This drawing lesson will help you learn to draw a cartoon boxer! Today, boxing is still a very popular sport practiced by many great athletes. But there is no doubt that ultimate fighting (and more extreme sports that are similar) will become more and more popular over the years. Still, let's try to draw a tough boxer in only eleven steps!
First, draw the head using an oval shape. Next, draw a triangle under the head to create the neck of your boxer. Don't hesitate to draw a thick and strong neck!
For the body, sketch two large oval shapes to illustrate the shoulders. Next, add a rectangle (with the bottom being narrower) to create the lower part of the body.
Now it's time to draw the arms! For each arm, just do the following: draw a circle to create the arm. Next, add a long oval shape to form the forearm. Then, add a rectangle to illustrate the opening of the glove. Finally, draw the glove using two oval shape (one for the glove itself and another one for the thumb).
Sketch a rectangle (by adding a slight curve to the top and bottom line) to represent the top of the shorts. For the shorts, just draw two rectangles. For each leg, draw a circle to represent the thigh. Then, add an oval shape for the leg itself. Finally, add a rectangle to create the feet.
Work on the outline of the head and draw two small ears.
Refine the outline of the body and the arms and make sure that all proportions are accurate and well-drawn.
Do the same to give a better look to the gloves and the shorts.
Sketch some nice legs with the previous basic shapes to complete the outline of your boxer.
Draw some lines on the body to add some muscles to your character. Then, sketch the nose, the mouth and the eyes to complete the drawing part of this tutorial.
Add some colors on your boxer. You can choose to add different colors for the shorts and the gloves. Don't forget to draw the shoes in a different color than the legs!
Like usual, you can improve your work by adding some shadows on your boxer. Congratulations! You've just completed this drawing lesson of a nice and strong cartoon boxer. More adorable characters can be found below. I hope you had fun and don't hesitate to practice over and over again.
