How to draw Tien Shinhan from DragonBall. Tien Shinhan (天津飯) is a former antagonist and supporting protagonist in the Dragon Ball manga. In this tutorial you will learn to draw a Manga character Tien Shinhan along with basic Manga drawing tips and technique. I usually start drawing with simple geometry shapes to construct the basic Manga head and body. By following this process, you will find drawing is lot easier. There is no big secret in drawing, but it is very important to get the shape and proportion right in the beginning. If you understand its basic foundation, it will be easier no matter what you are trying to draw. You also have to make sure the shape of eyes, nose and mouth are correct and in the accurate spot. If you want to be good at drawing, you will have to practice at least couple hours a day.
Because of his harsh upbringing, Tien Shinhan is initially cold and heartless, thinking nothing of exploiting innocents and inflicting pain. However, Master Roshi and Goku eventually help him to see the folly of his master’s teachings, and he becomes a trusted ally from then on.  The Daizenshuu mentions that Tien Shinhan is a descendant of the of Three-Eyes race (三つ目族, “Triclops”).
