less than the entire height of the circle. Both of the shapes combined form the guide for Scorpion's head.
Step 3: Draw a vertical line that splits the head shape in half. This is a construction line that will help you place Scorpion's facial features later on.
Step 4: Draw two small shapes as guides for Scorpion's eyes. Draw them on either side of the vertical construction line and sitting right on top of the lower part of the original circle. The shape of Scorpion's eyes should be similar to little footballs.
Step 5: That’s it for the initial sketch! You have the basic shape of Scorpion from the Mortal Kombat video games. Now go in and tighten your drawing. From this point on, press harder with your pencil in order to get darker lines and a more defined sketch.
