Blanka serves as a precursor to the events of Street Fighter II. The game tells a tale of how Blanka ate a melon on a poacher’s truck and unwittingly traveled to civilization for the first time. Playing the game as Blanka, the player eventually faces Dan Hibiki as one of Blanka’s mid-bosses. It is then revealed through in-game dialogue that the two know each other and that Blanka had once saved Dan’s life. Dan addresses Blanka as “Jimmy”, and tells him that if ever he needs help, he can ask Dan.
Here is a final drawing of Blanka.

Below are step by step how to draw Blanka, watch the video tutorial for more in dept detail explanation. I usually start drawing the character using simple geometry shapes to get the basic idea down. It is an easy way to sketch out just shape first then draw over more solid detail. It is very important to get correct shape, proportion, and accuracy for initial sketch. This way, when you make a final drawing your drawing will be correct. Remember to always observe the character with keen eyes then keep it simple and keep the foundation correct before going on to the next step.
