Gather Your Drawing Supplies

  • Blending Stump: Never blend with your fingers! Blending with your fingers causes the oils from your fingers to transfer to your drawing. Blending stumps allow you to blend without ruining your art.
  • Sketch Book When it comes to sketching, you can’t go wrong with the 300 Series Strathmore drawing pad.
  • Colored Pencils: I love using the Castle colored pencils whenever I add color to my drawings. They’re amazing!

If you love a good villain, I’m sure you’ll appreciate this drawing of Dabi from My Hero Academia. Consider coloring in your drawing and adding some blue flames to background to give it the ultimate Dabi vibe.

Senku is from the Dr. Stone manga series. It’s also an anime that can be watched on Crunchyroll if you’re interested. I think one of my favorite physical features about this character is his hair.
