How to draw Shoto Todoroki easy with this how-to video and step-by-step drawing instructions. Anime drawing tutorial for beginners and everyone.
Please see the drawing tutorial in the video below
You can refer to the simple step-by-step drawing guide below
One of the most noticeable and recognizable aspects of Todoroki’s design is his loose hair that falls across his face. His hairstyle can look cool, but it can also be a bit difficult to draw!
Luckily, this guide will show you how to break it down into simpler steps to make sure it doesn’t get annoying.
The hairstyle will be drawn with some circles on top, and there will be lots of straight lines curving down to the sharper points for the spikes in his hair.
His hair is parted, so we’ll draw it in two, with this one going to be on the right. Remember to leave some space to the right of this hair shape, as we will add another section there shortly.
Step 2 – Next, draw more of his hair and ears
We’ve covered the gap on the right-hand side, and as promised, we’ll fill it in this step of your Todoroki drawing.
To do this, draw some more sharp curves on the side so that his pointy hair falls down more. Then use a smoother curve for his ears to stick out from the hair, as shown in the reference image.
Then move on to step 3!
Step 3 – Finishing His Hairstyle
Earlier in this Todoroki drawing tutorial, we talked about how his hair was separated into two parts and we are going to draw the second part now.
The left part of the hairstyle will look very similar to the first half, almost a mirror image of it.
Using the same spiky lines as before, draw the left side of his hair. Then we can start drawing his face in the next section.
Step 4 – Now draw his facial features
Now that you have finished your Todoroki hair, we can start drawing his face. Use a curved line with a rounded tip at the base for his face and chin contour.
Don’t forget to draw his other ear on the left side! His nose will be drawn with a straight line with two dots underneath, and his mouth will also be drawn with a thin wavy line.
His eyes will be drawn with some rounded shapes with sharp edges, and you can draw his pupils using two small circles dotted inside them.
Finally, draw a curved line in the upper right side of the face for his distinctive scar.
Step 5 – Finish Todoroki’s Chest and Shoulders
For this fifth step of the Todoroki drawing tutorial, we will finish drawing his body so you are ready for the final step where you can color him.
He has a high collar on his head, so we’ll start with that. The hem of the collar will have some curved lines running parallel to each other, then you can draw some straight lines down for the sides of the collar.
You can then use some more downward slant for his shoulders and then add some line detail to them. That should wrap up the final details of this tutorial and you’re ready to go! Before you do, you can also add some details of your own.
These may include drawing the rest of the body or drawing the background. If you agree with that idea, you can recreate your favorite Todoroki scene!
These are just a few ideas, but there are tons of ways to get creative with it, so make sure to have fun and see what you can create!
Step 6 – Finish your Todoroki drawing with some colors
Part of Todoroki’s personality is his duality with fire and ice, and these elements are reflected in his own design.
Half of his hair is white for the side that controls the ice, with a darker purple for the other side along with a scar representing fire. We used this palette in our reference image, so you can use it as a guide as you color your own Todoroki drawing!
You can also color the background or any other extra elements you may have added! Another way to include some color variation is to experiment with different art tools and media.
We hope to see what mediums, colors and techniques you use for coloring in this drawing!
