However, as soon as the western moguls found the general appeal in the ninjas, the entire world became overwhelmed by numerous comic books, short stories, TV shows, animated series, and games.

The very first ninjas originated in feudal Japan and served as spies and covert agents, ready to enforce the Emperor’s will at any given moment. Also known as a shinobi, a ninja warrior was incredibly fast, strong, and intelligent, superior to his enemies in almost every aspect. The very first shinobi group was created in the 15th century.

These tutorials are only here to guide you. Your drawing does not need to look "identical" to mine.

Start with rough but light pencil strokes that you can work into the shapes you want.

Once you have your rough drawing completed, go over it in a darker stroke for your final drawing.

Add shading and/or color to complete if desired.

Using this technique you will be able to draw anything after some practice... even without following step-by-step tutorials.
