How to draw Ling Yao | Fullmetal Alchemist

Welcome to today’s drawing session. If you’re looking to learn how to draw Ling Yao, the twelfth prince from Fullmetal Alchemist, you’ve come to the right place. I’ll guide you through the process, providing clear steps to capture his likeness.

Focusing on Ling Yao’s Features

  • Start with the shape of Ling Yao’s face, capturing his mature look and slender, toned frame.
  • His hair is a key feature—long and tied back, with spiky bangs that often cover one eye.
  • His ‘squinty’ eyes are usually closed, opening only to express intense emotions.
  • Incorporate elements of his attire, visible up to the chest, for authenticity.
  • Consider adding characters like Edward Elric or Winry Rockbell to complement Ling Yao in your artwork.

Understanding the Ling Yao Drawing Guide

This guide consists of 8 steps to create your Ling Yao drawing. Each image in the sequence is a building block, adding to the last, to gradually bring your sketch to life.

  • Grey Color: Outlines the basic sketch of Ling Yao’s face and upper body.
  • Black Color: Shows the cumulative progress from previous steps.
  • Red Color: Indicates the current step to focus on.

Beginning with a basic sketch, we’ll refine your Ling Yao drawing step by step. The final stage is inking, which requires a steady hand and patience. After inking, let the drawing dry completely before erasing the pencil lines to avoid smudging and to achieve a crisp, finished look.
