How to Draw a Mecha Step 01

1. Begin by drawing the robot's head. Use a curved line to draw an inverted teardrop shape. Then, extend horizontal curved lines from its top and bottom.

Connect these with a curved line. Next, draw a curved line and a "V" shaped line across the front of the face, outlining the "eyes."

Learn More About The Mecha Drawing

In Japanese, the term mecha refers to a giant robot or machine that is controlled by humans. You can learn how to draw a mecha, design it, and color it to make it all your own.

"Mecha" is an abbreviation for the word "mechanical." Mechas are usually humanoid in shape but sometimes resemble animals instead.

Did you know? The term isn't limited to science fiction. It can also be used to describe real inventions by modern-day scientists.

Stories about mechas date back to the literature of the 1800s.

Some of the most famous mechas in fiction are the Gundam. Gundam are mobile suits that allow their occupants to enter outer space, fight one another, and use powerful weapons.

Similar fighting suits include the Knightmare Frames of the anime Code Geass, the Amplified Mobility Platforms (AMPS) used by the humans in the film Avatar, or the robots that face down the Kaiju in Pacific Rim.

Will your mecha represent the forces of good or evil? Will he succeed?
