STEP 1. In this first step you will be drawing out the frame of Piccolo. Start by drawing out the shape of his head with facial guidelines drawn in. Next draw a cylinder circle that goes under and around his face. Now draw the beginning shape of his cape which sort of looks like a fly's wing on the right side. Now you can draw three egg shaped circles on the left and right hand side for his muscular arms. Draw the shape of his torso which is a boxed shape. From the shapes you just drew draw out the remaining guidelines as shown for his legs and the bottom of his cape.   STEP 2. Next in this step, we will start sketching out the outside of Piccolo's pants. An easy way to draw the pants is to make a lot of ruffles. If you noticed, all Dragon Ball Z characters have ruffly and baggy pants. This is Japanese tradition. Anyways, start shaping up that cape to. For the cape we will start adding noticeable ruffles that make the image detailed. To the left side sketch out the hands and muscle. Make sure that the forearm is proportioned with the hand. In some of my images, I tend to make the forearm too big for the hand. We will then start drawing the large eyebrows of Piccolo. Since he has no eyebrows, we will make the brow hairless and thick. Also add his mouth and right arm.   STEP 3. Continue drawing out the ruffled lines on the right leg as shown. Once that is complete you can start drawing and shaping out his narrow foot which is a shoe. Detail the ape a bit on the inner left corner and than you can staert detailing his finger by giving him finger nails. regulaur pointed tips is all you need to draw. Sketch in detailed lines to define his cape   STEP 4. This step is quite easy and extremely fun. We are going to add the detailed lines in Piccolo's arms. Make these lines go one direction and not ending in other places. In other words, when you draw those small lines, make sure that they are going in a straight direction. They must all start from the bottom to top. Don't let them end at the side of the arm. We will then start drawing the chest area. Start shaping out the obi around Piccolo's waist. Add some outward ruffles kinda coming out of the obi. This will make a fluffy effect. Start adding more ruffles at the left side of his leg. Along with that, draw the wraps on his hat. Make sure that you leave an open area in the middle of his hat. Below the right arm, draw some extra lines for his cape.   STEP 5. Now we will focus more on the face and the rest of the cape. Around Piccolo's face draw smaller lines coming extending outward from his face. These will make his neck cape seem volumed and full. Add the triangular shapes beneath his eyebrows too. As you can tell all Dragonball Z characters have these triangular eyes. Anyways, start drawing more lines going inward of the cape. Add some folds and creases in it as well.   STEP 6. Now we will fill in the rest of the details for Piccolo. Start drawing curvy lines in the empty muscle spots. These are most drawn in the main muscle areas like the biceps and triceps. Add some extra ruffles to him too so it looks more realistic. Add the small eyeballs inside the triangular shape of his eyes. Finish off the detail of Piccolo's footwear and ankle. Remember when you are drawing this Dragonball Z character, make sure you do not forget that ankle part. Piccolo's pants do not sag over his footwear. They stop a few inches away from his shoes.   STEP 7. Now we are finished. Erase those unwanted drawing lines like the frame of the character and unused circles. If you wanted, you could ink Piccolo out too. This will make a nice and clean effect. I don't use paper to draw my pictures, I use the computer. Look how nice and strong Piccolo looks. This image was drawn out of inspiration by watching Dragonball Z cartoons online. I watch them everyday. I'm currently at the Cell Games Saga. What's ridiculous about this saga is that Cell keeps coming alive. It gets annoying but still the action and the characters are amazing. Anywho, I hope you had fun drawing Piccolo!   Step 1. Step 2.
