Description: BERBILS!!! I love Ro-Bear Berbils. When I was a kid, I watched the original Thundercats series and was kind of indifferent toward the little creatures. As I got older, though, I learned to appreciate the ridiculous nature of these critters. New episodes of the modern Thundercats cartoon just started airing, and the Berbils made a return, with a slight anime redesign. Overall, I'm pleased with the new designs, so I really wanted to draw up a tutorial for them. I used a pretty crazy style, but all the details are there. Let's get drawing!
Description: OH MY GOODNESS, it's a Berbil! The funny thing about these guide lines is that any more detail and the whole thing would be drawn ;) Circle for the head. Ovals for the hands/forearms. Almond shape for the body. Rectangles for the feet. We've got him leaping up at us from below, so his hands will be really large and in-your-face-ish, and the legs and feet will recede into the background (become smaller).
Description: BERBIL CLAWS. *ahem* I made these especially gnarly, thinking of some of the crazier Japanese robots from old anime series like Dangaioh. I used really thick lines to show that the fingers are closer to us than the head.
Description: Draw curves on each inner finger digit to indicate a mechanical joint. Then draw the pads on the palm of the hands. I couldn't find a good shot of the palms from the cartoon, so I kind of made it up ;)
Description: The upper arms are kind of light light-bulbs, or chicken drumsticks. The shoulder is round, and the arm is skinny. Outline the shoulder with fur, and keep the skinny part smooth. Go ahead and outline the torso shape.
Description: Draw in the details of the torso and arms. We basically just have two panels for chest muscles, an oval in the center of the torso, and rings on the arms, separating the furry and metallic parts. All the other dust and scratches here are optional.
Description: BERBIL INKS. That's just about does it for the Ro-Bear Berbil. In the old series, they all had the exact same body type. In the new series, some are short and wide and some are tall and skinny... but they all follow the same basic pattern as shown here. I really enjoyed drawing this little guy, and I hope you guys liked it. Let me know if there are any other Thundercats or other cartoon characters you'd like to see a tutorial for. Thanks for viewing!
