How To Draw Mewtwo by Vaporeon249 How To Draw Mewtwo by Vaporeon249
Been told, multiple times that I should do a Mewtwo tutorial. Or at least some sort of guide, or walkthrough or something. Never been interested in the things, couldn't really care. People draw the darn thing any way they want, so beit. But figured I'd try and see more-or-less how long the approach for me is, and did this. Honestly spent more time with the layout than anything else.

So, basic sort of start to finish in itty-bitty sucky sketchy detail. If anyone really wants to know how to draw a Mewtwo, here is a hint: Watch the movies! Nothing is more accurate than the real thing itself. And want to know how to draw something good? Practice and also reference real things, like photos.

Pencil, Photoshop CS4.

Good tutorial, even if it does skip a few steps at the beginning such as doing the lines, the circles, the :blahblah: .

However, those steps are practically useless, seeing as how you can (Hopefully) imagine a pose and draw it after looking at this. (I, sadly cannot. I got to the first line and rage-quit, but that's only because I suck elephant balls when it comes to drawing.)

So basically, anyone who needs to draw mewtwo/mewthree stuff and such, this is the stuff you need.

No one draws in circles. I know one guy who does, and he's stuck in this eternal loop of limitation. People just don't draw that way.

See, I draw circles, squares and triangles and I am always caught up by the undulating madness of the either my circle not being "circle-y" enough, my square looking too much like a circle, or my triangle being a square...

As you can see, I am really fucked up when it comes to drawing. I much prefer social arts and literature rather than trying to draw something for hours only to end up with a paper mound by my trash can that could easily surpass mount fuji. And then if I don't draw in circles, my mind still mucks up in some way. (Don't ask how, I haven't figured out yet.)

Too perfectionistic maybe? Sounds like a very painful way to draw.

In my honest opinion, I don't know how you people do it. Even with explanation, I'd be lost in the jargon and inundated with words and, in short, my brain would just stop.

Anyways, keep on drawing!

Now onto the next step: Creation of Complicated Stories For Dummies!

I am just playing. I would bother with that step, so lets skip that step and go to the best part : PROFIT!!!

I think that required a lot of hard work, both for actually creating a tutorial, doing a marathon of novel writing, or making one that sells.

Thanx for this, I'm not very good at drawing Mewtwo, so this helped a lot! Personally I think Mewtwo's head would be more cat-like, but that's just me and I will probably use this as a reference.

If you're aiming for cat-like, then best include images of cats in your references then.

I still wish I broke away from how I draw the legs and give some extra joints to it or something. This was basically the most I could do with what was given. Add some muscles, tendons, some bones, and hope for the best. Mewtwo's legs are so painfully dull normally.

I don't think this is personally rather useful. For someone like you, who learns really rapidly, you'd probably benefit more from researching photographs and interpreting it accordingly.

New people should look at the Mewtwo art around them, and draw what they thinks represents them best. I hope that if they do it though, they pick something that doesn't leave them in a perminent rut,

Not quite step-by-step in my case. This is visually cheated. I had only the final and the gesture. In Photoshop I overlayed the finished product over the gesture, and erased the parts that didn't need to be there yet.

Personally I think I do! This tutrial gives me really nice ideas how to improve how I draw him. I want to change some things of how I draw him and this is defently a good inspiration.
I see you sketch pretty much the same way I do. Sometimes I use cirkles, tubes and square's as well when I draw but not that often. Personaly I don't think those helps when doing a tutrial for others anyway. I think shape's combinded whit sketching helps the most like if you imagine how pikachu looks like in the simpliest way imaginable for example he is a ball in body. It helps a lot giving him the "plump look" wich he has. Once I had a really hard time drawing children but since I learned about shapes and to exaggerate some typical features they have children is no big deal anymore.

Still, I don't think you need to improve how you draw Mewtwo. Of most of the people here who do draw him, you don't need to do a single thing to be better at drawing him.
Kids are quite a challenging prospect to draw.

...My, my thank you. -^^- I feel honored to hear that you like how I draw him. Still I have done some minor changes on the "realistic" version (you know I have a chibi/cartoon one to) now since I want him to look heavier and more robust. Likes how it came out very much. Btw I love your style very much and I love how you draw your Mewtwo's as well. Well every artist draw Mewtwo in their own and unique style but there aren't many who tries "realism" like you and me.
It took some time for me to learn how to draw kids but now I have no trouble anymore. When you know how to think there isn't actually anything easier to draw. Actually it was a disney documentary who taught me. It was a tutrial how to draw thumper from Bambi.[link]

Problem with realism is it's easier to criticize it for not being "Mewtwo" enough. Hate that remark. I enjoy the creative, and the anatomical.
Ah, Disney. What an... interesting influence.

I think our problem is that we like the wrong thing, draw the wrong thing and have wrong audience if you see what I mean? The most Mewtwo fans seem to like the gameboy version of him wich I personaly dislike. I was always disapointed about that they portrayed Mewtwo in the gameboy style in the smash bros melee games instead of the anime version. Yes I LOVE realism to and always have.

I have been influenced by Disney how I draw under a lot longer time then anime. I didn't draw anime/manga until I was 15 years and sailor moon was the reason I wanted to give it a try. Still I always been careful to not get it to much "anime" cuz I want to keep my personal style as well. I do Love OLD disney a lot but the animations they do today...ugh!

Guess I never talked to enough Mewtwo fans to know they like the Gameboy style. Alway figured that the anime was more prevelant, but then again, I've only really ever played Pokemon Red, and that version of Mewtwo is hideous! No one draws that one.
Wish I could have been even remotely influenced by the Disney style first, over anime. So much hard to get out of the poorly drawn quality of anime. Disney transitions better.

Nice guide. I don't really use tutorials unless it's for something specific on Photoshop, but there are some decent tips in here. I realize I do my Mewtwo(s?) and humanoids in general (actually, anything other than a still object) a little differently in the initial phases.. like I'll draw out a skeleton with circles for body areas (head, chest, hips, hands and feet) and the joints, and then connect it with lines. Tends to work well for me.
I didn't use to start with a skeleton, but most of those ended up disproportionate and weird-looking. I guess it's all in what people are most comfortable with! :nod:

I do like how you draw his hands (paws?). They're more like in the manga... Opposable thumbs are WIN. The greatest Pokémon ever should have them. |D /biased

Don't use tutorials at all, which partially explains the layout and the fact that I don't circle in the body parts. A lot of people do that, and it works well for them. Don't know what I never got to that.
Never really read the manga either, sorry to say.

Hm, yeah. I actually picked up the circle thing from my friend, because it was working well for her, so.. :shrug: Whatever works for people.
Ah, it's excellent! If you ever get a chance I definitely recommend checking it out. :nod:

This was very nice. I don't use tutorials, but this one I suppose I should, should I ever draw a Mewtwo again.

However, maybe you could mention in the first step the use of what typical 'shapes' in the form one would use...Mewtwo's body seems to be constructed of round ovals and circles, if looking at it at an even more basic level.

Never use tutorials, hence why I didn't do the shape thingy. I honestly don't use it, and never have. The more experienced of my classmates didn't do that, and only the people who didn't know how to draw, who were told to use shapes, used the shapes. I don't believe shapes are natural, but makes it easier if say someone wanted to interpret shading.

Sahkmet Featured By Owner Dec 7, 2010
Well exactly! I don't! I'd rather figure it out on my own and stare at pictures finding the patterns in legs...but that was back then more or less.

I know what you mean, using shapes DOES get in the way. However I meant more my way, which helps with patterns, by the realization of a circle for some parts of say, drawing an elephant, which helps for legs and joints. You don't draw the geometric circle ON the paper but it helps me figure the pattern more so when I was more ametuer than before. But yes too much shapes makes a lot of confusion and eraser shavings.

Unfortunately I don't draw all that "properly". Most people will sort of circle in areas for hands, feet and the like, and if I do that, it just looks weird and more disproportionate. At least you've got that part down.
Thankfully you learn correctly. Those How-To things for the basics of art, especially figure drawing can result in someone picking up someone else's mistakes.
