Hey, what's up? It's Chris here and today we're going to be learning how to draw a katana handle. Let's begin. Now the first thing we're going to do is we're going to draw a line going across and we're going to thicken that up just at the base where the blade is. Now, we'll do the actual handle. We're going to draw a line down and we're going to draw another line coming down and we're going to close that off right there. Now a katana handle is like a, sometimes it's made out of ivory and it has a black fabric wrapped around it where it leaves these little diamond shaped openings so what we do is we go up and we do down, up, down and remember what I told you before if you make a mistake, don't be afraid, don't worry about it. Part of drawing is making mistakes, you go back, you fix it sometimes, you know, everything is drawn differently. So now that we have these little diamond things, openings, we can go ahead and fill this in. So we'll take this green and we'll just do some shading around each side, you see? And we'll do the same thing on that side, don't be afraid to get up in the line, come down, and there you have it. Worry not about mistakes, but for the presentation of this. I'm Chris and this is how you draw a katana handle.
