Vegeta is an easier character to drawn than Gohan or Goku because you don’t need to draw the body, shoes and as many clothing folds.

Fortunately this character can be created with just a little bit of concentration and practice! Here are some difficulties you may face while drawing:

  • Clothing: When drawing the edges of the torn clothing, use the same method as you did when drawing folds for Gohan and Goku’s lessons. draw two parallel lines with one being bold and the other being thinner.
  • Shading: You can skip the shading part of the lesson and simply color in Vegeta’s hair and top clothing; it will still turn out looking great.


  1. Draw a basic shape that will be transformed to the hair and head.
  2. Add shape to the head and hair. Draw in the contour of his ears.
  3. Draw in the eyes.
  4. Add details to the ears, draw the nose and draw the mouse. Add a few lines to the forehead.
  5. Draw the contour of the body.
  6. Draw torn clothing using method listed above.
  7. Draw muscles using sharp pencil.
  8. Add a few folds to the clothing.
  9. Add shading and depth, if you want. If not, just color in the hair and clothing.
