Have you ever found yourself captivated by the distinctive characters in Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba? Ever wished you could bring them to life on your sketchpad? Well, I’m here to guide you in doing just that. Today, we’ll focus on one character in particular – Obanai Iguro, the Serpent Hashira. Through this tutorial, you’ll learn how to draw Obanai, capturing his unique features and intricate details.
Serpent’s Gaze: The Unique Appeal of Obanai Iguro
Obanai is not your typical character. His intriguing physical traits add complexity to the drawing process, but they also make it even more satisfying once you’ve mastered it. He’s a fairly muscular man, of short stature and a pale complexion. His black hair cascades in varying lengths, the longest strands reaching his shoulders. What’s most remarkable are his eyes – Obanai has heterochromia, making his right eye yellow and his left eye turquoise. And don’t forget his significant snake-like mouth, a result of a past event that left a scar, hidden under a bandage. And yes, there’s Kaburamaru, his white snake companion, almost always wrapped around his shoulders.
