Today I’m going to teach you how to draw Monkey D. Luffy, from the ultra popular manga/anime, One Piece. Luffy is a pirate, and the main character of One Piece. He is on a never ending quest to find treasure and become the Pirate King. So without further intro, grab your pencil and let’s learn how to draw Luffy!
To get Luffy started, we will first need to draw a circle for his head, and a half circle shape underneath that for his shoulders. Divide the head into four sections as shown in the image, this will help us place Luffy’s features correctly on his face.
Next, draw Luffy’s small triangular chin, and give him an ear that sits right below the horizontal line of his face.
Along the bottom edge of the circle, draw Luffy’s smiling mouth. Inside his mouth, draw a little squiggly line for his teeth.
Give Luffy two large round eyes, and draw a small triangular line in the center of his face for his nose.
To finish Luffy’s face, draw a tiny pupil in each eye, a thin line above each eye for an eyebrow, and a small scar underneath his left eye.
Next we will need to draw two large ovals on top of Luffy’s head to form his hat.
Draw several spikes of hair beneath Luffy’s hat, hanging around his face.
Next, draw the outline of Luffy’s neck and his jacket.
Now we will need to draw a large round shape sitting near his Face for Luffy’s arm. In this pose, we will be drawing Luffy’s hand held up into a fist near his head.
Follow the round shape you drew in the last step, and outline Luffy’s knuckles and give him a few lines to define the bones of his hand.
To finish Luffy, draw a few lines to define the muscles of his chest and torso, and a few wrinkles in his vest.
Finally, color Luffy with some red for his vest, a yellow hat, and a peach tone for his skin, and he’s all done. Ready to go back on his quest to become the pirate king!
