Hey, what's up? Chris here. And today, we're going to be leaning how to draw a Manga robot. Now, the difference in Manga robots compared to other robots is the Manga robots usually have bigger arms from the elbow down and from the knee down the legs are bigger and there's more things going on, more gadgets and mechanism. So, the first thing we're going to do is we're going to start with the head. So, we're going to bring the head down, and we're going to close that up and draw that line. And we're going to draw another line here. And we're going to make a visor. Some more lines here for a decoration. So, we'll fill those lines in. We'll give a little box on the side, go up, that's an antenna, audio, headset, checking device, whatever you want it to be. Then we'll draw lines down here. Those will be the shoulders. And the shoulders will come out like that. Draw those lines down there. Then we'll take a thicker marker and we'll bring this down here and bring that back up. And we'll come down and make that a design. And back up again, and we'll fill that in. When you have different types of markers, don't be afraid to incorporate both of them, stuff like fine zips, wide zips. So, it's actually a good thing. That way you can come up with more designs and different ways to draw stuff. Now those are the lines and here come the robot arms. Draw the chest, it comes down. There's the belt. There we go. There's the fist, little blocks. And here's the other arm and here's the other fist, which are little squares. We're going to give this robot five fingers. And here is the waist, comes down, here's the knee joint and here is the foot. Same thing there. We're going that on the other side. And there is the foot there. Control panel and there you have it. Some thick lines for definition. And there it is. I'm Chris and this is how you draw a Manga robot. Give that a weapon and there you have it.
